What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For It's roomy, well made, affordable, and sweet to drive. It looks good, too

Against It has a firm-ish ride around town, and some road noise on the motorway

Verdict It's not as cheap as a Mondeo or Vectra, but it is a notch classier in most respects

Go for… 2.0 D 140bhp TS

Avoid… 2.0 S

Mazda 6 Estate
  • 1. A few owners have reported clutch failure on both diesels and petrols with fewer than 30,000 miles on the clock
  • 2. The load area is easy to get at and the seats drop easily and quickly, with no need to remove the headrests
  • 3. S trim is at the bottom of the range, but still has plenty of kit, including air-con and a CD player
  • 4. The rear seats are comfortable enough for three people
  • 5. The 2.0-litre petrol is a decent engine, but the 140bhp diesel is better still
