Road Test

The Mazda6 is a good looking car, sporty and curved available in saloon, hatchback or estate. Aimed mainly at the company car buyer but it suits private family motorists just as well. Well-equipped and well-finished it also has a good name for reliability. Comfortable for driving company motorway miles, seats are supportive and the driving position is good. Residual values are strong for a fleet car, and its reliability and quality make it a good investment. Engines have been improved to provide greater efficiency except for a new 2.0-litre 155bhp direct petrol injection which has replaced the previous 2.0-litre. Priced to undercut the likes of Passat and A4, the 6 makes an interesting and entertaining alternative to a Mondeo or Vectra without taking too many risks. Quality, reliable and affordable but the market for these bigger cars is shrinking as buyers opt for more compact, efficient models.
