The price includes an $835 destination charge and reflects a $450 increase over the base 2016 Mazda 6.
The base 2017 Mazda 6 features a six-speed manual transmission, 17-inch alloy wheels and a rearview camera.
All 2017 Mazda 6 sedans are equipped with a 184-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. A six-speed automatic transmission is a $1,050 standalone option on Sport and Touring models.
The top-of-the-line 2017 Mazda 6 Grand Touring is priced at $31,530, including destination fees. Details include perforated leather-trimmed seats, paddle shifters and a rear lip spoiler.
A Touring package adds a Bose sound system, moonroof and satellite radio for $1,325.
Machine Gray Metallic paint, a new premium paint color that will be available later in the model year, adds $300 to the bottom line.
The updated Mazda 6 adopts G-Vectoring Control, which also is being introduced on the 2017 Mazda 3. A new steering wheel is borrowed from the 2016 Mazda CX-9 and gauges are easier to read.
The technology improves steering responsiveness through the precise control of engine torque.
Edmunds says: Mazda fine-tunes the 2017 Mazda 6 and adds a modest price increase.
