Excellent sporty family car
This is an initial review. I'll add another one later one in my time with the car, but my initial thoughts are that the Mazda 6 Sport is a very nice car.
It looks excellent (the added body kit makes it stand out a bit more that the standard car.
Its fairly quiet (a bit of road noise but nothing terrible), the engine doesn't sound like a diesel.
Handling is excellent. Corners very flat. Firm but compliant ride. Handling belies its size: pretty nimble for a large car.
It goes pretty quick - it's starting to loosen up a bit, so I'm expecting better fuel consumption and performance as time goes by.
Loads of standard kit - I didn't need to get any extras, although I'm thinking now I wish I'd gone for rear parking sensors. That's all though. Bose stereo is excellent.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
