What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the 2005 Mazda Mazda6

2005 Mazda Mazda6 Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2006 4dr Sedan turbocharged 274hp 2.3L I4
6-speed manual AWD
I have kept a spreadsheet of the car's fuel economy since the car was brand new. Never made less than 20 mpg, average around 22-23 with city/highway mix. Best fuel economy strictly highway driving was 27.xx mpg. That's pretty impressive to me considering the power this car has. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2005 4dr Sedan 160-horsepower 2.3L I4
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
30+ mpg highway 25 mpg city driving in a full size car with adequate horsepower. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2005 Mazda Mazda6 Real Gas Mileage: Cons

6-speed manual AWD
Not necessarily a dislike, just a natural trade off for having 270 horsepower on tap. Averaging 22mpg with mostly city and traffic driving. It actually still bests my old 00 VW Golf turbo, which typically mustered only 20mpg with half the horsepower! see full Mazda Mazda6 review

Not very good unless you are on the highway only cruising. On the highway it can get 28+ mpg. However, in mixed driving you will be lucky to get 20 mpg. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2006 4dr Hatch 215-horsepower 3.0L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
The only minor complaints I have about this car comes from the engine. It puts out slightly less horsepower than racing engines of the same size, but eats just as much gas, roughly 15% more than I expected from an engine this size. This is something Mazda has drastically improved in recent years, but remains something to watch out for in their larger engines before 2010. see full Mazda Mazda6 review

26mpg was the most I got on one long trip down south. I drove it mostly highway and usually got 21mpg, even when taking it easy. Around town I got 18mpg. Not great for a 4-cyl engine. My Saab has almost as much power and gets 24mpg around town. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2004 4dr Sedan 220-horsepower 3.0L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Not real happy with MPG. I get around 25 on the highway, about the same as my Pontiac Montana I used to own. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2004 4dr Sedan 160-horsepower 2.3L I4
5-speed manual FWD
terrible fuel consumption for the performance, never below 8.5l/100km hwy or 11l city, equal size European or Asian market vehicles use 20-30% less at comparable performance, if you're looking for fuel economy look elsewhere as this is the smallest engine for this car see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2004 4dr Wagon 220-horsepower 3.0L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Poor economy, though almost comparable to other V6. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2004 4dr Sedan 160-horsepower 2.3L I4
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Rarely got out of the mid-20s, even on long road trips by myself. I expected better from a 4-cylinder engine, even in a car this size. Again, my 1994 Honda Accord did better, routinely cracking 30 MPG on road trips. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
