Mazda 6 Owner Car Reviews

2018 Mazda 6 GT (5yr) Review

Gather 'round children, for I have a story to tell. I over-analyse. I research to the nth degree. I angst. But most of all, I observe a tight wallet when it comes to 'me'. All these seemingly logical things are bad traits when I also take the emotional route of lusting after cars I cannot justify buying nor afford and spend obscene amounts of time on CarAdvice, and perhaps more dangerously, websites showing car classifieds...

2005 Mazda 6 MPS (Leather) review

In 2007, I was seeking a replacement for our Hyundai Elantra for my wife. We were holidaying on the NSW Central Coast when I spotted a Subaru Liberty GT in the carpark. I’d always fancied them, but buying new just wasn’t in our budget at the time. A two-year-old used example was...

2015 Mazda 6 Atenza review

A Note from the Editor: Stock image has been used in this review. I've owned this car for about a year and have traveled about 20,000km in that time. I am extremely pleased with the Mazda. It has proven to be reliable, very fuel efficient (although way off official figures as we all expect) and it even looks good, especially in Sonic Silver with the shadow chrome wheels! I bought the car as a 'daily'...

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...

2010 Mazda 6 Classic Review

My 2010 Mazda 6 sedan with its six speed manual transmission is an excellent all round package. The 2.5 litre engine is very willing and moves swiftly through the gears with the engine never really sounding stressed. The gearbox has short precise throws. The ride and handling are excellent striking a great balance...

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...
