Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Mazda 6 is a breakout among mid-sizers that can lack flair and fun.

Pros
Beautiful exterior
Fun to drive
Sharp handling
Standard active safety features
Impressive turbo-4

Cons

Can be expensive in top trims

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
Suave interior and exterior design
Comfortable and supportive front seats
Entertaining handling

Cons

For the third time in five model years, the Mazda 6 receives a makeover for 2018. Its most obvious updates include subtly evolved exterior styling, a refreshed interior, and an additional engine option. The 6's new turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder—which slots above the standard non-turbo 2.5-liter four—adopts cylinder deactivation and adds slightly more horsepower and torque. While these changes are significant, Mazda took things a step further by retuning the chassis and drastically reducing interior noise levels. The lineup also welcomes a new Grand Touring Reserve trim and a top-of-the-line Signature model. The latter has rich leather, real wood trim, and a long list of desirable standard features. The Mazda 6 will also finally add a diesel engine and all-wheel drive to its roster before the end of the year. While complete details haven't been released, we're confident the diesel-powered version will feature the same 2.2-liter four-cylinder found on the Mazda CX-5, which makes 168 horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque. Likewise, we expect the new engine will only be available on the top-of-the-line Signature model.
