The Mazda6 provides a sporty alternative to the conventional humdrum midsized sedan. A coupe-like silhouette stands out with eye-catching looks. You probably won't be bored driving the car, either. Quick, responsive steering contributes to agile handling.
But the 6 isn't all about flash. Fuel economy is class-leading at 32 mpg overall thanks to the automaker's SkyActiv suite of fuel-saving engine and weight-reduction technologies. That's better than many small sedans. Acceleration doesn't suffer for fuel economy, with the 6 returning slightly-above average figures.
