2016 Mazda Mazda6 i Grand Touring

Ain’t No Rental Car. A 4-door city sedan.

The 2016 Mazda Mazda6 i Grand Touring is one of GAYOT's Top 10 Family Sedans

The 2016 Mazda6 i Grand Touring midsize sedan brings Mazda’s Kodo design aesthetic and emphasis on subjective user experiences to the hotly competitive and often crushingly bland world of family sedans. A spacious and well-equipped sedan, the Mazda6 employs an Atkinson-cycle 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine paired with a 6-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual transmission. Both transmission choices offer great fuel economy for a non-hybrid, with the automatic Mazda6 i Grand Touring achieving 28 mpg city/ 40 highway. Few sedan buyers opt to shift gears for themselves these days, which is a shame considering the amount of engineering effort that goes into a Mazda stick-shift. This is the company that makes the Miata, after all.

The 2016 Mazda6 is well equipped for its price point, and the interior is now comparable in feel to that of a Lexus or Acura and seems way ahead of what you’d find in a typical midsize car. Grand Touring models come with a 7” touchscreen with rearview camera. Active safety features including forward collision warning and lane departure warning are also available. The Mazda6 received a Top Safety Pick + rating from the IIHS.

Warranty/Service: 36 month/36,000 mile "bumper-to-bumper", 60 month/60,000 mile powertrain warranty
