A Japanese company, Mazda traces its roots back to 1920, when Jujiro Matsuda founded the Toyo Cork Kogyo Company in Hiroshima, Japan. The company at first manufactured machine parts and then in 1931 produced the Mazda-Go, a three-wheeled truck. In 1958, the company produced its first four-wheeled truck, the Romper, and in 1960 its first two-door car, the Coupe R360. The company began selling cars in the United States in 1970. Today, some of Mazda’s most popular models in the United States include the compact Mazda3, the Mazda5 hatchback and the CX-5 crossover.
About the Mazda 6
While it’s classified as a midsize sedan, the Mazda 6 has long been one of the sportiest options in its class. It was overhauled entirely for the 2014 model year. The 2014 Mazda 6 is available in three trims: Sport, Touring and Grand Touring. All three come with a four-cylinder SKYACTIV engine (a diesel engine became available in late 2013) and your choice of manual or automatic transmission. Even the base Sport (automatic models) comes standard with nice features such as cruise control, Bluetooth, voice-controlled audio, a touch-screen display, a rear-view camera and remote keyless entry. The Grand Touring model adds extras such as a Bose sound system, a Mazda navigation system, automatically dimming mirrors, heated, leather-trimmed front seats, and optional Mazda Radar Cruise Control. “The 2014 6 is a dynamic sweetheart that can dance step for step with a Honda Accord, and it’s a bold design statement,” says Car and Driver in its first-drive review of the Mazda 6. The reviewer praised the “hunky, aggressive” style and tactile handling, while noting the lack of powertrain options. Other reviewers, according to U.S. News and World Report, say “the Mazda 6’s excellent fuel economy, engaging performance and large, upscale cabin make it a strong choice in its class.”
Mazda 6 Motorsports
The Mazda 6 burst back onto the racing scene in 2013 with the introduction of the diesel-powered Mazda 6 SKYACTIV-D race car, which has been engineered to put out 400 horsepower. In July 2013, this Mazda 6 became the first diesel-powered car ever to win the Grand-Am Brickyard Grand Prix in Indianapolis. For two years, Mazda made a consumer racing version of the Mazda 6: the Mazdaspeed6. Although Car and Driver called it a “bad-boy-sedan” and “the hottest four-door the company has ever offered,” Mazda ceased manufacturing the Mazdaspeed6 in 2007.
Mazda 6 Environmental Impact
The Mazda 6 gets decent gas mileage for a midsize sedan: 25 mpg city/37 highway with a six-speed manual transmission and 26/38 with automatic. Although Mazda doesn’t offer a hybrid Mazda 6, the Grand Touring version offers the i-ELOOP option that nudges the gas mileage up to 28 in the city and 40 on the highway.
