2006 Mazda Mazdaspeed Mazda6 Sport 4dr Sport Sedan AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
The car has tons of bottom end/mid-range power but lacks oomph above 5500 rpm. That's the trade off you get with a turbocharged vehicle, it's one or the other. The performance and handling is very similar to the 350Z I had, except it's faster off the corners due to the AWD. The trade off there is it's not as much fun as a RWD car. Very comfortable and well designed on the inside.
Turbo power and 4 cylinder gas mileage. AWD to power out of corners safely. Excellent interior design and materials for the price. Sporty but not garish looks.
FRONT MOUNTED INTERCOOLER. More AWD torque-split to the rear. Standard aux audio input/MP3 capability.
