TrueDelta Reviews the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2014 Mazda Mazda6

2014 Mazda Mazda6 Seat Room and Comfort: Cons
YearComment
This one, again borrowed from the earlier review, won't be an issue with most potential buyers: The Mazda6's svelte, athletically proportioned body comes at a typical price: rear seat room, as in the Ford Fusion, is merely adequate. Sitting behind my 5-9 self, my knees and head have only an inch or two of clearance, my shins none. Among major competitors, only the Chevrolet Malibu has a tighter rear seat. To carve out even this much room beneath the plunging rear roofline the new Mazda6's rear seat cushion is slightly undersized and positioned too low. That in the Fusion is more supportive. A deal killer? Unless space for large adults is a priority, no. If, on the other hand, space for large adults is a priority, then the Honda Accord and VW Passat are better bets. Even for small passengers, the Mazda6 Sport's rear seat has a key shortcoming. Unlike in the Touring and Grand Touring, there's no rear air vent to help cool the aft cabin in the summer. see full Mazda Mazda6 review

I am six feet tall with a long torso and legs, so I usually have the seat pretty far back. With the front seat in a comfortable position, the rear seats have plenty of leg and head room for adults, even more so for my kids. see full Mazda Mazda6 review

TrueDelta Reviews the Powertrain of the 2014 Mazda Mazda6

2014 Mazda Mazda6 Powertrain: Pros
YearComment
2014 The Mazda6's 184-horsepower naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine can't go toe-to-toe with competitors' boosted fours and V6s. But compared to their base, efficiency-oriented engines, Mazda's new SKYACTIV 2.5 feels energetic and voices a satisfying snarl when revved. Acceleration roughly splits the difference between the quicker Honda and the slower Ford. But don't expect a Mazda6 with the manual to be quicker than one with the automatic. In magazine tests the automatic gets to 60 mph significantly sooner, low 7s vs high 7s, partly because second gear tops out at 57 rather than 62. The six-speed manual transmission pairs well with this engine. Shift throws, while smooth, feel direct and mechanical, like a well-oiled rifle bolt. Though you'll experience a similar feel in the best sports cars, it's rare in front-wheel-drive sedans. The Fusion's shifter feels at least as smooth as the Mazda's, but delivers little in the way of sensation, positive or negative. I haven't been able to drive an Accord with a manual transmission. The best Honda manual transmissions are a match for the Mazda's, not quite as mechanical in character but even tighter and more precise. Does even an excellent manual transmission fit the character of any of these cars? Given the Accord's feel-free steering and uninvolving character, a manual transmission likely suits it least. The match with the Fusion is iffy for different reasons: the 178-horsepower engine it's offered with is merely adequate when pitted against the Ford's curb weight. With its light weight and lesser focus on noise suppression and refinement, the Mazda pairs best with a manual shifter. But even here the overall driving experience falls short of involving. The manual transmission does not seem at all out of place, and I enjoyed driving the car, but I didn't look forward to driving it. Perhaps with more power... see full Mazda Mazda6 review

2014 Mazda Mazda6 Powertrain: Pros

2015 4dr Sedan 184-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
The engine with auto transmission is the best powertrain I've driven, ever. I've driven mostly manual trannys because of the directness and feedback. But I've tired of shifting. This transmission is flawless. It holds onto a gear if you're turning, it downshifts if you're in cruise and it goes faster than the setting, and it almost always chooses the best gear. I didn't get the grand touring finish level because of price, and I know that one has settings for normal and sporty driving, along with shift paddles on the steering wheel. While I wish I had paddles, I don't mind using the manual feature on the shifter. Works great. This is a big part of why SkyActive works so well. It's a lot lighter, and all gears but first are direct, with no fluid slip. Amazing. see full Mazda Mazda6 review

6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
The 184 HP Skyactiv four banger with variable valve timing is fine for this car unless you really like to push your vehicles hard. Auto transmission is very responsive. Safety features are good, especially like the lane change warning system and the backup cross traffic sensors in the rear quarter panels. see full Mazda Mazda6 review

Mazda seems to have struck a balance between power and high mileage with this car. It is no tire burner for sure, and I want more torque at lower RPM. But the power is there; when you need to push it along just step on it. Small communities need our traffic ticket money these days anyway. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2013 4dr Sedan 170-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed manual FWD
I got the 6 speed manual transmission paired with the 2.5 4-cylinder. Mazda has geared the transmission with very close ratios, to the point that even the overdrive 6th gear leaves the engine spinning at close to 3,000 rpm at 70mph. It is geared like a sports car. I list this as a "con", although I personally love the set up. I just want potential purchasers to know that they'll be shifting a lot (which is a pleasure with the transmission) and that fuel economy suffers a little due to the sporting orientation of the powertrain. Thankfully, the engine is smooth and revvy paired with the best manual transmission I've ever driven. So, maybe not exactly a "con", but something to point out. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
