2014 Mazda 6 i Touring 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


Have a 2004 6i auto with 120K, and replaced a 2012 Golf 2.5 with the 2014 6. Very happy so far. No issues. Lots of good cars out there, so small things make big differences to us, like the shielded trunk hinges, covered cup holders in the console, and steering wheel controls. Controls are well designed and easy to use. Interior storage could be better: compared to the 04 6i, the dash pop up is gone, the door storage holds less, and the console loses the dual level storage. For us, the garage door opener sits in the dash cubbie, the book on CD goes in the passenger door cubbie, and the charging phone sits in the top of the console cubbie. That doesn't work in the 2014.

Best Features

Driving experience, styling. Driving position and sight lines. Covered cup holders in the center console. Power outlets. Shielded trunk hinges. Steering wheel controls. Easy to read gauges and switches that are large enough to find, identify and actuate without hunting. Backup camera. AC outlet position is easy to point at the body (despite what CR says).

Worst Features

More useful interior storage. An actual coolant temp gauge vice the blue (cold)/red (overtemp) lights. More dash instrument lighting intensity via the rheostat. Offer cloth seats in the Touring trim. Exterior proximity lock/unlock option.
