The Mazda 6, a gorgeous mid-size sedan, is getting some added equipment for the 2017 model year with an ever-so-slight uptick in price. Pricing starts at $22,780 for the Sport model, which is an increase of $450 over the outgoing base car. Prices across the lineup have inched up $500 or less.

The Sport comes with a manual transmission—yay(!)—while an automatic will set you back $23,830. The Sport, regardless of transmission, gets Mazda’s G-Vectoring control that tweaks torque delivery to the front wheels. The Sport manual sedan also gets Mazda Connect 7.0-inch touchscreen. Push-button ignition, 17-inch wheels and a backup camera are also standard.

The Touring trim is next up. A manual Touring car starts at $25,030 while the automatic starts at $26,080. Both prices are increases of $250 over the outgoing 2016 model. Nineteen-inch wheels, blind-spot monitoring, power driver’s seat and rear cross-traffic alert remain standard. New standard equipment includes rain-sensing wipers, Smart City brake support and automatic headlamps. Not a bad deal. 

There are two packages available, but only for Touring 6s with the automatic. There is a package that adds a Bose sound system, satellite radio and moonroof for $1,325. The Touring Premium Package adds LED headlights, auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated front seats, and adaptive front lighting for $1,425.

The top trim is the Grand Touring, which starts at $31,530—a $500 increase. The price brings additional standard equipment to the sedan’s already long list. New equipment includes automatic high-beams, Smart City brake support, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control and traffic-sign recognition. Other standard features include a head-up display, dual power seats, shifter paddles and navigation. A new Grand Touring Package adds active grille shutters, nappa leather with contrast piping, iELOOP regenerative braking, LED interior lighting, a black headliner and heated rear seats.

Considering all the new equipment made standard, the 2017 Mazda 6 is looking to keep itself the king of the mid-size luxury market. There is no car in the price range that looks as good, or drives as well as, the Mazda 6.
