2006 Mazda Mazda6 Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
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
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

30+ mpg highway 25 mpg city driving in a full size car with adequate horsepower. see full Mazda Mazda6 review

The Ford 3.0L engine isn't particular good on gas, nor is it particularly powerful see full Mazda Mazda6 review

it is very hard to get more than 27 mpg even with all highway drive 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

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
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

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

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
