2006 Mazda Mazdaspeed Mazda6 Sport 4dr Sport Sedan AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I love "Sleepers". Cars that aren't flashy but are fast. People see this car and think it's a family sedan. So sorry Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Acura etc. I guess your "Ultimate Driving Machine" wasn't so ultimate after all. I was looking at a lot of different vehicles before I decided that this was the one I wanted in my garage. G35 sedan with a 6MT was a little too big and heavy for my tastes. EVO and STi are great performers but hardly subtle with their huge wings. Like Goldilocks said, this one is just right.
This motor is very nice under boost. Understated looks.
A little more low end torque off of boost. More tire.
