The Mazda 6 is arguably the most handsome model in their impressive range with styling that marries Japanese solidity with European finesse. Beauty is not just skin deep though as there are 480 litres of space in the boot which can easily be extended by folding the split rear seats. Space in the rear is commodious too with decent leg and head room for occupants. The cabin is an equally pleasant place to be with lots of soft touch plastics and high-quality materials on display. Standard equipment is generous too with dual-zone climate control, parking sensors and cruise control as standard. Mazda are one of the few brands that continue to be firmly committed to petrol power and the 2.0 litre SkyActive G is a very effective naturally aspirated engine.
