It is time once again for our network to pump out gift guides for the holiday season, prodding you to buy and consume like all the other sheeple. However, no one made a gift guide for us, the people who write Jalopnik. Thankfully, SpeedSource’s auction has us covered. The diesel Mazda6 is for sale, and we’re still…
Today, we got the official look and specs of the new 2018 Mazda6, which will come with a torquey turbocharged engine. Awesome! What was not so awesome was the fact that the turbocharged version will not come with a manual option. Goddammit, you guys!
The Mazda6 never needed much. It looked awesome, was a lot of fun to drive and even came with a manual gearbox. It only ever really lacked one thing: power. Now the 2018 Mazda6 is here with the turbocharged 2.5-liter turbo engine from the CX-9, and it may just be the best front-drive midsize sedan on the market now.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
The beloved Mazda6, beautiful and elegantly styled as it is, needed a little more power in its currently generation. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder just didn’t give the car enough grunt. Now, it seems like Mazda’s flagship sedan will finally get some extra love in the form of a turbocharged engine.
This summer I joined my German friends Andreas and Josi on a road trip to a wedding in Romania. I knew little about the country, and even less about the bride and groom, but that didn’t matter. I was about to drive some of the greatest roads on earth in one of the Jalop-est new cars I could get my hands on: an…
The Tokyo Motor Show hits keep coming from Mazda. I seem to be in the minority when it comes to liking the Mazda Kai Concept hatchback, but I think this one will be way more of a crowd pleaser. This is the Mazda Vision Coupe Concept, and we’ll forgive it for not really being a coupe because it looks so damn good.
Mazda announced a recall of around 60,000 Mazda 6 sedans in the U.S. and Canada, The Detroit News reports. Improper welding may cause a wire shortage that will disable power steering. Debris left during the welding process can cause wires to rub together, potentially disabling the airbag.
The Mazda6 is a very nicely made car that handles extremely well for when you need a dash of sportiness in your midsize sedan experience. It falls down as a true enthusiast car because it’s not even remotely quick. If you are looking for a front-drive four-door and some real zip, go check out a Buick Regal GS instead.
Remember when you were young and your dog ran away, and you always hoped it would come back while knowing deep down Rocko was actually dead? That’s how a lot of people feel about a new Mazdaspeed3 or Speed6, which Mazda has no plans to bring back for the current generation of either car.
The Mazda6 is the best affordable midsize sedan in America for drivers. What do you need to know before you buy a Mazda6? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in the Ultimate Buyer’s Guide.
I drove a Mazda 6 wagon and a CX-5 crossover back to back with the same engine and same gearbox. It made me realize that Mazda actually needs to make a Subaru Outback. Why? Because it’d be a hit in America. That’s why.
We all desperately want Mazda to make the sports cars of our dreams. We've got one and we're constantly pining for another. But let's not forget that when Mazda was cranking out turbocharged RX-7s, it was also on the brink of yet another disaster, and among the things that saved them was making damn good cars for the…
Mazda has a spider problem and it has nothing to do with which Fiat brand will get a version of the new Miata. This concerns the previous generation Mazda 6 and the spiders that may still be living in its fuel tank, in a repeat of one of the rare humorous recalls.
December 3, 2013 (IRVINE, Calif.) — There have always been rivalries: Yankees versus Red Sox. Beta versus VHS. Coke versus Pepsi. Tom versus Jerry. In the automotive retail world, that rivalry is Factory Guys versus Dealers.
Remember when the Mazda6 Diesel was announced at the LA Show last year and we all popped an oil burning boner for the zoom-zoom sedan's arrival in the US this fall? Yeah... It just got delayed until 2014. Damn. I wanted one for Christmas.
LONDON, August 20, 2013. Mazda UK is renewing its annual partnership with Britain's fastest race track for the ninth year in a row, supplying a trio of cars to Thruxton Racing Circuit for use during the venue's popular 'Experience Days'.
