It has been almost two years since we looked at the updated Mazda6, which had some issues. Now Mazda has updated the car again with hopes to push it past major players like the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. The question is: are there any problems that will scare off customers?

      It's no Mazdaspeed 6. With its 6-Speed manual transmission and all-wheel drive.

      Mazda needs to get rid of the boring WHITE guages........the Red years ago looked better.

      Comparing to the 2013 Mazda 6 auto that I have, what differences this has? I think my 6 sounds nice and throaty even with 2.5 L engine, shifts quite aggressively at times providing a jerk that I love. You can feel it if you floor the pedal at very low speeds in low gears, it downshifts very violently. Does the new 6 still do this? I do not like how the new 6 loses power at the top. I think it would be gross injustice to yourself and Mazda to overlook this car if you are in the market.

      You make choosing the right car so easy. For two years I have watched car reviews from Asia, Europe and Northern America trying to choose a reliable and responsive automatic transmission in a spacious mid sedan. Every car has its negative and positive and expensive price tag. Thanks to your wonderful gift you enable us to educate ourselves in an advance automobile audio. Thanks a million, because you are saving us thousands of dollars/euros avoiding the pitfalls and allowing ourselves to choose the right car.

      For a couple of extra grand I would buy the Kia stinger 2.0L turbo version.

      Can you, or someone else, please, tell me if an G165 petrol motor, 2.0, non turbo(165hp) is enough on this car....Here, in Europe we are so "smashed" by annual taxes and insurances !?!?

      No One Is going to push this car that hard and most of that city driving so that mid range torque is not a bad thing to be honest.
      However you can buy a 2015 Mazda six with a manual and honestly it might be slower but you can have more fun in it.

      It’s a shame this vehicle with a decent all wheel drive system could really bring that engine to life.

      Not dropping AWD into the turbo model is their biggest mistake.

      Mazda needs to work on their weight distribution for the Mazda 6...too much weight up front.

      If Mazda would made the "6" a LIFTBACK it would have an edge over competitors...COM'ON Mazda make the Mazda 6 a Liftback (like the soon to be released VW Arteon).

      I'm on my 3rd Nissan Maxima Lease of of now. How would you compare the Power, and Suspension compared with these two cars?? I have been seriously been considering a new Mazda6 for my next car, but have been concerned with Mazda Power output, and their reliability

      I’ve always thought for a while now that the Mazda 6 is one of the most elegant looking, well designed inside and out, and underrated cars you can buy

      I would not floor the car every time I left the stop line. Moderate that pedal.

      I have a fully bolted and forged Speed 3, 350 whp on 98 pump gas. You need a real suspension setup, including sway bars, motor mounts and a different ECU tune if you want to keep the wheels on the road.

      I rode in an uber car in Taiwan that was a 2018 Mazda 3. I'd never been in a Mazda ever and I gotta say I'm quite impressed with the interior. Everything felt premium and I absolutely loved the slightly grippy leather feel of the dashboard. I drive an Audi and the premium feel felt like my car. Can't say much for the performance since I didn't drive it, but I liked the ride quality and handling of the car as the driver went around corners. I'm really impressed with Mazda.
