2017 Mazda 6 Sport sedan review

Can a new suite of updates sweeten the deal for the price-busting Mazda 6 Sport sedan? We spend a week with it to find out.

2017 Mazda 6 GT Wagon Review

The 2017 Mazda 6 GT wagon shows the Japanese brands can do 'premium' too...

2017 Mazda 6 Review

Subtle changes inside and out, aim to keep the Mazda 6 fresh in the minds of medium sedan buyers. The segment isn't as popular as it used to be, but the Mazda 6 is still at the top of the pile.

2016 Mazda 6 GT Diesel Review

Australian new car buyers have been moving away from the classic sedan in droves, preferring hatchbacks and SUVs to the previously unassailable four-door family car. The 2016 Mazda 6 GT is proof that the medium sedan is far from dead, however, offering the value, comfort and refinement lacking in similarly-priced vehicles from other segments...

2016 Mazda 6 GT Wagon Review

Read the full article here. Do European brands, particularly those from Germany, really have sole ownership of the ‘premium car’ tagline? Public consensus notwithstanding, Mazda Australia certainly doesn’t think so, and the Mazda 6 tested here may be the Japanese manufacturer’s finest means of prosecuting its case.

2016 Mazda 6 GT Review

Medium Passenger Segment – say it out loud and even the name of the segment is boring. It’s enough to put the genuine motoring enthusiast into a deep slumber. Don’t believe me? Have a listen to the following luminaries… Honda Accord, Hyundai i40, Nissan Altima, Peugeot 508, Renault Latitude, Subaru Liberty, Toyota Camry, Volkswagen Jetta...

Why the Mazda6 remains one of the most engaging mid-size cars you can buy in Australia.

Medium wagon comparison: Hyundai i40 v Mazda 6 v Volkswagen Passat

At the risk of flogging the proverbial horse, we often wonder why more people don’t buy mid-sized wagons over medium SUVs. We understand the appeal of the latter body type’s high riding position, with its greater visibility, ease of access and feeling of safety. But with some equanimity we'd counter that passenger car alternatives often offer more, for less...

Medium Sedan Comparison : Toyota Camry v Mazda 6 v Hyundai Sonata v Subaru Liberty

Medium cars are struggling in the face of an SUV uprising. Quite literally, the raising-up of body height and seating position has allowed the sport utility vehicle to act both like a magician entrancing customers, and a grim reaper destroying traditional sedan and wagons. There are massive upsides for those buyers who are determined to fly in the face of fashion, however...

Medium car comparison : Toyota Camry v Mazda 6 v Nissan Altima v Skoda Octavia v Holden Malibu v Hyundai i40

Medium is the new large. By 2017 when the large car segment will have been thrown into further disarray with the loss of the Ford Falcon and question marks surrounding imported replacements for the Holden Commodore and Toyota Aurion, it really has to be. The mass exodus from large six-cylinder family sedans that has happened in recent years, however, hasn’t been the expected boon for medium cars...

2016 Mazda 6 GT Safety review

I bought this good-looking Mazda 6 GT Wagon diesel last July 2016. I have had this car for just over a year now and thought I’d share my experience. Why the GT and Diesel? Well, glad you asked! Personally, I believe the GT is worth every penny with its head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, moonroof, nice comfortable leather seats, the beautiful 19-inch wheels and other extras you get when compared to the Touring variant...

2016 Mazda 6 GT Safety review

Bought this brand new in 2016 to replace an increasingly unreliable Peugeot 407 coupe. I decided on a wagon for the extra versatility. It certainly looks good – slightly aggressive and imposing but with a rakish rear. Space-wise, it is large enough for the three of us in my family. As many testers have said, the noise suppression is not as good as it should be for a 'premium' car...

2016 Mazda 6 Touring Review

I have just completed 1500km in my new car received two weeks ago. The diesel has bags of torque once car is rolling but suffers from turbo lag when taking off from a stand still. this is particularly bad when trying to get away from a stop sign on tee intersections which lack clear visibility and demand quick getaways...

2015 Mazda 6 Atenza Review

In the past, I had a 2012 CX9 which I loved a lot. But I was losing a fuel card and the 2012 CX9 was thirsty, so for my new car, economy, comfort, space, style and technology were key factors . Economy in the Mazda 6 is outstanding, with the car able to travel from Adelaide to Melbourne comfortably on a tank running 91RON...
