Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

You won’t have much trouble getting comfortable behind the wheel of the Mazda 6 Tourer. There’s a height-adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar adjustment on all models, plus a generous range to the rake and reach-adjustable steering wheel. Visibility is fine, too, with relatively slim windscreen pillars and large door mirrors that let you spot what’s coming up alongside.

It has one of the easiest infotainment systems to operate among its immediate rivals. That’s because it’s controlled via a handy rotary controller and shortcut buttons down by the gearlever. They're less distracting to use when driving than prodding away at a touchscreen – something you have to do in the 6 Tourer's mainstream rivals. You can use the touchscreen if you prefer that to the rotary controller.

The menus are easy to navigate with a little familiarisation, but the screen isn’t as sharp as the best out there. It has Android Auto, wireless Apple Carplay, sat-nav, Bluetooth and every other function you’d want, though.

If you’re looking for a swanky-looking interior, the 6 Tourer should meet your expectations. There’s an attractive fusion of materials, including squidgy surfaces on the dashboard, gloss black trims around the centre console and a smattering of chrome-effect details to top it all off. It’s perhaps more visually appealing inside than a Skoda Superb Estate, but it doesn't feel quite as sturdily built inside, and the old-fashioned dials (you need top-spec GT Sport for a digital driver’s read-out) and grainy infotainment graphics make it feel a bit dated in comparison.
