Traction Control?

Does anyone know if the Mazda 6 will include or have options for Traction control, & can it be turned on/off?

Yes. In Sweden it has TCR in all models but the 1.8 version. And it can, as in the 626, be turned off. In fact I learned that the one and only component that is the same in the 6 as in the 626 is the switch for TCR...

You have to check before you buy though if TCR is included or if it is optional on the model you choose.

In Estonia it has DSC, TCS and BA as an option with 1,8 version (+450$). EBD and ABS are standard in all models, as well as disc brakes on all round (vented in front). I think it should be the same in Sweden.

There has been some discussion that traction control and stability control may not make it over on the US versions. Frankly that sucks ass. :(

As per MazdaUSA's web site, the "S" will have TCS standard, along with ABS/EBD. Both of these are also listed as Package Options on the base.

As far as the specs, it will be optional. On the other hand, I'm quite sure that Mazda USA has not set the different packaging levels yet. For several reasons. One is them being able to analyze the data from sales all over the world...this time you guys are last. Bad for you (and good for us, it's usually the other way around...)

I'm sure there will be packaging levels available where you will have all the goodies standard...

It looks like we only get two trim levels. "I" and "S".

I am thinking (hoping) traction control will go along with stability control; ie. get stability and you get traction.
