2011 Mazda MAZDA6 Review: Introduction
Mazda enjoys a richly deserved reputation for building fun to drive cars. From the RX-7 to the MX-5 and on into the company’s hatchbacks and sedans, you can always count on Mazda to infuse a car with qualities conducive to enjoyable driving.
With the MAZDA6, the company offers a sedan that is also handsome and comfortable. Leading the market with attributes such as a steering wheel sized just right to feel nice in your hands, along with a sporty and practical interior design, the MAZDA6 really ought to be a best seller in its segment.
We say ought to be, because, well it isn’t.
You see, its segment also includes America’s best selling four-door sedans; Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. These cars are formidable competitors for the Mazda, because more shoppers in this category care more about arriving than driving. Thus, other than in reviews like this one, the MAZDA6’s virtues have gone largely unsung.
