Mazda6 review

In a crowded, competitive class, the Mazda6 often gets overlooked by people shopping for a midsized sedan. But with a 2014 redesign, it makes a strong case for the spotlight by blending eye-catching, coupelike styling, a sporty driving character, and excellent fuel efficiency.

The Mazda6’s 184-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine delivers a frugal 32 mpg overall and a diesel-like 44 mpg on the highway. That’s the best we’ve measured in a conventional midsized sedan, edging out the four-cylinder Nissan Altima (31 mpg) and Honda Accord (30) as well as many compact and subcompact cars.

The key is Mazda’s suite of Skyactiv technologies, including direct fuel injection and a higher compression ratio. An optional diesel engine arrives later this year, for another fuel-efficient choice.
