Used Mazda 6 Saloon 2013-Present review

Mazda 6 Saloon 2013-Present
Review continues below...

What alternatives should I consider to a used Mazda 6 saloon?

The Ford Mondeo has the benefit of being a hatchback, which makes it more practical than the Mazda 6, plus it handles better too. The downsides are the rather cheap-feeling interior and complicated multimedia infotainment system.

The Skoda Superb is huge inside. Luxury limousines struggle to offer more back seat space. It isn’t quite as good to drive as rivals, though, and its diesel engines sound a bit more gruff.

The Vauxhall Insignia is great value. It has a smart interior and, like the Mondeo, a hatchback to aid practicality. However, it’s rather bland to drive and suffers from noisy diesel engines.
