Mazda delivers Zoom-Zoom with style! by Movieye from Austin, Texas on 02/05/2013. Trim: 2014 Mazda Mazda6 i Touring AT, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Styling, drivetrain and power, seat comfort, value of the Tech packaging (includes BOSE stereo, backup camera, and Blind Spot monitoring - unlike the Ford Fusion Tech package that forces upgrade to Titanium to get the stereo), interior comfort and size,gas mileage of the Skyactiv engine, sports car like handling. Quiet and near-luxurious.
Cons: Touring edition has very dark interior, not enough storage cubby holes
Overall review: The Mazda6 is an awesome attractively priced mid-sized car for people who like to drive. Styling is jag-like, interior is almost Germanic in functionality, and the new Skyactiv engine and drivetrain has been delivering 28 mpg in the city consistently. I picked the Mazda 6 over the Fusion because 6 Touring plus Tech package included nav, BOSE stereo, BLIS and rear view camera while the Fusion forced an upgrade to the top tieredTitanium package if you wanted the stereo. The Mazda console is a lot more driver-centric and friendly compared to the touch-screen-crazy MyTouch of the Ford. The Mazda 6 is a worthy alternative to an Audi A4, Acura TL, Fusion Titanium.

You must drive this car! by Snowflake from Snohomish on 02/17/2013. Trim: 2014 Mazda Mazda6 i Sport AT, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Number one is the looks. I think Mazda hit the nail on the head with Kodo. Great styling, but not overboard. Fuel economy is top notch with the Skyactive-G engine and transmission. Average so far is 31 -32 mpg over the first 300 miles. And the transmission is super smooth and quick. Interior is very nice with a very comfortable front seat and driving position. Handling is on par with much more expensive sport sedans. The central stack and instrument panel are easy on the eyes and simple to use. Bluetooth works well with my Android phone. The backup camera is an unexpected bonus as well. Gobs of room in the trunk and the fold flat rear seats give even more useful carrying capacity.
Cons: The only slight con would be because of a bit of road noise on some rough roads. But this could be primarily because of the choice of tires that Mazda selected for the vehicle, which are high performance all-seasons from Yokohama.
Overall review: Anyone who is in the market for a new sedan with a quality feel, great looks, class leading fuel economy and sporty handling should drive this car.

The Mazda 6 Aka: "Johnny On The Spot" by JamesG on 02/02/2013. Trim: 2014 Mazda Mazda6 i Grand Touring AT.
Pros: Nice exterior design; near the top of its class Interior make-up is of high quality materials Gas mileage is exceptional Dual Exhaust system compliments the rear of the vehicle
Cons: power delivery is average at best with only 184HP Price tag of over $30 Grand for some trim levels?? Really!! No option for turbo charged 4 or V6 option?
Overall review: 2014 Mazda 6 really stands out amongst its peers. With new designs of the Fusion, Altima, and Accord the Mazda had to bring something out to attract car buyers. Exterior and interior on the 6 is definitely sharp and it will get your neighbors attention. You will find certain design cues taken from other upscale vehicles in the 6 but, you will wrapped in comfort and style. The car has the new Skyactive technology which helps the car produce 184 Horses and 185 in the torque department. The drive is smooth but, this is no performance sedan, its more like a upscale midsize gas saver. The Mazda has treaded into the warfare of the midsize market but, it looks like it can holds its on with the trend in the industry being gas mileage over peformance for the family sedan. Overall the 6 is a solid pick for the single male or female to the family looking for some new wheels for the new year

LOTS of Good and some Bad!!!! by Norb...Charleston, SC on 03/26/2013. Trim: 2014 Mazda Mazda6 i Grand Touring AT, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Head turning design....I have fully loaded( White on Beige) Grand Touring version with all the options other than remote start....After 700 miles 32 MPG combined is a great number with my led foot...Tech package is very user friendly and works quite well...although Mazda wont let you use NAV Commander while driving(very annoying). Intelligent HID head lights are incredibly helpful and fun to watch on every turn. Great cornering and decent steering feed back.Soft touch interior with 2 tone leather definitely a welcomed touch...and finally VERY smooth 6 speed automatic...with workable paddle shifters...very little road noise.....and fantastic 11 speakers BOSE rig...Cant beat it for around $31K
Cons: Cant use NAV while driving(only voice command).Very frustrating is the lack of illumination of buttons on any of the doors Screen is useful but too small and ruins sleek dash design, center arm rest annoyingly slides with every braking(will take to dealer to tighten it) VERY little storage for family sedan,gear knob looks like an after thought very generic...Adaptive Cruise Control keeps too big of a gap behind other cars even on nearest setting allowing more cars get in front of you, and few times on curves while passing large 18 wheelers it will violently apply brakes thinking is behind somebody.DANGEROUS!!! Finally from 70 to 90 MPH must shift manually or it will take a day to accelerate
Overall review: In my one week of ownership over all I am pleased with the car intended functions....Its fun to drive and it makes my driveway look sexier than ever before...I thoroughly checked out all the competition (Nissan, Honda, Toyota) and this car was the only choice for me.....Looks and handling alone was enough.....all the other Mid size sedans are boring and vanilla with Camry leading the way...Keep also in mind that all Mazda 6 are engineered and assembled in Japan with the highest quality control.....in fact I also purchased 2014 cx-5 for my wife so its ZOOM-ZOOM for us from now on.

Great, if not the best, mid size sedan. by crf50racer from Maryland on 02/02/2013. Trim: 2014 Mazda Mazda6 i Sport AT, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Feature packed for a base model - Bluetooth, HD Radio, Pandora, text messaging, rear view camera - all standard. Very nice ride, well balanced between sporty and soft, with plenty of power on demand. Very high quality feel to the interior. TONS of space. Fuel mileage.
Cons: No moonroof/Bose option that is offered on all other Mazda products. Moonroof only available on GT model.
Overall review: Perfect balance of sport and family hauler. Loads of tech available if you want it, plenty of standard features for the more value minded. And 38mpg! Mazda has a winner with this one.
