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'.
Let's hear it for the Mazda6 diesel race car! It scored a big victory for oil burners this weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, further cementing its general awesomeness.
SkyActiv is new and scary. Let MotorWeek's John Davis break it down!
Buying a midsize sedan is like buying a pair of men's loafers; lots of choices but few anyone would get excited about unless you're spending bank. There's the new Honda Accord, the perennially boring Toyota Camry, the nicely warrantied Hyundai Sonata, and the gorgeous Ford Fusion. It seems the Mazda6 was all forgotten.
Of all the cars racing in the 24 Hours of Daytona today, few have generated as much attention, controversy and even lust as the diesel Mazda6 racecar. We love diesels for their torque and fuel efficiency, and we love them even more when they can put 400 horsepower to the rear wheels like this one can.
Don't put in that order for a Ford Fusion just yet — for the same money you can get an equally sexy 2014 Mazda6 that gets the same MPG! Wait, hm. This is going to be tough.
