The 2014 Mazda6 is the midsize messiah we've been waiting for, a banisher of beige and a bringer of fun to a segment that desperately needs some. When I had a go, I said the best version to buy was the Touring with the manual trans. Problem is, that model didn't exist yet. But who needs facts to form an opinion?
The 2014 Mazda6 has been lauded by everyone and their uncle who has driven it. When I first had a go, I said the best version to buy was the Touring with the manual transmission. Problem was, I never even drove it. Now I have, and it's lovely.
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.
Remember how excited we were yesterday when we heard the Skyactiv-D Mazda6 was coming to America? For those of you that don't, we were very excited.
