What used Mazda 6 estate will I get for my budget?
How much does it cost to run a Mazda 6 estate?
The Mazda 6's low CO2 emissions result in reasonable road tax rates for a family car. The 2.2-litre diesel is the lowest polluter, with emissions of 147g/km, but the 1.8-litre and 2.0-litre petrol models aren't far behind at 162g/km and 168g/km.
These low emissions also mean that fuel economy is respectable: the diesels do an average of between 50.4mpg and 51.4mpg, while the petrols come in at around 40mpg.
Servicing costs are typical for this class of car, but Mazda's reliability record means bills should be kept to a minimum.
Insurance starts at group 20 for the smallest petrol, rising to 27 for the most powerful diesel.
