Mazda6 2.2 D 150 Sport Nav receives the plaudits

The Mazda6 has quickly become one of the more popular choices for fleet decision makers due to its style coupled with impressive efficiency.

With this in mind, it's perhaps not too surprising then that Fleet News gave the Mazda6 2.2 D 150 Sport Nav a very positive review indeed, highlighting the real perks of driving such a car.

The Mazda boasts impressive CO2 emission levels of 108g/km, but the news provider is quick to point out that "you don’t have to sacrifice performance".

It has 280lb-ft of torque, a combined MPG of 67 as well as a top speed of 131mph, perfectly combining efficiency with a decent speed, allowing for the best of both worlds.

On top of this, it looks delightful too with sleek and subtle stylings designed to both look good and offer aerodynamics.

Fleet News reports: "The Mazda6 has also been praised for retaining much of the sleek appearance of the Takeri concept car that inspired it, and in this Sport model perhaps more so with 19-inch alloy wheels and ‘soul red’ metallic paint.

The positives don't stop there though, with the vehicle including safety features such as an autonomous emergency braking system and plenty of luxury items going on inside the car.

Leather seats, which are electrically adjustable and heated in the front, are included in the vehicle as well as bi-xenon headlamps with a cornering function, a reversing camera and even a Bose premium audio system.

"All these factors combined to edge out the formidable Volkswagen Passat and take victory in the Best Upper Medium Car in the 2013 Fleet News Awards," the news provider reports.

"Over the next 12 months we will be finding out if the new Mazda6 proves as impressive to live with as expected given its success so far."

The vehicle only went on sale this year but, thanks to these features and the impressive legacy of its predecessor, it looks set to be a real mainstay of many company fleets.
