2006 Mazda Mazdaspeed Mazda6 Grand Touring 4dr Sport Sedan AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

The acceleration on wet roads is spectacular. With that, the braking ability inspires confidence. Ride is firm but not fatiguing, and the handling is comfortable in all but the tightest turns. DSC is unaggressive and only comes on with major weight shifts. Clutch takes some getting used to, but even in urban driving with hills it is easy to learn. Excellent car for road trips - driver and passengers arrive relaxed. Shifts are a bit heavy, but still smooth. Can outrun the majority of cars on the road - especially in bad weather.

Favorite Features

Torque. Understated looks. Incredible braking ability. Very comfortable ride on rough pavement. Cabin visibility is excellent. You feel in total control while driving.

Suggested Improvements

Interior looks cheap for a car in this price range. HID headlights could be brighter. Suspension is a little too soft in hard cornering. Stereo is merely adequate. Heavy! (both good and bad).
