2006 Mazda Mazdaspeed Mazda6 Grand Touring 4dr Sport Sedan AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
This is the closest to a German handling sport sedan that Mazda has ever created. It may look like a "Plain Jane", but this girl likes to party.
The car's suspension is special. The term "riding on rails" has been so overused, but it truly fits. With the sport tuned suspension and automatic sensing traction controlled AWD, you can't believe how stable it is in the turns.
There should be an optional to upgrade to 3" exhaust pipes to give the car a bit more growl and some attitude. Also, the gearing pattern could be improved to hit 0-60 in 5.6, by expanding 1st & 2nd gear.
