On my recent trip to Orlando, Florida I had the pleasure of driving a 2016 Mazda6 i Grand Touring provided to me by Drive Shop. I had so much fun during the week I had the car, sporting around Orlando in the red car like I was in my twenties again!
2016 Mazda6 i Grand Touring
The features that came with the car were almost as much fun to use as driving the car was. The automatic LED headlights, Adaptive Front-lighting System, Moon roof with one-touch open, 8-way power driver’s seat with power lumbar adjustment, Variable heated front seats, Bluetooth® hands-free phone, and audio capability made my experience simplistic and futuristic at the same time.
Mazda’s Advanced Keyless Entry System and rearview camera ensured that my trips were safe and easy and I loved the fact that I only needed press a button and the car quietly started; there were times I wasn’t even sure the car was running! The rearview camera made backing up in parking lots simple and reliable.
I loved the navigation system since I’m completely direction challenged. I explored Orlando with ease knowing that all I had to do was punch the directions in the GPS and the turn by turn were right there for me.
The Bose® center point Surround Sound system with AudioPilot® 2 and 11 speakers (including woofer) made each outing a virtual concert! I loved pumping up the volume (safely of course!) and jamming to my favorite tunes.
The dual-zone automatic climate control system made it easy for both my passenger and myself to remain completely comfortable during our outings.
I was incredibly impressed with the gas mileage. I traveled around Orlando for two days before I needed to refuel. I don’t often believe the listed estimated fuel efficiency for cars but I can attest to the 28/40 mpg listed for the Mazda6 I Grand Touring I enjoyed.
This car was a blast to drive and, I must admit, I enjoyed the stares I received while driving it! The beautifully engineered and designed four door, sporty automatic was the highlight of my trip and I would absolutely recommend this car if you’re looking to purchase one. I know I’m considering it myself when I’m in the market.
