The Mazda Mazda6 recently underwent a makeover for the 2018 model year, and while it isn’t a complete redo, it has enhanced the car. What this means in practical terms is that the previous Mazda6 was very good, and now with the availability of a new turbocharged engine and additional enhancements, it is even better. In fact, the Mazda6 is one of those cars that gets a great deal of praise from enthusiast vehicle reviewers for its overall handling and over-the-road prowess. At the same time, it is a terrific mid-size sedan for everyday use like commuting to work or picking the kids up at school.
The major changes from the recent update include a new interior featuring redesigned seats with vibration-absorbing urethane foam that helps improve comfort. Underneath its attractive but familiar sheetmetal, some of the platform has been revised, using thicker steel in the floor for sound abatement, and its suspension has been re-engineered for greater refinement.
