Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

With no diesel, plug-in hybrid or electric variants available, the Mazda 6 Tourer doesn’t make sense for company car buyers because the benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax costs will be very high.

It’s a different story for retail buyers. For such a spacious car with good equipment levels, list prices for the 6 Tourer are very competitive, and Mazda often has tempting finance deals with low interest and deposit. If you find one, the 6 Tourer is good value on purchase costs, although it’s also expected to suffer from heavier depreciation than the BMW 3 Series Touring.

Sport trim is offered only with the higher-powered 2.0-litre engine. It’s a big price jump from the entry-level 6 Tourer that we prefer, but it does get heated and electrically adjustable front seats, a reversing camera, 19-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry and a Bose sound system.

GT Sport trim comes on the 2.5-litre model only, and includes a sunroof, heated outer rear seats, digital driver’s dials, adaptive LED headlights, a 360-degree parking camera and even some real wood trim around the dash.

Mazda as a brand finished an impressive eight out of 30 manufacturers included in the 2021 What Car? Reliability Survey. Every 6 Tourer gets a three-year or 60,000-mile warranty, matching that of most rivals.

The 6 Tourer gets a full five-star crash test rating from Euro NCAP. The adult and child occupancy scores are very good for the class, and safety kit includes automatic emergency braking (AEB), blind-spot monitoring and lane-keeping assistance on every model.
