If you can't afford a Jaguar
By Rod M. on


2010 Mazda 6 s Touring Plus 4dr Sedan (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


Lease expired on our beloved 2007 Mazda3 Touring. Checked out the 2010 3's and could not get past the homely grill. Test drove new Sonata and Camry. The Sonata is pretty and handles well, but the GLS feels like the economy car it is. The Camry (even in sportier SE trim) was not much fun to drive. The Fusion, Accord, Altima and Legacy styling do not move the pulse rate. If you put a leaping cat on the 6, it could be mistaken for a Jag. One car editor said it drove like a Jaguar XF. So what's the down side? The cloth seats are not that comfortable. The lumbar support does not hit me in the right place. Cheap Walmart seat cushions fixed that. Stereo is just okay. Mileage is mediocre.

Best Features

The blind sport monitoring is pure genius. I love the styling and Sangria Red color. You can't beat the silky smoothness of the V6. The steering has perfect feel and all of the controls have a Lexus-like upscale feel. It has limousine-like rear seat room compared to the Mazda3 & a huge trunk.

Worst Features

Make a deal with Buick to manufacture the seats. Put a little more effort into the stereo system. Other than that, the car is perfect; better than a Jag, really, when you factor in price, maintenance and reliability.
