What Our Members Are Saying about the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2006 Mazda Mazda6

2006 Mazda Mazda6 Seat Room and Comfort: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2006 4dr Sedan turbocharged 274hp 2.3L I4
6-speed manual AWD
It took a while for me to adjust the seat properly, but after I did, I have to say the seating position and comfort rivaled many European sedans I have driven. I was not used to this level of comfort from an Asian-designed automobile. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2005 4dr Sedan 160-horsepower 2.3L I4
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
I can fit three car seats in it. I can put my seat as far back as I need to and most adults can still sit comfortably in the back. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2005 4dr Sedan 160-horsepower 2.3L I4

Large enough for a six foot fiver and still room in the back. see full Mazda Mazda6 review

front seat is designed to short for taller people. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2006 4dr Sedan turbocharged 274hp 2.3L I4
6-speed manual AWD
For short trips the Speed6 is fine. Longer than 2 hours in the car kills my back. Maybe the seats are cheaper in the Sport vs. the GT. Fortunately I've only taken 1 or 2 very long trips in it. see full Mazda Mazda6 review

What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2006 Mazda Mazda6

2006 Mazda Mazda6 Powertrain: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2007 4dr Sedan 156-horsepower 2.3L I4
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
4 cylinder feels very quick to me. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2007 4dr Sedan 212-horsepower 3.0L V6
5-speed manual FWD
Since the Fusion and the Mazda 6 are essentially the same car, it came down to which was the preferred version. The Mazda has a very nice shifting 5 speed manual available in the V6. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2006 4dr Sedan turbocharged 274hp 2.3L I4
6-speed manual AWD
Once the engine is revved to 3000 rpm or more, the power delivery is impressive, smooth and without torque steer. The AWD system, while not as sophisticated as an EVO or STI, is still capable of delivering surprising grip and performance. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2006 4dr Sedan turbocharged 274hp 2.3L I4
6-speed manual AWD
Excellent power delivery, quick acceleration. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2006 4dr Hatch 215-horsepower 3.0L V6
5-speed manual FWD
versatile, flexible, fun to drive with 5 speed, runs fine on regular gas. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2006 4dr Hatch 215-horsepower 3.0L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
V6 with the 6 speed auto is more than adequate, although manual shifting of the auto is imprecise (not fast enough or direct enough). Transmission shifts smoothly for everyday use. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2006 4dr Sedan turbocharged 274hp 2.3L I4
6-speed manual AWD
The car accelerates immediately with no turbo lag. Even in 6th gear when I punch the accelerator the car responds quickly. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2005 4dr Sedan 215-horsepower 3.0L V6
5-speed manual FWD
decent performance from v6 with mtx see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2005 4dr Sedan 160-horsepower 2.3L I4
4-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Not as powerful as the V-6 but adequate for most driving with 4 cylinder economy. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2005 4dr Hatch 160-horsepower 2.3L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Even the 2.3L 4cyl engine has plenty of pep. It has 160 hp and is not too heavy. The MAN TRAN is smooth and quick. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2006 Mazda Mazda6 Powertrain: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2007 4dr Sedan turbocharged 270hp 2.3L I4
6-speed manual AWD
Despite the good performance I rate the engine a bit of a mixed bag. Very toruey in the mid range it runs out of puff fairly early on which does not exactly sceam sporty to me. Also very flaccid low down in the rev range which mean around town you can be out accelerated by very prosaic machinery unless you work at it. I would sooner have a straight 6 any day of the week myself. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
2006 4dr Sedan turbocharged 274hp 2.3L I4
6-speed manual AWD
Very heavy, so the 274hp is strained a bit too much to really look good. see full Mazda Mazda6 review

2006 Mazda Mazda6 Tires: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2007 4dr Wagon 212-horsepower 3.0L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
My car has the 18" low profile tires, which are quite attractive. However, Mazda must have manufcatured magnets into these wheels, as I have had more flat tires in the car than any other, driven on the same roads. see full Mazda Mazda6 review
