Hot hatch levels of performance in sedan
By Will Levine on


2004 Mazda 6 s 4dr Sports Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


This car is amazing. Sure, some of the car's interior feels cheap, and the comfort levels could be better, but remember this car was cheaper than all its rivals, yet drove even better. Performance is fantastic from the 220 bhp 3.0 V6 engine, sometimes you don't realize exactly how fast you're going. A complaint would be that the manual mode is jerky and dim-witted, and doesn't auto blip on the down shifts. Both down shifts and up shifts aren't instantaneous. Fuel economy is atrocious. Granted, I drive in a "spirited" manner, but i only average 17.4 mpg. I recommend the 4 cylinder model, that car weighs less, gets better mpg, and probably handles better. In short, it's great, buy it.

Best Features

Engine noise, bolstered seats, climate control, 3.0 V6, practicality and large trunk

Worst Features

Less-cheap interior, more intelligent tiptronic automatic, and better fuel economy.
