Our overall rating:
If asked to ponder Mazda, you might conjure up images of an MX-5 roadster whizzing along, roof down, on a dazzling summer’s day? After all, it’s the Japanese company’s iconic product. Lest we forget, however, that Mazda has a portfolio of cars spanning not just the dinky MX-5, but SUVs, saloons and estates, and it’s that last one that we’re focusing on here, with the Mazda 6 Tourer.
There’s arguably something rather elegant about Mazda’s big estate, which was the first to feature the company’s current styling philosophy known as ‘Kodo’ design. But while its swoops and curves may have you peering through the showroom windows, is the Mazda 6 Tourer good enough that you should enter and sign on the dotted line?
That’s a question you’ll have answered simply by reading this review, as we run through which trims and engines make the most sense, along with how the 6 Tourer stacks up against its rivals, including estate versions of the Skoda Superb, Vauxhall Insignia and Ford Mondeo.
