The 2008 Mazda Mazda6 doesn't disappoint when it comes to cool features, and while the ability to customize isn't spectacular, there is still some room for personalization of your 2008 Mazda.
As one would expect, standard features vary across the trim levels of the 2008 Mazda Mazda6. All trims of Mazda's 2008 Mazda6 feature "cruise control, steering-wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls," and "a six-speaker AM/FM stereo with CD player and Sirius satellite radio capability," according to Car and Driver. They add that the 2008 Mazda Mazda6 Sport VE adds standard "leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, [and] an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat." Car and Driver also writes that the 2008 Mazda Touring edition of the Mazda6 brings standard "heated front seats, leather-trimmed seats, [and] a seven-speaker AM/FM/satellite radio/CD Bose sound system with a 200-watt amplifier," while the top-end Mazda6 Grand Touring picks up standard "automatic climate control, a power sunroof...and electroluminescent gauges."
Optional features on the Mazda 2008 Mazda6 are generally limited to features that are available on the higher trim levels. Edmunds lists some of the highlights among the optional features as "a sunroof on the Sport Value Edition and Touring, and a navigation system on the Grand Touring." The optional navigation system on the Grand Touring version of Mazda's 2008 Mazda6 is voice-activated, a cool feature working its way into more and more vehicles today. Kelley Blue Book adds that an "in-dash six-disc CD changer" and "auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass" can be yours for a little extra cash. Sirius Satellite Radio is also offered.
The 2008 Mazda Mazda6 sports a wealth of cool standard features, especially as you move up the trim levels.
