The 2016 Mazda 6 comes with a 2.5 liter four-cylinder engine that gets you 184 horsepower and 185 pound feet torque. The Touring and Sport model are matched to the six- speed automatic or the manual transmission.
The automatic Mazda 6 can go up till 60 mph in only 7.6 seconds; this is really a quick time for the mid size sedan with four cylinder engine.
What You Will See
All the midsize sedans are making a transition from the plain Jane to a stylish and sleek one. The Mazda 6 has been one of the most successful out of these, with voluptuous bends and a good looking front. The 4 door feature looks sporty without it seeming overdone. Mazda definitely did not want this model to be outdated any time soon.
Apart from this the exterior features that really stand out are the haunches over the rear wheels, muscular haunches, the rearward windshield, and the long hood. The grille is the retouched version of the previous models, and the car is treated to brilliant LED headlights that look like it is meant for 2016.
The standard safety features for the 2016 Mazda 6 are inclusive of head restraints, side airbags full length, front seat air bags, stability control and traction, and the antilock brakes.
Another feature which is standard in all the models except the Sport includes the automatic emergency accident notification and the rear view camera. The optional features are the parking sensors. Plus the Touring models have cross traffic rear monitoring, and blind spot monitoring.
In the cars that are automatic equipped you can use remote locking through the smart phone app: Mazda Mobile Start.
Interior and Special Features
The vehicle comes with spacious leg room in the front and the back. There is plenty head room as well, even for people who are taller than 6 feet, even though sedan has a sloping roof line in the back which make the rear window give a cramped vibe. That being said, the car has good enough luggage space. The design of the car is strategic in offering 14.8 cubic feet of space. Generally the 6's interior design is functional and neat. The polished aluminum trim accents the cabin nicely; to top that off there is leather upholstery in the Grand Touring model that comes with complementing stitches. The quality of the materials and the finish and fit are some of the best in the category.
The previous Mazda 6 had a disappointing touch screen interface with its small screen, substandard map and the prolonged glitches when working with Apple gadgets.
Fuel Economy to Die For
Mazda 6's fuel economy is very impressive. It stands at 31 mpg (38 highway/26 city) for the 29 mpg combined and the automatic transmission car. With the optional i-Eloop feature, fuel economy has easily risen to a surprising 32 mpg.
