2007 Mazda Mazda6 Review

By U.S. News Best Cars Staff May 4, 2008

The Mazda6 delivers sporty handling dynamics and a sleek, stylish exterior, but can't match the off-the-line pickup or interior spaciousness of others in its class.

Reviewers find the 2007 Mazda6 is a sporty and stylish alternative to its somewhat conservative class-leading competition. AutoWeek says, "The 6 offers all the practicality of the cars it competes against, all the comfort, too, and still manages to feel like a sporty little sports sedan at the same time." Kelley Blue Book writes, "If you need the practicality of a midsize sedan, but you'd really like the driving involvement and performance characteristics of something with more personality, the Mazda6 makes for the perfect compromise." While it's "not a class leader in any respect," admits Newsday, "the 6 plays in the same tough ballpark and, at the very least, it offers an alternative to its ubiquitous competitors."

According to Consumer Guide, the Mazda6 is "one of the sportiest midsize cars and competitively priced." The Detroit Free Press calls it "practical, comfortable and affordable," while Motor Trend claims, "The Mazda6 delivers a lot of sporty car for the money, especially when compared with Japanese rivals that usually cost more when equally equipped." The Mazda6, available as a sedan or hatchback, offers "i" (four cylinder) and "s" (V6) versions. IntelliChoice value ratings for "i" series models generally range from "Worse Than Average" to "Average," while ratings for "s" series models generally range from "Poor" to "Worse Than Average" for their predicted five-year cost of ownership compared to other vehicles in their class.

The "i" series is available with Sport, Sport VE, Touring and Grand Touring trim. The "s" series is available with Sport VE, Touring and Grand Touring trim.
