Used Car: 2013 Mazda Mazda6 Review

Review Last Updated: 4/16/15

While some competitors have better reliability ratings and fuel economy, the 2013 Mazda6 pleased test drivers with its athletic handling.

The 2013 Mazda Mazda6 is ranked:

The 2013 Mazda Mazda6 has a standard four-cylinder engine and an available V6. A manual transmission is standard, and an automatic is available. Reviewers liked the manual transmission’s precise throws. Though most test drivers agreed that the base engine is adequate, they preferred the extra power from the V6. When equipped with the base engine, the 2013 Mazda6 gets 21/30 mpg city/highway, which is not good for the class. Auto critics liked the Mazda6’s precise steering, powerful brakes and lively handling, which they said make it particularly fun to drive. 

Most reviewers said the 2013 Mazda6 has a roomy and comfortable cabin. While other cars in the class have standard features like Bluetooth and rearview cameras, the Mazda6 has a short list of standard tech features, including an auxiliary input jack and a CD player. Optional features when it was new include leather upholstery, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, blind spot monitoring, navigation, satellite radio, a rearview camera and Bluetooth. However, a USB port isn’t available at all.

Other Cars to Consider

Like the Mazda6, reviewers said the 2013 Nissan Altima offers athletic handling. The Altima also has good fuel economy and a long list of standard features.

Reviewers praised the 2013 Ford Fusion for its surprisingly athletic performance. The Fusion is available with all-wheel drive, and critics praised its comfortable seating.
