2007 Mazda 6 s Touring 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


The 6 is a sharp looking little car. Get behind the wheel and the V6 gets you up and moving promptly. Throttle response is quick, though if pressed too hard the engine is prone to rev hard in search of power. The 6 speed auto is especially fun in manual mode, but the close ratios make shifting a busy job. Fuel economy does not appear to reap the benefits of 6 gears, no matter who is shifting. Heading down the road/highway, however, subtle hints creep in that this is not the "touring" car its package advertises. Road noise is fairly high and presents a stiff challenge to the meager standard stereo. The ride, while absolutely stable, is not necessarily smooth and is tiresome on extended trips.

Best Features

The exterior look. Much more appealing than competitive designs from Honda, Toyota, and Nissan. The automatic transmission with manual mode. The V6 engine, much better performance overall as compared to I4.

Worst Features

Alter transmission ratios to improve fuel economy and prevent/reduce overreving engine. Improve quality of materials used on interior surfaces. Increase sound insulation. Upgrade speakers in base sound system.
