Used Mazda 6 Estate (2002 - 2007) Review

The car that began Mazda's current fixation with its 'zoom-zoom' advertising, the Mazda6 transformed the image of the brand from one that sold worthy-but-dull cars (MX-5 apart) to one that produces a range of cars people could become genuinely excited by. Class-leading handling along with excellent value make the Mazda6 one of the best cars in its class.

The car that began Mazda's current fixation with its 'zoom-zoom' advertising, the Mazda6 transformed the image of the brand from one that sold worthy-but-dull cars (MX-5 apart) to one that produces a range of cars people could become genuinely excited by. Class-leading handling along with excellent value make the Mazda6 one of the best cars in its class.

Upgrades in 2005 made the Mazda6 more sporty looking, and offered a smarter interior and power increases for 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines.

What owners say...

 Large boot for camping gear. Can get 3m length of copper tube in car.

 Very roomy estate and easy to fold down the back seats.

 Probably the boot, for a hatchback it had quite a lot of space in the boot.
