2006 Mazda Mazda6 i Sport 4dr Hatchback (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

Review

The 2.3L 4 cylinder cars handle slightly better due to the reduced weight. The ergonomics of the hatch are unmatched in the sporty sedan market (even Saab dropped theirs). In addition to these features which put the Mazda 6 at the top of our list the car is a PZEV - partial ZERO emissions vehicle, meaning it pumps our 1/5th the pollution of similar cars. Also this car has a lot of Ford based domestic parts, including the new, larger, brakes from the heavier Fusion. Feel good about your ZOOM, ZOOM. It is not marketed as a car for flag waving greenies, but it is a car that feels good in more ways that just behind the wheel.

Favorite Features

Excellent handling, styling (looks better than anything BMW has done in years now), fun to drive, partial zero emissions, good fuel economy and the intelligent design of the 5th door. This is a 8.0 second SUV replacement that gets 30 MPG and goes through slaloms like a BMW M6.

Suggested Improvements

It is hard to come up with any. The price would certainly jump. As is, I don't see how they get this content in this car for the price. It is a bargain for what it does.
