Topping the range, the Grand Touring model checks in at $31,530. This trim level adds such step-up amenities as perforated leather seating, a navigation system, head-up display, lighted grille, LED foglamps, six-way power passenger seat, dark alloy wheels, paddle shifters, radar cruise control, and a rear lip spoiler. Standard safety equipment includes lane-keep assist and traffic sign recognition. Laminated front side windows help keep the Grand Touring quiet inside.
The new $2,500 Premium Package for Grand Touring trim includes i-ELOOP regenerative braking with active grille shutters, rear outboard seat heaters, a heated steering wheel, Nappa leather seating surfaces, LED accent lighting, black headliner, and leather-wrapped steering wheel.
With i-ELOOP installed, fuel economy is slightly better, estimated at 27/35 mpg (city/highway), or 30 mpg combined. For the 2016 model, the EPA had issued a considerably thriftier estimate for a Mazda6 with i-ELOOP: 28/40 mpg (city/highway), or 32 mpg combined.
