Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Mazda 6 is a stylish, good handling sedan that finally has the underhood muscle to match.

Pros
Pretty to look at
Turbo power to match
Decent value
Lots of standard safety gear
Good balance between ride and handling

Cons
Turbo-4 too little, too late?
Awful infotainment system
New Signature trim doesn’t meet expectations
Could be more fuel-efficient

The Mazda 6 receives a variety of updates for 2018. The most significant is the revised interior, which is quieter and features a new dashboard design and higher-quality cabin materials. An available turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder joins the lineup, while the base 2.5-liter engine now has cylinder deactivation technology to improve fuel economy.

PROS
Suave interior and exterior design
Class-competitive fuel economy from turbo engine
Entertaining handling

CONS
All-wheel drive is not available
No hybrid model

PROS
Ride quality is smooth and comfortable on bumpy roads
Cabin is well-isolated from noise
Offers more features for the money compared to German alternatives

CONS
Optional Remote Touch infotainment system is distracting to use
All-wheel drive limited to outdated six-speed transmission
Handling capabilities do little to create driver excitement

By:

Sluggish, indecisive eight-speed automatic
Lack of steering feedback and athleticism
Frustrating Remote Touch controller
Some cheap-looking interior trim
Large ledge between trunk floor and folded backseat

Statement-making styling,
on-point chassis setup,
standard driver assists.
