2019 Mazda6 Is A Quality Saloon That Will Make You Feel Special

Mazda has been improving the 6 family sedan steadily over the years, and the latest 2019 model is seen as one of the best propositions in the mid-sized class.

Its smart and clean design language makes the Mazda6 stand out from the crowd without being too flashy, while the interior will put to shame much more expensive and premium rivals, especially if you go for one of the range-topping models like the one featured in this review.

The redesigned dashboard is finished with plush materials and clever design details that create a special atmosphere. The seats are comfortable and supportive front and rear, while the eight-inch infotainment system is easy to use. However, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are optional.

The engine range consists of three petrol options in the UK, ranging from 143hp to 191hp on the top-spec 2.5-liter Skyactiv-G, and two diesels with 148hp and 181hp. A six-speed manual is offered as standard, with an automatic being optional.

On the road, the 2019 Mazda6 proves to be comfortable and quiet enough over longer journeys, with the six-speed manual transmission offering the precise mechanical feel Mazdas are known for. The top-spec diesel engine remains the pick of the range for the UK, as it offers plenty of poke and refinement along with impressive fuel efficiency.

Is the 2019 Mazda6 the unsung hero of the mid-size saloon class? It sure sounds like it – but you can learn all about it by watching the video that follows.

    Reviewers love Mazda. Buyers don’t.

      Really? Why? I need to know.

      [edit] I’m very serious by the way, I’ve been weighing up surprising my fiancee with a Mazda; she likes them.

        Nice interiors in high end trim, but not very good interiors in moderate trim. Also, tend to be noisy. Generally feels cheap at moderate trim levels. Price goes up quickly when going up trim. Not a great reputation for reliability (deserved or not).

        They do pretty well otherwise and that’s why reviewers like them. If you like it and the price is right, go for it.

        Please do buy! Not sure where his information comes from, but not at all my experience . Reliability is second to none, drives like nothing else in its segment, looks like a class above than it actually competes in, drives/handles reminiscent of a old 3 series. Definitely get the top end model, she will feel like a boss! Just a classy sedan… Promise you’ll get some whenever you want! ;))
        Get the turbo if you can….

          “Definitely get the top end model,”

          You’re agreeing with my summary.

          • Danny Boy

            Referencing your original post, “Reviews love Mazda, buyers don’t”!

    • Adam

      Considering Mazda is the second biggest seller in Australia, second to Toyota, I believe buyers love them, at least they do in this country.

    • NLVXXI

      Australian buyers love Mazdas, they’re everywhere you look on the roads. In the US you hardly ever see them at all.

  • Bash

    Will feel more special with the petrol engine tho.
