2014 Mazda Mazda6 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
If you are looking at cars in this class, you must drive the 6 before deciding. It took over three months and 2 to 3 test drives on almost everything in this class, then the 2014 6's came in and it was end of story for all the others. This car is fun!!! The others are nice, Accord Sport is the only thing close, but you won't be driving what everyone else is driving with the 6. The red color is awesome, the silver was also very nice. Gas mileage is great 28mpg average so far with mostly city driving. I feel that I bought a luxury sports car at $15 to $20 thousand less than the luxury brands. Love the leatherette seat very comfortable and I'm 6'3", wife is 5'4" and also is very comfortable.
Blue tooth works great. I love the pandora and HD radio feature. The red is getting lots of looks. The backup screen is great and the back up sensor that senses cars coming from the side has already saved me in the parking lot. I have the touring without the tech package. The non-bose radio and speaker system is more than adequate. I just love driving this car.
Placement of the clock is placed lower than I would like. It is down by the AC and heat controls. It should be up on the screen by the dash. As mentioned before lighted lock controls would be nice.
