2019 Mazda Mazda6 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Mazda6?

The Mazda6 is a five-seat mid-size sedan that’s powered by a choice of four-cylinder engines: a standard 187-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder or an available 227-hp, turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder. Both engines work with a six-speed automatic transmission. Competitors include the Kia Optima, Honda Accord and Toyota Camry.

What’s New on the 2019 Mazda6?

New standard active safety features include forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability.

What Features in the 2019 Mazda6 Are Most Important?

The newly standard active safety features join already standard blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, giving this sedan a wealth of safety technology. Other standard features include automatic LED headlights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, 17-inch alloy wheels, the Mazda Connect multimedia system with an 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth streaming audio, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone automatic air conditioning and push-button start.

Available features include heated front seats, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, a power moonroof, a Bose premium stereo, a head-up display, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.

Should I Buy the 2019 Mazda6?

In the mid-size sedan class, the Mazda6 stands out for its handling and available premium finishes. However, the base four-cylinder engine could use more low-end power, and efficiency-focused shoppers looking for a hybrid version will have to look at one of the Mazda6’s competitors.

Best choice I've made for a car in a long time!

Like a bmw but better. Has all aspects that my finances bimmer has but more comfortable and more room. The oy thing I found was it has an issue with unlocking all door using the fob.

4.0

Love my 6

I love my 19 grand touring. It’s a great value. It feels like it’s well built. It’s comfy. And not many on the road. I like to bump it. Great Bose sound. But at 45k miles It’s been in the shop to many times. New turbo, new exhaust manifold, new fuel injector, new moldings - exterior, 5 check engine lights, about $7k in repairs. Thankfully all covered under warranty. I bought it with certified preowned. I’ll keep it till the 100k warranty runs out.

5.0

A very lasting look

This cars look will not age. In 10 years the cars look still be just as nice. The front is rooming and I he doors and dash blind very nicely with 3 colors. Back set has more room then my 3 but little short in the leg area still but not bad. A lot of trunk room. Handles great. After I got use to using the apple play screen it works well. I can move the menu by asking Siri’s or google. The safety is the biggest reason why I got it.
