2013 Mazda MAZDA6 I Touring

2013 Mazda MAZDA6 Review

(0 Stars)  Replaced, but still a good choice.

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

New For 2013
The only change is that eighteen-inch wheels become standard on i Touring Plus and i Grand Touring models.
Overview
The Mazda 6 is still on sale for 2013, but buyer beware: an all-new 2014 model that is more attractive and more fuel-efficient debuted in early 2013. That means supplies of the 2013 car are fairly limited, as Mazda has stopped producing the 2013 6 at a joint-venture factory in Michigan. Despite all that, the 2013 Mazda 6 remains a very good mid-size sedan. With an imposing presence and upscale looks, the 6’s exterior is as handsome as it is conservative—especially when viewed next to some of this segment’s more flashy entries. Inside, the 6 is highly functional. Options include a blind-spot monitoring system, touch-screen navigation, push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, and a backup camera. The spacious rear seats split and fold, giving access to a very large trunk. Under the hood is an optional V-6 engine that’s the biggest in its class. Originally seen in the CX-9 crossover, the 3.7-liter V-6 brutalizes the front wheels with 272 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque, and yet torque steer is commendably well controlled. In reality, the base 6i’s 2.5-liter four-cylinder is powerful enough for most drivers, even if its five-speed automatic transmission isn’t quite as refined as the V-6’s six-speed. The four-cylinder is also available with a six-speed manual, an homage to Mazda’s Zoom-Zoom mantra.
