The Japanese are known for their affinity for high-tech devices, and that is definitely reflected in the features found on the 2009 Mazda Mazda6. Even the base Mazda6 Mazda offers compelling standard features, and the options list on the top-end models seems to be aimed squarely at entry-level luxury competitors.
The standard features list varies across the 2009 Mazda Mazda6 lineup, but for entry-level consumers, the base Mazda Mazda6 SV certainly doesn't want for features. ConsumerGuide writes that every Mazda6 comes with a "tilt/telescopic steering wheel w/radio controls," an "AM/FM/CD/MP3 player," full power accessories, and "automatic-off headlights." Moving up to the Touring and Grand Touring versions of the Mazda6 Mazda, Cars.com says that additional standard features include a "leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob," along with 17- or 18-inch "alloy wheels" and stylish "LED taillamps" on the Grand Touring models. Motor Trend also notes that Mazda6 "Grand Tourings get full leather trim, dual-zone A/C, and dual power/heated buckets as well as Xenon headlamps."
When it comes to options, the 2009 Mazda Mazda6 doesn't disappoint. The Mazda6 offers options in both packages and as stand-alone features. Road & Track even goes so far as to say that the "available luxury amenities" make the Mazda6 "a poor man's Lexus." The feature that gets the most attention in reviews read by TheCarConnection.com is the optional sound system, which Road & Track says is a "sensational sounding 333-watt, 10-speaker-plus-subwoofer sound system by Bose." According to ConsumerGuide, that sound system is available through the "Moon Roof and Bose" Package, which also incorporates a "power sunroof" and "satellite radio." The available Convenience Package "adds GT-like upgrades to the Touring" trim of the Mazda6, according to Motor Trend, and includes features like the blind-spot alert system and a wireless cell phone link. Cars.com adds that an "optional DVD navigation system with 7-inch display, touch-screen and voice-activated controls" is available on the Mazda6 Grand Touring. Rounding out the options list is a "remote engine start" feature that ConsumerGuide says is available on all Mazda6 models except the SV.
