The Mazda 6 sedan was introduced nearly a decade ago, and the current gen car was introduced in 2014. It received a significant update in 2016, which gave the car all new interesting looking interiors with much better choice of materials, thus addressing the weak link of the car. Among cars in this segment that tread along the luxury route, the Mazda 6 takes a bold and sporty route. The Mazda family face makes it look a bit too close to the Mazda 3 for comfort, but that apart the Mazda 6 is a lovely looking sedan.
The interiors received an update last year and the all new center console has a really pleasing design. The materials used have a lovely feel to them, like the soft touch panels and the stitched-leatherette panels and the real aluminum bits surrounding the trims. The space though not class-leading, is definitely enough for most common uses.
The Mazda 6 sedan is powered by a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that is good enough for 182.5HP and 250Nm of torque and it transmits all that power through a 6-speed transmission with paddle shifters. The engine though refined and efficient, still cannot match the V6 engines and hybrid powertrains that the competition has to offer. The Mazda 6 sedan offers a sporty driving experience with spot on handling, which really masks its size and really good highway manners. The downside though is that the ride feels a little firm and certain sharp bumps getting the attention of the occupants.
The Mazda 6 is available in S, V, and R Grade trims. The base S trim that rides on 17 inch alloys gets ABS with EBD, dual front, side and curtain airbags, ESP, push button start, a 4-speaker audio system with Bluetooth, cruise control and ISO-FIX child seat anchors. In addition to these features, the V trim gets sunroof, touch screen audio with navigation and 6-speakers, rear camera, auto AC and auto LED headlamps. The top of the line R Grade offers significant active safety features like lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, adaptive headlamps, an 11-speaker audio system and a sinister looking 19-inch alloy wheels.
