2006 Mazda Mazdaspeed 6 Sport 4dr Sport Sedan AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


The car has tons of bottom end/mid-range power but lacks oomph above 5500 rpm. That's the trade off you get with a turbocharged vehicle, it's one or the other. The performance and handling is very similar to the 350Z I had, except it's faster off the corners due to the AWD. The trade off there is it's not as much fun as a RWD car. Very comfortable and well designed on the inside.

Best Features

Turbo power and 4 cylinder gas mileage. AWD to power out of corners safely. Excellent interior design and materials for the price. Sporty but not garish looks.

Worst Features

FRONT MOUNTED INTERCOOLER. More AWD torque-split to the rear. Standard aux audio input/MP3 capability.
