2009 4dr Sedan 170-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed manual FWD
28.5 mpg. Driving to the interstate, taking the interstate to the other side of town, then driving to work (or home). see full Mazda Mazda6 review

6-speed manual FWD
So far seems higher than EPA estimates. Gearing close so that I can drive 30-40 around town in 5ht or even 6th. 6th should be further out to improve mileage even more. see full Mazda Mazda6 review

The fuel economy is in the upper range of the norm for this class of car. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2007 4dr Sedan turbocharged 270hp 2.3L I4
6-speed manual AWD
24 MPg in the winter and 27 in the summer is not bad for a sedan that can do 140 mph (as fast as I have gone in the thing. Compared to SkyActive not great but then the newer Mazda’s are about flue economy more than performance. see full Mazda Mazda6 review

2009 4dr Sedan 272-horsepower 3.7L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Hmmm...yes, this is the sore point. But to tell you the truth, I am getting a little tired of pursueing one at the loss of the other. And do enjoy regular gas. see full Mazda Mazda6 review

6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Well, the 4 cylinder was wonderful, averaging 25mpg, but the large 3.7 seems to be averaging around 21/22...not much better, if not the same, than the Lincoln MKS. But I DO drive this car really hard. Its difficult not to, its so much fun. see full Mazda Mazda6 review

i like the power feeling which that engine can provide only above 4000 rpms, and than it drinks :) see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2007 4dr Sedan 156-horsepower 2.3L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
I get only 26mpg highway and 19-21 mpg city with 4 cylinder. My other car (toyota solara) do over 33 mpg highway easily even with winter gas. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
