 So far so good with the exception of the smart city brake warning light on which I am waiting for an answer. The car drives well, I think the handbook could be more informative.

 I had been considering for a long time what new car to buy and I could not make up my mind. That was until I saw a new Mazda 6 drive past - it really turned my head. I thought it was such a good looking car and I decided to investigate further. It turned out the car I saw was the newly refreshed Sport Nav model, and for the price it comes incredibly well equipped. There was only one optional extra available because the car already has every other feature fitted as standard. The car I test drove had the 2.2 diesel engine with 150 PS which the salesperson described as enough, and so it is. If you want more, then the 175 PS version certainly fits the bill. I was pleased to discover the extra horsepower makes more difference than I expected it to. On the motorway it is very authoritative and accelerates easily without needing to drop a gear. I plumped for a manual transmission, and a little display under the tachometer suggests when you should change gear. I was surprised at first by how soon it recommends changing up, but have quickly learned to trust it. The engine pulls strongly from as low as 1000 rpm, and when driving in town you can waft through the gears, which feels very gentle and relaxing. The car's features are well thought out and genuinely useful. For example - when you're not using the nav system, it displays the name of the next street you're approaching at the top of the screen. A small head-up display shows your speed and, when using the nav system, turn-by-turn instructions in the driver's line of sight without having to take your eyes off the road. As well as front and rear parking sensors it has a reversing camera, which makes parking a lot easier, given how long the car is. That means there is lots of leg room in the back, and lots of space in the boot. It sometimes overhangs parking spaces though. The car has an automatic stop-start system - called i-STOP, and a kinetic energy recovery system called i-ELOOP, but instead of using the recovered energy to drive the car as a hybrid does, it charges a large capacitor which is used to power the car's electrical systems. The i-ELOOP and i-STOP systems work together so that when the capacitor is uncharged, as it might be after a motorway cruise, the i-STOP will not operate. Cruising at speed is the car's most economical mode of operation anyway - the i-STOP and i-ELOOP systems seem to be intended to improve economy during the car's least economical mode, stop-start driving in town. The build quality is great, the doors close with a nice satisfying sound as does the boot lid. The cabin is well sound proofed, letting in only a little outside noise and there are no squeaks or rattles. All surfaces feel very nice, and there are brown leather accents in the doors and across the dashboard to complement the black leather upholstery. The interior is seriously good, rivalling anything you would get in a BMW, Audi or Mercedes - and you would pay far more for it. You get dual-zone climate control and heated front seats. The driver's seat is electrically adjustable and has two settings. The Sport models come with an 11-speaker Bose surround system, which sounds brilliant. The meteor grey paint suits the car particularly well, matching the alloy wheels and the sunset glass. It's very sleek with sweeping lines, and looks good from every angle. Chrome inserts all over the car body really finish it off. The very first time I drove it I saw people looking at it, and on my very first day parking it at work someone commented on it. Any criticisms? I guess the reversing light is a bit dim, although the reversing camera mitigates this. The LED headlights are very bright, which is good for me, although I worry about how bright they seem to other drivers. All in all, I love my new car and am very happy with the choice I made. If you're looking for a luxury saloon and don't want the obvious German car that everyone else seems to drive, I think you should consider a Mazda6.

 I love it, takes a bit of getting used to the electronics and I might end up visiting for some advice. Everyone loves the colour, but no problems at all. As this is bigger than my Passat, it takes a little bit of getting used to, but after some two years of looking I am glad I waited for this car, even my wife loves it.

 Very happy with car - took a little time to get used to all the features, but now ok - many more than on the old car. Find the reversing camera really helpful.

 This is the second Mazda6 I have owned and they keep getting better. The Mazda infotainment center is a great improvement over the previous TomTom system,more user friendly and better sited on the dashboard. The car is now quieter than my previous model and seems to ride better. Very happy with the service so far from Northampton Motors who have been helpful with my queries.

 Everyone I dealt with was polite, friendly and cheerful. On a minor note, it was good that the whole range still features a CD player. Call me old fashioned, but it did make the difference!!

 This is not your normal Mazda 6 it is the 2.5SL. It's just a pleasure to drive I find reason to use the car. Considering this is a 2008 its features and gadgets would beat or rival most modern cars. It is a sporty firm drive with great looks but doesn't stand out in the crowd very under stated which I love. It not a big car but with front and rear sensors it simple to park. Great Car Mazda love it.
