The good, bad, and ugly, i.e. the truth after ~20k
By takumi1 on


2014 Mazda 6 i Sport 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)


Finally, an honest review of the good and the bad. Not sure why people leave such biased reviews - all cars have faults. I'd buy the same car again, but let's look at a few things to keep in mind when you test drive.
First the good. A beautiful car from any angle - the best in the segment.Terrific gas mileage. Great handling. Comfortable, with a very nice interior if you're not into lots of clutter. Fun to drive. Roomy. Good price. Now some hard truths. Mediocre acceleration from stop. Poor rear visibility. Poor infotainment system, badly positioned, with a laggy voice response system. Massive wind noise. USB difficult to get to Tiny cheap useless sun visors.

Best Features

Appearance. Cabin. Gas mileage. Better than other cars in it's class though far from perfect.

Worst Features

Cars have had windows for a hundred years and more - how could Mazda not know how to keep the wind out by 2014? Makes no sense. Change out the silly entertainment system with something better. Install some functional sun visors instead of those tiny economy flaps suspended from two screws. Add a larger arm rest (and take the USB) out of there and put it where it's useful)
