The Mazda 6 station wagon comes across as an extremely smart looking vehicle, thanks to the sporty looking sedan variant which really stands out in a crowd even today – around 3 years after it was launched. The sedan and the station wagon are identical all the way till the B-pillar, and after that the station wagon takes a different route, as opposed to the flowing roofline of the sedan. But even in this station wagon guise, the rear still looks sharp and sporty – kudos to the Mazda designers for having got the design right on the spot.
The interiors too are a straight lift from the sedan, and that is actually a good thing, as the 2016 update to the Mazda 6 made the interiors a really nice place to be in, with comfortable seats that offer good lateral support and adequate space all around. The center console is smartly turned out, however misses out on many premium features and textures that the sedan variant can be had with. And the 506L huge trunk adds to the practicality, and increases its appeal.
The only engine option for the Mazda 6 station wagon is the 2.0L 4-cylinder petrol engine with 153HP and 200Nm, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. This however feels a little underpowered, especially when compared with the 2.5L engine on the sedan. Handling is a strong point, and that gives this station wagon a unique identity.
The 2.0 Station wagon comes in just one variant which gets ABS with EBD, dual front, side and curtain airbags, ESP and ISO-FIX child seat anchors. This variant is also decently well-equipped with dual zone – full auto AC, push button start, audio system with 4 speakers and Bluetooth and LED tail lamps. But one cannot help but miss the far better equipped variants that are available on the sedan body style.
