2009 Mazda 6i: Special?

May 18, 2009

There's nothing really wrong with our Mazda 6i Grand Touring. Still, I'm amazed how many people get upset by statements like "It's just OK" or when we imply that the new Mazda 6 is a little more like a Camry than the previous version. Owners of the new Mazda 6 no doubt feel they have something special. I think I know why they feel this way

Mazda clearly spent a lot of time getting the 6's interior just right. It's an area that's often overlooked but likely more important than any other aspect of the car. The interior of the car is where you spend ALL your time.


New Mazda 6 owners likely feel their car is special because of the chrome trim, the glowing white needles and blue/red backgrounds and the nicely ingetrated steering wheel mounted controls that always seem to be right where you need them. Mazda 6 owners feel thier car is special because from the inside looking out, it is.
