About Mazda MAZDA6

The 2017 Mazda6 is proof that a family sedan can be both practical and exciting. While it doesn't boast the sales numbers of rivals like the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry or Ford Fusion, the Mazda6 has an ace up its sleeve: It's one of the most fun-to-drive mainstream midsize sedans money can buy. To do so, you don't need much of it, thanks to a price starting under $23,000. Upgrades for 2017 enhance the Mazda6's appeal, including a standard infotainment system and Mazda's G-Vectoring Control, which aims to lessen driving stress. Only one engine is offered in the Mazda6 and its interior isn't the largest, but if you're looking for a midsize sedan that loves to play, the Mazda6 remains the athlete in its segment.

What's new for 2009?
2009 Mazda MAZDA6

The 2009 MAZDA6 has been completely redesigned from the ground up. Changes go beyond the cosmetic, with two new engine choices, a host of near-luxury like amenities and dimensions that place the MAZDA6 at the top of its segment. By offering the four-cylinder engine and six-speed manual transmission in the Grand Touring trim, Mazda does not penalize drivers who prefer the fuel-efficient four-cylinder over the pricier V6. The new Mazda MAZDA6 is so good that about the only thing we'll miss from the previous generation is the funky five-door hatchback model.

"I was looking to replace a car I wasnt happy with the one I had, initially looked at Honda Accord. I was trying to stay with in a budget and while the Honda seemed like a great car I felt I would have to settle for less features for the price. I went to Mazda knowing their cars are right up there with Honda and I was pleasantly surprise. The Mazda 6 had more features for the same price plus it was a very sharp car. After looking at a few dealers I settled on the one I bought a Touring model with the optional Bose/Moon Roof package. While I have only had it a short time I love this car, it drives great, looks great, and I got an awesome deal, could not be happier. I would certainly recommend this car. Of note a friend bought an Accord LX for the same price, while I wont knock his choice I do know who got the better deal."

"Was very impressed with this vehicle when I first looked at it. I own an Audi A6 and was purchasing this for my daughter. She drove other vehicles but once she drove the Mazda 6 she was done looking and I was glad. Very nice vehicle for the money and more importantly to me I liked the upgraded safety on the 2014 model. That got tested today as evidenced by the photo. Three teenage girls walked away with minor scratches after getting T-boned by a large 4X4 truck. Her replacement will be another Mazda 6."

"I have now had my Red Mazda 6 Touring w/o tech for a week now and 350 miles. Awesome, best in this class and I definitely made the right decision. After over 3 months of looking and multiple test drives on most of the models I'm glad I waited for the 2014 to come out. None of the others in the class made me feel like "this was the car", I felt like I was going to have to settle. I even tried the Audi, Acura and BMW. The 6 was very close to them for a lot less money. The only one close was the Accord Sport, nothing else compared after I drove the Mazda. I wanted something that not everyone else had (Accord, Camry). The Altima was in the mix, but I could not get over the velour on the arm rest. If your looking for a car in this class you HAVE to drive the Mazda!! As my wife said if you want to feel old drive the Camry. I absolutely love this car, gas mileage was the best, it has ZOOM ZOOM, Pandora is great, blind spot monitor, rear camera plus the added motion detector when backing up (already saved me once), blue tooth works great, the red color (lots of compliment) is awesome ( silver was also sharpe), front seat is comfortable as is the leatherette (I'm 6'3" and fit great wife is 5'4" and also fits great). Have a average of 27mpg so far. The only con so far is the clock is down low and not by the dash. Do not let the dealer try to make you pay sticker price, if your willing to drive you can find a dealer under sticker."
