Mazda6 And CX-5 Receive Two More APEAL Awards From J.D. Power
The Mazda6 and CX-5 have won the J.D. Power APEAL award for 2015 in each of their respective segments.
The APEAL award is based on surveys that customers fill out after 90 days of owning their vehicles, explaining their levels of satisfaction with the automobile’s engine, transmission, handling, brakes, comfort, cooling, and sound system; among several other aspects.
The Mazda6 comes with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder SKYACTIV-G engine that produces 184 horsepower. Consumers have the option of a SKYACTIV-MT six-speed manual or SKYACTIV-Drive six-speed automatic transmission. The Mazda6 is capable of reaching an EPA-estimated 40 mpg, which is the best fuel economy of any gas-powered sedan.
The 2016 CX-5 comes with either the 2.0-liter four-cylinder SKYACTIV-MT engine capable of 155 horsepower or the 2.5-liter four-cylinder SKYACTIV-Drive engine that produces 184 horsepower. The CX-5 also comes with additional features such as the Mazda Navigation System, Pandora capability, and Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
“Since going on sale in February, the refreshed 2016 Mazda6 and CX-5 have provided car-shoppers with what were already segment-leading vehicles and improved upon them with new technologies, premium materials and enhanced style,” said Jim O’Sullivan, president and CEO, Mazda North American operations “We’re honored that J.D. Power and our customers recognize our relentless efforts, and we look to keep building the best cars and crossovers we can to meet the needs of discerning drivers.”
