Which used Mazda 6 estate should I buy?
Our favourite engine is the 2.2-litre diesel with 148bhp, because it pulls strongly once you get it up to around 2000rpm, giving you plenty of oomph in the mid-range to make good progress. The more powerful 173bhp version of this engine produces more boom in the process and also has higher CO2 emissions.
Either version of the 2.0-litre petrol engine needs to be worked hard to make similar progress when compared with the diesel, and the larger 2.5 isn't much better. Stick with the lower-output 2.0-litre petrol if you can't go for a diesel.
Sport Nav was a popular choice, but we’d recommend SE-L, because you get plenty of equipment for a reasonably small outlay. Higher-spec cars are fine if you can get them for the right price, but the larger alloy wheels that come as part of the package can spoil the ride quality.
Our favourite Mazda 6 Tourer: 2.2 Skyactiv-D 150 SE-L
