Next Mazda 6 May Snub Smartphones For Manual!

By  | 

Mazda has been hyping about the 2018 Mazda6 for the past couple of months or so and now, we can finally get a good look at the car. The Japanese make unveiled the 2018 Mazda6 at the LA Auto Show and the early reveal screams “Vroom!”

This cannot be helped as the highlight with the new Mazda 6 is the addition of a new turbocharged powertrain. In detail, Mazda confirmed that the 2018 Mazda6 will come out running on a 2.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that is packed with 250hp.

This is considered pretty high for an everyday midsized sedan and it promises to offer the most engaging driving experience in the segment it competes in.

But of course, not all is perfect with the Mazda6 for the average ‘enthusiast’ because some of them are already unhappy over the absence of manual with the turbo mill. There is also that ongoing complaints about the Mazda6 not having Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Well, phone-pairing systems are still delayed by Mazda but the reports indicating that manual won’t feature on the 2.5L turbo mill is not confirmed yet. Credible source, Motor Trend, indicated that Mazda is still pending to decide on if they will offer manual and a confirmation on this will happen in the near future.

This means that there is still hope for us to experience the ultimate Mazda6 with a manual and we would gladly take it over Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
