Mazda 6 is a car that was produced between 2002 and 2007. The Mazda 6 is available as a hatchback, sedan or wagon. The vehicle is offered with four petrol engines and two diesel engines. The 1.8-liter engine is good enough for city driving, but feels slightly inadequate on the freeway.
The larger 2.0-liter petrol engine offers very decent acceleration. The turbo diesel engine is surprisingly excellent. The latest facelift of the Mazda 6 includes a number of changes that have made the Mazda 6 better than ever.
The Mazda 6 is a car that is represented quite well in most areas. The Mazda 6 is reasonably designed, but smaller engines have to work harder, which creates excessive noise in the cabin. Otherwise, noise from the road and wind are pretty well insulated. The Mazda 6 is cheaper than Ford's equivalent model, Mondeo, but both cars are built on the same platform.
The service is cheaper and the resale value is great, but fuel economy could be better. The car is well built and should not be expected to have any major problems, given Mazda's reputation for reliability. Inside the car, everything is made of top quality materials that are soft to the touch and beautiful to look at.
The interior is especially improved in the 2005 facelift. All control elements, buttons and switches are placed in ideal locations. The seat and steering wheel have many adjustments making it easy to find a comfortable driving position. However, rear visibility is limited by the high trunk line. There is also plenty of head, leg and shoulder room in the front and rear passenger seats.
The Mazda 6 is a spacious car. The trunk is quite spacious. The rear seats can be folded down to create more luggage space. All cars come with standard front and side airbags, as well as anti-lock brakes. Unfortunately, only the TS2 and Sport models have standard stability control. Safety equipment includes Parktronic and an alarm.
There are four package options for the Mazda 6. The S trim comes with air conditioning, alloy wheels and a CD player. The TS adds climate control and cruise control. The TS2 trim comes with an upgraded stereo, power sunroof and stability control. Unfortunately, only the 2.3-liter engine cars and the powerful diesel are available with large alloy wheels, xenon headlights, and a rear spoiler.
