It’s a shame that the Mazda 6 has quite for some time now been unable to garner any meaningful attention. For starters, the 6 is one of the segment’s best in terms of almost every aspect be it interior appointment, engine efficiency, exterior and interior design, and style, but either of these features seem to have tilted the competition to its advantage.

2017 Mazda 6 exterior, side view, alloy wheels

One of our favorite quality of the 6 is its intricate mix of performance and fuel consumption. Not many vehicles can afford to offer both at the same time without jeopardizing one of them. In combined driving, the 6 can achieve 32 mpg partly due to the available i-Eloop system. And even in its absence, the 6 still manages to get 31 mpg which places it among the best in terms of fuel efficiency in its segment.

And whether you are carving through city traffic or getting up to highway speeds, the 6 offers an impressive acceleration. Throw in a relatively nimble handling, and a precise steering and you get yourself a fun driving experience regardless of whether you are circling highway on a ramp or you are on the occasional back road.

Although the new 2017 Mazda 6 undoubtedly makes driving much fun even for newbie drivers, there are minor faults that we find imperative to highlight. They include a firm ride quality and lack of engine upgrades. Minor they may seem, but for those who can’t live with that, some of its alternatives include the 2017 Honda Accord and Nissan Altima. They are solid choices that offer a comfortable driving experience, and superior fuel consumption.
