Mazda 6 2.5 Sportive, Mini Quiz (I)
and just over a year ago my colleague Oscar could prove the depth Mazda 6. Specifically, equipped with balanced turbodiesel engine 163 hp 2.2, which has a very good response and consumption as myself could testify, I mounted on a Mazda 3 in its version of 150 hp. In parentheses after this year we offer a small test (only two parts) of new Mazda 6 updated and equipped with the most powerful petrol engine range, 2.5 four-cylinder 170 hp.
This engine is positioned above the 2.0 DISI 155 hp and 120 hp 1.8. In the previous generation Mazda 6 was available with an MPS version 2.3 AWD Turbo engine and 260 hp in the current generation must be content with 2.5 170 hp. After the jump we analyze the changes that have hit the Mazda 6 facelift after last year and talk about my impressions of the interior, comparable to test Oscar.
More aesthetic dynamism in 2010
As you know, the Mazda 6 He has received a slight aesthetic update this year, designed to give more dynamism - or if we speak as Mazda, zoom-zoom - the stylized figure of its flagship sedan. The most important changes are focused on the front, receiving a slightly different grille and a sportier bumpers. I think a great improvement area of lights, with accents in silver plastic that update their image without reloading the set at all.
The 17 inch wheels which are mounted on the Sportive finish also they have an updated design, although based on a classic and recognizable Mazda model. At the rear there are no changes, our test unit to be the most powerful petrol has two exhaust pipes, one on each side of the body. The transparent optical efectista maintain their design intact. The Mazda 6 still has a different and unique aesthetic in a segment that is traditionally very conservative design.
Comfortable and equipped passenger compartment
The Mazda 6, 2010 just you have changes in the passenger compartment from the model 2008 which he proved my partner Oscar, so the vast majority of their impressions remain valid in this Mini Quiz. No significant developments inside the Mazda 6 facelift after only changes the steering wheel in my opinion is treated less personal design. Its rim is thinner and has more buttons. It's the same steering wheel mounted for example the Mazda 3 I had the chance to try.
By having the Sportive trim level, leather upholstery is standard. It is a full leather upholstery in the Mazda 6 Oscar leather upholstery was mixed with fabric. No more changes in standard equipment, we continue to enjoy a GPS navigator, 6 CD changer and premium audio equipment signed by BOSE, which is always a guarantee for a sound championship. our unit mounts the optional Premium Pack (€ 2,200), which in addition to the browser an openable sunroof is included.
Brightens to a carrier which itself is very livable and spacious. The front seats are power adjustable seats and space dimensions seem to me the most correct. The instrumentation backlit in red and blue It is very sporty and has an easy to read in all weather conditions. The pedal assembly is aluminum and is equipped with small rubber pads to avoid accidental slipping of the pedals, especially if we wet shoes.
The overall management of the center console controls are intuitive, and it is handling the browser and destination entry. A typical Mazda detail not just convinced me all LCD screens are that the car carries on the dashboard and instrumentation. The first displays information of air conditioning, sound system and onboard computer. Second only teaches us the total and partial odometer. My complaint centers on this duality and look too "Nineties".
The rear seats are quite spacious, though the central passenger has a tunnel and part of the center console limiting space your legs, you will have to do battle with the two passengers flanking him. A center armrest with cup holders included replaces the fifth passenger if not traveling in the car. The fact that our test unit be a five-door greatly facilitates access to the luggage compartment and loading and unloading of bulky objects.
In the trunk goes into a volume of 510 liters load, if we folded down the rear seat row and 1702 liters are reached. The cubremaletero tray can be removed for better load. Although the shape of the boot is not entirely regulate the charging port has a correct height and there is little jump to the loading floor. It has a spare wheel type cookie, although it also carries the stereo subwoofer in the trunk.
Overall I think it has a nicely finished interior, with some colorful materials and note that they are of good quality, the best in the generalist segment. To summarize, it is a car with a different, functional and easy exterior and interior design to use. Tomorrow will realize its engine and dynamic behavior, different from the diesel versions. Discover tomorrow how it behaves, whether it is worth about a diesel and its main rivals.
