2006 Mazda MAZDA6 s Grand Sport 4dr Hatchback (3.0L 6cyl 5M)
Significant upgrades from last year make this car at this trim level a real sleeper in the midsize class. High revving V-6 with 5 speed MTX makes the car come alive. The 18" Pirellis combined w/ Mazda's sophisticated suspension result in a very tight handling package that gives surprising comfort, even on PA's third world roads. Tough choice between this car & Acura's TSX, but it costs $$$$ less, feels faster & runs on regular gas.
V-6 with MTX. 18" wheel & high performance tire package. Very comfortable & supportive seats. HID headlights. Build quality feels really good.
A few more ponies. Make SAT radio standard. Display center needs more contrast.
