Alternatives

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.

Overview

Good fuel economy and an easy-to-use infotainment system make the Mazda 6 a cracking used buy

  • Impressive fuel economy
  • Strong but quiet diesel engine
  • Excellent infotainment system
  • Firm low-speed ride
  • Not as much fun to drive as some rivals
  • Rear head room for taller passengers
