“In Europe, the 2.2-liter turbocharged diesel engine offers 173 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque and can be paired to either a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic. It’s unclear if those specs will carryover to the U.S. powerplant, but do expect only an automatic transmission to be offered”
Went to test drive these fun to drive Family Sedans this weekend. Here are my thoughts.
Will try to write up a review by Monday latest.
Pretty prettay prettay good
I called the dealer about my seat problem. And, they didn’t tell me what I wanted to hear.
February 2016: Four months and 4,300 miles after I bought my 6, I discovered the driver’s seat upholstery was peeling and flaking.
My new-ish 2015 Mazda6 iTouring 6MT!
The Grand Touring starts at $29,200, and that money gets you into the Skyactiv-G 2.5T turbocharged engine 227HP(250 with premium) and 310 Lb/Ft
I’m not a frequent poster, but some of you may remember a few posts about a Mazda 6 MPS or Mazdaspeed 6 for U.S. folks that I bought last summer. Long story to follow, scroll down for summary, haha.
Got these chrome mirror accents from Amazon. They match the chrome window trim quite well.
In case my post is overlooked in the recent Mazda 6 article, I figure I come here to inform as well. Also, the Mazda 3 is offered in AWD as well.
In Japan, you can get a brown manual diesel Mazda Atenza wagon with the rear wheels driven (in addition to the front wheels, but still) for about 3.4 million yen out the door, apparently.
Looks like the 2.5 Turbo from the CX-9 is going to find a new home under the hood of the 2018 6.
6 miles on October 10, 2015 to 20,900 miles on October 10, 2017. The only changes are a few rock chips and scratches here and there, tinted windows, and a car seat and sunshade for my son. #dadcar yo
Did a quick interior detail. The dirt and grass and crud all over the mats and carpet and the dusty dashboard had become too much for me. Way, way too much. The outside is still filthy - covered in bugs and gravel dust from my trip to my friend’s family farm in the middle of nowhere. But at least the interior is clean…
Mmmm water beading.
Another pair’o Camaro:
I see this TSX wagon on my commute pretty much every morning. Finally had a chance to snag a picture this morning and lo and behold it had a friend.
