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?

      Your complaining about a Mazda 6 being able to smoke the tires. Consider me unsubscribed.

      I’m looking to buy a new car and I’ve been really interested in this car. Is it a Mazda 6 sport? Or what specific trim is this?

      Mazda improved the exterior look of the 6. It looks less like a Camaro with 4 doors and more like a sedan, which is what a sedan should look like. Yet, it still looks stylish.

      Apathetic shifting. I drive just like that too. It is a little hard on the tranny when I slam it into to reverse while I'm doing 90mph down the intersteak.

      thanks for the review, although I am from the EU and we don't have the turbo charged option, it still feels very good imo. On the other hand I want this as a family car, so I won't be tearing the asphalt off the road with it anyway. What we get however is the estate version of this ;) buying this next week, Cheers mate

      I have this same engine, (sans turbo), in a 2019 Mazda 3. Will I gain horsepower using 93?

      Nope, that only applies to the turbo engine, and even then apparently only in some markets.

      Mazda needs to bring the all-wheel-drive from the new Mazda 3 over to the Mazda 6 to alleviate the issue mentioned in the video about spinning the tires off the line because of all that torque.

      I have had a 2018 Mazda6 GT since fall, and I feel that the sound levels are fantastic for this price point. My advice, get the GT Reserve. I purchased the GT, and that's my only regret with this car...., wish I paid a little more for the Reserve.

      3:26 looks so odd with so much dead space in the center stack. the buttons are just buried where his hands are .
      This looks like a hard points restricted design.

      Mazda doesn't have a luxury brand so they can put the best in the Mazda 6. The other 3 have luxury brands Lexus, Infiniti, Acura. So they have to save the best for their luxury brands, Mazda doesn't have that problem.

      I like looking at the undercarriage of a car. It tells me a lot about the quality. Like what Mazda has done with all their cars.

      OMG,I just was handed the keys to this car yesterday and...wow! Color me impressed! This is my 3rd Mazda,but 1st Mazda 6. I still own the 08 CX-7 2.3turbo but it has seen better days. I had to replace the turbo on it when I bought used 6 years ago. My wife was impressed with it she wanted one. So,we bought her a '15 CX-9 3.7 V6 and again Mazda impressed me with it's biggest CUV model. Now,We weren't even really looking to get me a new car yet but my CX-7 is having issues again because of the high mileage. So,we decided to go for bust on the Mazda 6 2.5turbo Grand Touring trim. I've literally have only had this car in my possession 1 day and I'm all smiles. I can't wait to find it's fun spots after playing around with the sport mode and traction control. Thanks for the review to help clear some things up.

      I almost never comment on YouTube vids, but the sheer amount of binging I’ve been doing of your channel has finally motivated me. You are by far the best car reviewer/enthusiast/personality on YouTube. Sincere and well-informed, but perfectly leavened with a deadpan sense of humor. Excellent production values. Just superb.

      Great Video like always! I am actually pretty sold on the Honda Accord Sport 2.0T 6 Speed Manual, but I saw the Mazda 6 prototype for 2020! Do you have any information on the new Mazda 6? The prototype looks great!!!

      Something I am not aware of and you may be, is any after market software attachment available to alleviate your disgust with the manner in which this Mazda operates? Hmm...could be a great enhancement.

      I have a 2011 Mazda 6 3.7L V6, and I would NOT want this newer version. Many reasons why, but my car has everything I want and doesn't have a bunch of crap that I don't want. Here's a list of why I like my older V6 Mazda: 272hp, 269lb.-ft. torque, 3.7L Ford cyclone V6 (yes Ford, same one in 09-13 V6 mustangs too)naturally aspirated engine, redline is 6,500 but you can push past to 7,500 before you start throwing rods, it will not early shift in automatic or manual mode, no silly-ass paddle shifters, manual mode you use the shifter, no leather seats thank you, no nanny features like adaptive cruise, automatic braking, lane departure warning, etc., no touch screen backup camera car version of an iPad contraption, only an lcd 1" tall, 6" wide screen, and 6cd w/ Bluetooth, has 1st gen radar-based blind spot monitoring, power mirrors, locks, windows, & driver's seat. I also way prefer the red gauges with blue electro-luminescent backdrop. It's much easier for me to see & the red doesn't affect my night vision whereas the new ones white color output will. Also I haven't replaced the stock ecu, which houses the electronic governor, that limits this car to 132mph. Yes I've had it there many times-Alaska has expansive long highways. And while most people look for a quick 0-60, I prefer a quicker 60-100 speed. When you gotta get moving quick, that's where your money's at. There is no lag in this car's acceleration, it's a constant rate all the way to about 120mph before that rate slows down. Another feature most don't think about but I do is that I tow 2,000lb. trailers with mine, my flatbed trailer with ramp that has my Ural sidecar motorcycle & sand bags on it as ballast (single axle trailer), & my 8ft. Aqua Lark speed boat w/ 40hp 2-stroke Yamaha outboard. It pulls the trailers like they're not even there. Just use manual shift & run rpm's up to about 3,000 before shifting. At highway speeds it's hardly noticeable & acceleration is still brisk. The other thing I love is having an actual hand brake, that I can hold the button down & control braking action in the rear wheels with my hand, not some shitty electronic button. Wintertime of 6 months means I make a lot of easy U-turns. The only downsides to this car are abysmal in city mileage (18 city, 27 highway on window sticker when new, but I rarely see 15/25, on a sidenote towing the 2,000lb. trailer plus 2 5 gallon gas cans, 200lbs. of emergency equipment plus donut & full size spare tires, myself, & 400lbs. of tools, clothes, bedding, water, food, cooler, air compressor, etc. for an around the state trip including through a blizzard in northern Denali National Park, I averaged 16mpg which is pretty good) you'll go through Michelin high performance tires in 40,000 miles, if you're lucky, & any major maintenance like water pump or timing chain (first was leaking, chain jumped teeth or stretched, VVT compensated till I could get to the repair shop) requires the engine to be removed completely from the car. This adds about 12 hours of labor to any job. Plans are to add a supercharger at some point, wipe or replace the factory ecu, change out to Flowmaster exhaust, adding heavier rear shocks to improve towing characteristics, & getting my inverter permanently installed & a higher output alternator for the car. Also have been trying to figure out where to put moose beams (bright as #%ck long distance headlights that spotlight a mile ahead of you so you can see moose that might jump in front of you), haven't been able to find a good spot that doesn't affect airflow over the car & isn't obviously bolted on the bumper.

      So the non-turbo engine sucks? I have a 2019 CX-5 GT with the "base 187 HP" engine and I love it. If it can keep up with traffic I'm a fan. I'm not going to pay 4K more the turbo. At least not now. I will in the future. Great review BTW.

      Regarding turning off the HUD. I don't know if its an undocumented feature but if you set your seat position to your remote (Press set, then hold unlock on fob) it does remember your HUD settings. I have a CX-5 that does this and given the same infotainment and seats its likely this does it as well. Its a nice way to control per-user hud features. Might want to give that a try.
