SAMURAI RIDES: CREATING SUMMER MEMORIES WITH THE MAZDA 6 #DRIVEMAZDA

Warm temperatures and extended hours of day light are some traits of the summer season. It is also the time to get out and meet up with your loved ones for cookouts & BBQ’s. Summer is the pay back  for all those snowy winters nights where you could only look out the window at the wind whipped snow drifts along the streets. Now you can truly enjoy the outdoors.

As the official first days of Summer hit New York City I had quite the attractive partner hit the town with me. The 2016 Mazda 6 with its sleek sporty body type was made to navigate open roads w/ the windows down, moon roof open and your favorite tunes blasting. My summer activities would take me from the concrete jungle of New York City to the open spaces of the Peach Tree State. It was here where another Mazda companion awaited me. With a massive BBQ to prepare for the Mazda CX 5 helped me hit roads from downtown Atlanta to Stone Mountain.

Hopping into the Mazda 6 was really like reuniting with an old friend. Not too long ago I spent time driving the Mazda 3 and the 6 is essentially the bigger brother model. Bigger, stronger, more powerful but with familiar characteristics and features that connect the two. For example the flip-up Active Driving screen is here to give you your real-time info without looking down from the road.

I found the safety features to be more effective on the 6. You could set the sensitive of the lane detection fields so it’s not going off every time you pass another vehicle. The now standard center console joystick is here so you can keep you eyes fixed on the path ahead while adjusting navigation, Bluetooth connections or audio options for your sound system.

I really wish I had to opportunity to truly open this baby up on the wider highways of the south vs the tighter lanes of New York. That pleasure of riding though the south went to the 2016 Mazda CX 5.
