Sorry Honda, there’s a new BMW of the East – and it’s Mazda’s turbo-petrol Mazda6
15 Oct 2018
AS GLOBAL sedan and wagon sales start to slide because everyone thinks an SUV is the place to be, Mazda has applied what could be regarded as an unusually comprehensive late-life update to its Mazda6 mid-sizer.
Given how high the third-generation Mazda6 set the segment bar when it launched in 2012, newer competitors still struggle to claim all-things-considered superiority. Mazda has fought its corner with regular updates, too.
But at this point in its lifecycle, rather than winding down in readiness to step aside for its fourth-gen successor, the Mazda6 looks and feels new again both inside and out with a genuinely classy makeover. More significantly, it has inherited the CX-9 large SUV’s turbo-petrol engine.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new BMW of the East.
Model release date: 1 June 2018
