2009 Mazda Mazda6 i Grand Touring 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5A)
Exterior design is very attractive. Excellent handling, good pickup from the 4cyl engine. Could be better on the fuel economy but not too bad. Ride is well controlled but it can be a bit busy.
Decent room inside, good design to the dash board. Interior quality is a mixed bag. Some parts of the dash and doors are very high end
but other parts are cheap feeling. Leather quality is decent, if a little stiff feeling, but it smells good though. Xenon lighting is excellent. I would suggest this car for those who like spirited driving, if you drive it softly it may leave you a bit cold.
Handling is best in class. Great in the snow. Decently Comfortable, the fit and finish overall is good. Good safety features and excellent reliability potential. Looks expensive in the upper trim models. Decently quiet on the highway. Decent power.
Competitors get better fuel economy. The cheap parts of the interior really take away from the overall ambiance, Mazda usually does better.
