The Mazda6 is a plucky midsize sedan that puts the power where you need it in city driving conditions. It has been praised for its elegant design, and also for the Skyactiv technology that places an emphasis on efficient performance. When equipped with the i-ELOOP regenerative engine braking system, a Mazda6 can return 28 mpg city and 40 mpg highway.
The Mazda6 is now mentioned in the same breath at the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. And while it's unlikely to take surpass the old guard in sales numbers, this new Mazda6 is good enough to threaten status quo buying decision in the midsize segment.
