2007 Mazda Mazdaspeed Mazda6 Grand Touring 4dr Sport Sedan AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
To compare the MS6 to the EVO or STI is to miss the whole design philosophy in creating this car. Mazda designers clearly stated that the MS6 is not a competition of the above rally inspired track cars but rather against the more refined legacy GT and Acura TL. With this in mind this car can be judged on its merits. The MS6 is a near perfect balance of speed, civility and understated elegance.
Six speed manual, broad power starting at 2500 rpm from the hitachi turbo minimizing turbo lag, sleeper profile. Keyless entry and heated mirrors.
With the limitations and compromises inherent in a performance sedan I do not really have complaints except the burning smell from the corrosion protectant that lasted for more than a thousand miles.
