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
