2014 6 – Road Test Review out of 10

The outgoing Mazda 6 was a bit boring. it handled well, did it#8217;s job as a mid sedan but never really us. Given that Toyota so many more Camrys, the new 6 needed to be great.

It#8217;s a sheet design, they away the old mold and came up an aggressive  modern car with new suspension, power ­train, and exterior#8230; and boy does it look . No longer the car that stands in the at parties with an alcohol beer, this one has attitude and That style pasess to the interior#8230;.but more on that

The 2014 Mazda 6 has a 4 cylinder 2488 cc producing  184 hp @ 5700 rpm and 185 @ 3250 rpm. We drove the version, Touring and that was a mistake. 0-60 takes a 7.9 seconds which is over a slower than a 4 cylinder Camry, which whizzes to 60 in

This engine uses Skyactiv G technology which fuel economy by using high compression ratios#8230;the for a gas engine. It also improves at lower revs. Unfortunately it is not and we believe they need a to compete.

How many times we said that?

Once on move the Mazda rides if fairly stiff, not unlike a Fusion  and the body is controlled with little It definitely feels like a sedan#8230;..it just needs power. The gas pedal feels almost as if they don#8217;t you to floor it. It all feels engineered for and the transmission feels lazy.

We think the Sport model manual transmission is the one to go for at $21,675 up to the Touring and the price shoots up

Through the bends the Mazda a firm line and the steering is and nicely weighted. Grip is too especially on the 19 in wheels on the Touring.

They have done an job on the interior. The seats are superb and you in place well. The dash are smooth and wouldn#8217;t feel out of in a VW which excels at interiors.

The model has few options and you don#8217;t get

Spec out the more expensive and you can feast on 5.8-inch touch satellite radio, navigation, climate control, auto-dimming bi-xenon headlights, a rear camera, power seats, and safety options such as monitoring and lane-departure warning.

#8230;..it#8217;s a bit too much nannying for us .

Moving up to the Touring version a touch screen, 19-inch automatic climate control, and a driver’s seat.

One thing to out is that Mazda may give us the version (not confirmed which has a 2.2 liter turbo with 175 hp and 309 lb-ft of torque and and automatic transmission.

These are specs so these number may be a different for the US market.

W hat would we do?

Get the manual transmission and car is way more fun and truer to it#8217;s The auto box dulls what is a fine package but this car beats out the dull Camry and Honda Accord, even the Accord is quicker. #8230;#8230;. and give us a turbo version or a 6 option, we really don#8217;t which. OR wait for the diesel, that is a thumping amount of and we like that!
