Which used Mazda 6 saloon should I buy?
This is one car where cheap can be cheerful. Equipment levels are high on the most basic models, and even the smallest engine, the 1.8 petrol, does the job pretty well.
There are no poor performers, so the entry-level 1.8 S is an excellent buy. And, handily, there are quite a few for sale, partly because a lot of new car buyers were tempted into it because its list price substantially undercut its main rival's, the Ford Mondeo. But the Ford loses value from new faster than the Mazda, so prices at a year old for the two are similar.
