Mommy's Favorite Things: 2016 Mazda6

2016 Mazda6

Looking for a sporty mid size sedan that comes in just over $20,000 and gets up to 40 MPG? Then the 2016 Mazda6 just might be for you. I reviewed the Mazda3 last June and this is just a bit bigger, making it more acceptable for a small family!

With steering wheel mounted controls, driving the Mazda6 is a breeze. Everything is right there at your fingertips. From your phone, to cruise control to the volume and tuning of the stereo. It is all right there so you never have to take your eyes off the road.

The Mazda6 displayed your speed on the windshield making it super available and easy to see without ever looking down.

With a touch stereo and an easy to use knob in the center console, using the stereo is also a breeze. The knob is really neat, it lets you control the whole stereo easily with just your fingers. You can control volume, stereo, navigation and more.

Keep your cup holders clean by closing them up!

LOTS of legroom in the front and back. Much roomier than the Mazda3

Nice entry into the vehicle

AND a gorgeous back seat! The cream leather really popped with the black accents in the car

To the trunk space

While driving, the Mazda6 has the blind spot alert system. It les you know when a car is next to you in your blind spot. 

Also with the Mazda6. When you're driving and you turn on your blinker, if there is a ar next to you, the car will beep at you to let you know that a lane change is not possible at that time! A very neat feature that scared me a couple times. But it is nice!

Overall a wonderfully gorgeous car to drive!

Safety wise, the Mazda6 excels as well. 
It features Radar Cruise Control. While on the highway it will maintain a certain distance between you and the car in front of you, which is a great feature to have. And when the car in front moves, your cruise control goes back up to the speed you had it set at, automatically!

Smart Brake Support with Collision Warning. When going over 10mph or more it will alert you of something in front of you and let you know you need to brake. 

Lane Departure Warning System lets you know when it thinks you are unintentionally going over a line in the road.

With a price starting at $21,495 the Mazda6 really is for anybody with any budget! It's a perfect car!

I would definitely recommend the Mazda6 to a person who is single, a couple or a couple with 1-2 small children! Great trunk space and room to tote around extra people, just not ideal for more than 1-2 car seats.
*Disclaimer, I received a Mazda6 for a 1 week test drive. All opinions here are 100% my own and I was not compensated to write this post, other than receiving the vehicle.

This Mazda is a really good car, and one that I would love to own. I like the red color and these cars are rated very high by Consumer groups. Maybe someday I can get me one of these cars.

I'm looking to replace my 2002 car and this would be great. Things have really improved in the last 14 years.
