The current Mazda6 is starting to show its age a little bit, which raises the question if it’s still a compelling proposition for those in the market for a family sedan.
In this review from Redline Reviews, we get a taste of what it is like to live with the 2020 Mazda6 Signature variant, which sits at the very top of the Mazda6 family with prices starting at $35,400. Those with not quite that much money to spend have heaps of other variants to choose from, such as the Grand Touring Reserve, Grand Touring, Touring, and the entry-level Sport that’s priced from $24,100.
Powering the car is a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder that produces 250 hp and 310 lb-ft (420 Nm) of torque. The engine is mated exclusively to a 6-speed automatic transmission driving the front wheels and, according to the EPA, the Mazda6 Signature is good for 23 mpg in the city, 31 mpg highway, and 26 mpg combined.
Visually, the current-generation Mazda6 has aged very gracefully and the Kodo design language still looks good. Sure, we can’t wait to see the next-generation land in 2022 and are sure it will look even better, but the current model is still stylish enough to attract attention.
The interior of the model tested looks particularly nice, thanks largely to the nice white Nappa leather. Also found within is a Head-Up Display, a partly-digital gauge cluster, and some subtle wood trim as well as various aluminum trims.
