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.
