Human-Machine Interface now easier to Use

The facelift model has been upgraded with a newly-evolved human-machine interface system (HMI), now with instruments that are easier to use. The numbers in the driver instrumentation are larger and the ambient temperature indicator is no longer in the driver cluster, but in the centre display where the front passenger can also read it.

The new steering wheel switches have been revised to be more intuitive with one function only per switch. With the new Info button, for instance, the driver can efficiently monitor fuel consumption by scrolling through the driver information system (DIS) quickly, calling up the following data:

* Current fuel consumption * Average fuel consumption * Driving range on remaining fuel * Average vehicle speed

Mazda 6's Bluetooth hands-free telephoning system is enhanced to be easier and more practical and now includes an audio connection for playing music wireless from portable music players.
