2014 Mazda Mazda6 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
2014 liquid silver iTouring with auto.
Replaces 2006 Cadillac CTS and 2010 Mazda3 sedan. Love it so far.
Looked at 4 cars total (Camry, Altima, Sonata, and Mazda6) and for us the M6 beat out the rest, hands down.
Of course, it's a personal tastes thing, but I think the M6 was top line for both exterior and interior looks.
Not quite as snappy as the old M3 6-speed was, but it is bigger and heavier with, basically, same engine.
Still, it'll kick you back in the seat just fine.
This is still first impression stuff since car barely has 100 miles on it, so we'll see how things are 6-months down the road.
Still, don't think you could go wrong with this car.
Looks and finishes, inside and out.
Great price...looks way classier than it costs.
Acceleration, handling, responsiveness.
19" wheels on iTouring.
Being critical, just to be critical:
Do away with the "leatherette".
Make it either cloth or leather.
Express window switch for passenger.
Front seats an inch wider (they're fine as is, but another inch would be better.)
