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.
