Best of 2023 – Mazda6 Atenza

Best MM Segments of 2023 Mazda6 Atenza

Mazda6 Atenza– In the last few years normal passenger cars have been in decline. However, sedans like the Mazda6 remain a comfortable alternative to the continuing swing towards SUVs.

Mazda6 Atenza sedan front quarter 1 I drove the Atenza version a few weeks ago. This comes in either a sedan or wagon and both are a beautiful design.

The Mazda6 comes with a 2.5L turbo petrol engine with a six speed AT and FWD. There is reasonable power and torque and it also fairly economical.

The Mazda has a smooth and comfortable ride. Its very quiet and makes long distance driving relaxed. You could say it has a sporty edge to it.

Inside the Atenza is all comfort. Heated and ventilated front leather seats with Alcantara inserts and electric adjustment. Multi zone climate-controlled A/C. Digital instruments and HUD.

The large central screen and infotainment connectivity allows for wireless smart phone charging and wireless Apple CarPlay. However, Mazda’s insistence on the dial controls means that the functionality is dated now.

Personally I would opt for the wagon over the sedan as I’m a bit of a wagon fan, but either would make owners happy.

The Mazda6 Atenza sedan is priced from $52,440 plus the usual costs and that’s actually good value.
