Beautiful, fun to drive

2010 Mazda 6 i Touring Plus 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 5A)
Purchased a couple of weeks ago. Got the solid black; exterior styling most attractive on the road, kudos to the designers. Was appealing that the car, though selling well, is somewhat rare compared to the other brands, and very eye catching. The touches in the Touring Plus trim line with the leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear shift really set off the inside. Interior fit and finish is excellent, very high quality look and feel. Got the 4-cyl to get better gas mileage (got 29 MPG on first tank of mostly highway), but the engine they're using is not particularly well engineered when compared to the performance of my older model 4-cyl Camry.
Exterior styling very stunning. Interior feel is of high quality, comparable to luxury car brands.
4-cyl engine a bit sluggish, struggles to smoothly accelerate (at least compared to my 4-cyl Camry), loses speed up inclines unless you really lean on the pedal. Also, it's unbelievable that the car's door locks are completely manual and don't lock when you put it in gear or reach a certain speed.
