  • Review: 2023 Mazda 6 20th Anniversary - Timeless class and style, but is age catching up?

    As they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder – but even for the most beautiful of people (or things); looks can tire, most times something newer and fresher comes along and what was once beautiful now becomes mundane and all too familiar. One could argue though, with its smooth and sexy lines, and sleek proportions, that the (GJ-generation) 2023 Mazda 6 Sedan looks as ageless as it did 5 years ago – if it isn’t broken, why fix it? So, in 2023 we now have the Mazda 6 20th Anniversary edition

  • Used (GJ) Mazda 6 for under RM 80k - Japan's sharpest large sedan takes the fight to the Germans; how much to maintain and repair?

    Think large, Japanese sedan and it’s a beige assault on the senses with a hit below the belt by mundanity and slap in the face from a lack of imagination. Mazda doesn’t play by those rules though and the third-generation Mazda 6 is the anti-christ against its vanilla contemporary peers. It drove better than it looked, which is saying a lot considering that Kodo-design language made for one suave sedan. Unlike its peers that aged like milk, the Mazda 6 crosses into the decade-mark this year looki

  • Plans for RWD, next-gen Mazda 6 canned, CX-60 platform not suitable

    Rumours and speculations of a rear-wheel drive, next-generation Mazda 6 have been around since the Hiroshima-based company showcased its new FR architecture and inline-6 engines way back in November 2020.

  • Mazda 6 no longer on sale in Japan - making way for all-new RWD 2023 model or parts shortage?

    First launched in 2012, the Mazda 6 is the oldest model in Mazda’s product line-up. Sure, it has several updates but despite its age, the Mazda 6 is surprisingly competent against younger rivals like the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, and Volkswagen Passat. The refreshed interior hides the Mazda 6’s age very well and makes the 10-year Mazda’s cabin the most expensive-looking of all. The updated GVC Plus vehicle stabilization measure makes the ride so much more comfortable ride for the passengers, e

Over the past two years, Japanese media have been reporting rumours that Mazda is developing the next-gen Mazda 6 and it wouldn’t just have an expected pretty face. The planned successor wa

    Mazda has made no qualms about their intentions to take on the likes of BMW and will be doing so with the next generation Mazda 6 adopting a more premium, rear-wheel drive layout. However, a tuner from China lacked the patience for this and instead built his own RWD Mazda 6 that’s powered by a Lexus V8 of all things.
