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 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 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...

Holden Commodore Evoke Sportwagon v Mazda 6 Touring: Comparison Review

It's comparison round three for the new Holden Commodore. After proving superior to its six-cylinder arch rival in round one, and in V8 specification just beating a top-notch hot-hatch in round two, the Commodore now battles off with one of the best load-luggers in the business. The Holden Commodore Evoke Sportwagon kicks off at $36,990, or $2000 more than the sedan...

2017 Mazda 6 update launches in the US, due in Australia by year's end

A mildly-updated 2017 Mazda 6 has been revealed in the US, bringing the company’s new G-Vectoring Control system and interior enhancements to the medium sedan and wagon. Revealed in the States alongside the newly-refreshed Mazda 3 that has already launched Down Under, the new Mazda 6 looks identical to its predecessor – which was just updated early last year – with all the changes happening in the cabin and under the skin...

Mazda 6 likely to get 2.5-litre turbo engine, smaller models also possible

The all-new 2.5-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine that has debuted in the 2016 Mazda CX-9 is highly likely to be fitted to the Mazda 6 sedan and wagon. CarAdvice spoke with Mazda North America vehicle development engineer Dave Coleman at the launch of the new CX-9 this week, and he said that the new turbo engine can fit in the Mazda 6 – and the Mazda 3, as well...

2016 Mazda 6 gets safety update, price cuts

The 2016 Mazda 6 mid-sized sedan and wagon range is now better value than before, and safer, after the company made a suite of active and preventative anti-crash features standard across the board. From now, every Mazda 6 variant will come with blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror and low-speed laser-driven forward autonomous braking...

Mazda overtakes Holden in 2015: First full-importer to finish second overall

By beating Holden in the 2015 sales race, Mazda has become the first full-line vehicle importer to crack the top-two in the Australian market for a full calendar year. The Japanese brand sold 114,024 vehicles in 2015, representing healthy growth of 13.2 per cent over 2014. This propelled the company from bronze to silver, given local hero Holden shrunk 3 per cent to 102,951...

2012 Mazda 6 Atenza Review

I bought one of the first of the SkyActiv Mazda 6 sedans, and have been very pleased overall. It suits me well, but a few aspects probably limit its appeal. Like other cars in the so-called medium class, it is very much a family-sized car in the cabin. The front accommodation is spacious enough, and there is plenty of legroom in the back, without being up to limo standard...

2013 Mazda 6 Sport Review

My parents purchased a 2013 Mazda 6 Sport wagon (in 2.5L petrol guise) in June 2013. This, correspondingly, was the vehicle I learnt to drive in and I proceed to drive it extensively on my P-plates. Before I advance, I must salute Mazda for making the car look so damn good...

2015 Mazda 6 Sport Review

OK, now a serious review. Some bloggers didn't appreciate the sense of humour from my owner's review I just posted. So what do I think of the Mazda 6 Sport sedan. The handling and roadholding is pretty sharp. Obviously nothing like the MX5 I just departed from. It's a pretty good compromise though...

2015 Mazda 6 Sport Review

  Having owned thirty-five cars in thirty-five years, I believe I've earned the right to review. As a mechanic in an earlier life, picking up failed road worthy's for a song, doing them up and making a quick $500 was a right of passage for a young struggler on award wages. Thankfully life has moved on for me...
