2015 Mazda6 Wins Tech Award at GAAMA Family Choice Challenge
The Greater Atlanta Automotive Media Association (GAAMA) named the 2015 Mazda6 the winner of its “Technology Choice Award” at their Family Choice Challenge.
“A repeat winner at Family Choice Challenge, the Mazda6 consistently earns accolades for its impressive combination of style and substance,” said GAAMA President Nick Palermo in a press release. “Upon first glance, the Mazda6 has the striking lines of a show car. But a more in-depth look reveals a vehicle that delivers comfort and efficiency to match its visual appeal. Parents love midsize sedans, which are right-sized for family life. Irresistible styling and plenty of useful technology help the Mazda6 to rise to the top among a field of very capable competitors.”
While the Mazda6 did not earn the same award at last year’s first-ever GAAMA Family Choice Challenge, it has indeed taken home an award at both ceremonies. Last year, the Mazda6 earned the title of Green Choice for Families due to its superior combination of fuel economy and performance.
Further, the Mazda CX-5 was the overall winner at last year’s Family Choice Challenge, taking home the title of Top Family Choice with a score of 25.33 out of a possible 30. The Mazda6 was not far behind with an overall score of 25.13.
GAAMA praised the 2015 Mazda6 for serving as a bridge between the present and a day where cars drive themselves, talking up innovations such as adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, tand the i-ELOOP technology found in the Mazda6 i Grand Touring model.
Other standard features available on the 2015 Mazda6 include aspects of the i-ACTIVSENSE suite, which includes six airbags, daytime running lights, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) with Traction Control System (TCS), and Hill Launch Assist (HLA) among others.
