Review

As we say goodbye to our Mazda6 long-termer, here's a look at some of the comments it received during its year-long test:

"Heated front seats, TomTom satellite navigation and reversing camera with steering guide as well as proximity sensors are all standard features."
Simon Harris

"According to the Fleet News running cost tables, the addition of navigation results in a £150 uplift in value at four years/80,000 miles, which is only a quarter of the cost of adding navigation."
Simon Harris

“While the Mazda6 is packed with safety technology – rear vehicle monitoring and lane departure warning are also options on our test car – it is missing one much-loved piece of technology: digital radio.”
Simon Harris

"The Mazda6's automatic brake holding function is activated when sensors detect an incline of 2° or greater. I have made
a few concerted attempts at junctions where the car is facing uphill, and can verify that it
does work."
Simon Harris


“Quality has discernibly improved (over the previous model), switches and buttons are more tactile; in short, everything above knee level is sleek and very impressive."
Stephen Briers

“Regardless of my driving style, the Mazda6 struggles to hit the low 50mpgs; its natural level seems to be 47-48mpg, substantially below the official figure of 67.3mpg."
Stephen Briers

"Mazda has done an outstanding job of bringing its Takeri concept into production. It is a great-looking car from every angle and has real road presence."
Luke Neal
