I test drove a 2015 Mazda6 recently, and almost everything you have read about this car is true. The exterior of the car makes this one of the best-looking cars on the road, the interior feels refined and driver-centric, and the car drives great... for the most part. The reviews that have cited the automatic transmission's reluctance to downshift in an effort to save fuel are correct; the 6 does this more willingly than, say, a Toyota Camry, but for a car that should be all about zoom-zoom, this one falls a bit short of that sporty aspiration. Probably the biggest disappointment for me is how poorly optioned this car is. I am probably in the minority, but I love driving manual, and the list of options that are exclusive to the auto-equipped Mazda 6 is a long one. Changing your own gears in the new Mazda 6 means sacrificing a sunroof, an upgraded stereo, heated seats, and other options. Again, for a company marketing itself to people who like a little entertainment from their cars, they seem to be forgetting enthusiasts like myself. About $2000 more will buy you a new VW GLI, which can be had with a manual and all of the options listed above. Don't misunderstand me, this is a very good car. But, as bad as the automatic is, you should opt for the manual (Mazda has a long history of making fantastic manual transmissions, like the Miata and the MazdaSpeed3), and given the lack of options for the manual, I will be looking elsewhere.

Love, Love, Love this car!!!!!!! I wanted this car car the first time I saw it! Absolutely beautiful, graceful styling. Not even in the same class as the competition! When this car is parked next to an Accord, Camry and even an Altima it looks like it is light years ahead!! From the elegant styling, to the fantastic way it drives, the Mazda6 should be on everyone's short list! Again, love, love love this car!!!!!!!
