Review
Mazda is widely known to have the best handling amongst the asian car makes and this face-lift is living up to its name.
Looks:
- Interior has been given a huge upgrade with right combination of suede and japanese wood along the dashboard improving the looks and feel. Definitely shine compared to the likes of camry or even skoda superb - where interior designs look dated and full of cheap plastic
- minor change to the exterior w a new grille. Coupe like design makes the car looka sporty. The only downside is lower headroom, particular for passengers at the rear.

Drive:
- 2L engine which i test drove was abit sluggish during pickup but it was ok after reaching a certain speed. A breeze to drive
- Significant provement to the NVH compared to the pre-FL version and mazda 3

Features:
- executive comes w great features like assisted braking, lane departure warning, bsm, HUD on windscreen etc
- missing sun roof for 2L exec which is a petty
- no 360 camera for this version

What I like
- awesome interior w comfortable leather seats
- packs w some good features
- good handling
- good improvement to NVH
- sporty exterior design

What I do not like
- skyactiv engine is known to be slightly underpowered at a cost of better fuel saving
- no sunroof
- no wagon for 2L engine

Review
Test drove superb and mazda 6 on the same day since both are around 130k. 2.0 was a complete turtle while 2.5 was also super sluggish. Handling was great, however cannot be compared to new G10 530i. If anyone is looking for this car, do not buy it. Boot space is minimal at just over 400 litres. For refernce superb has 600 litres. Even a thai made honda civic sedan has 520 litres. Cannot fit weekend prams, groceries or golf bags comfortably. Engine makes rough note when revved. Additionally, the strain on the engine made the car accelerate no faster. Limited headroom at the rear makes occupants 1.7m and above to take grab. Suspension was bumpy and could not take bumps as well as something like a b8 passat. Price was 139k for top spec 2.5. Features were no where near continental competitors. Poorly insulated cabin and cheaply built cabin was extremely disappointing. Would only buy this car if I'm broke. Please avoid it totally! Test drive one and you would understand what i mean.

What I like
Stunning looks, good handling, beautiful interior

What I do not like
Cheap materials used
Hollow sounding doors
Laggy engine
Terrible NVH
Disgustingly small boot
Poor mazda aftersales service

Review
This is my first car so my review only comes from my experience with the car for a few days and my previous rental and test drive experiences.

The Mazda 6 is a great balance among quality, performance and money. Among my shortlisted cars - Civic 1.5, Stinger and Mazda 6 2.0 Executive, I picked the Mazda 6 because it comes with enough power for SG streets, responded quickly enough for my acceleration needs, equipped with the premium feeling fit and finish and came with all the nice driving assistance features. And it's the cheapest among all three options. For a car that will last for at most 10 years in SG, I don't know why would anyone buy the Camry over this.

I would strongly recommend anyone who consider Mazda 6 to go for at least the Executive model for all the extra features. You'll regret buying the standard when you know you could have keyless entry, HUD, blind spot monitoring and a nice sound system with just a few thousand extra.

I especially like the HUD, it shows the speed, current speed limit and blind spot alert for both sides. It also shows navigation if you use built-in map but I've never got the map working.

What I like
Premium feeling material - leather, wood and soft-touch plastic
New front grille makes the exterior even more sleek
Dial-operated infotainment system
[Executive and above exclusive features]
Bose Sound System
HUD - Speed, Speed Limit and Blind Spot indicator
Keyless entry

What I do not like
No adaptive cruise control
Built-in map is a pain to use

Review
I just purchase Mazda 6 standard and got the car for less than 2 weeks. Overall, it is quite a decent car with all the basic feature. I like the exterior and interior design.

I regret not having the deluxe model with the auto lock when you away from your car and you can lock the car without taking out the key. The petrol consumption is quite high, at about 1 litre/ 9km. I run on 50% Highway 50% City.

What I like
exterior and Interior design
Auto Hold feature

What I do not like
High Petrol Consumption
No auto lock when away from the car
Alway need to take out the key when lock or unlock the car
Dashboard and aircon design (I have a problem to mount my phone on aircon)

Review
If you are looking to go on a car hunt, the Mazda showroom is one that you should not miss. The Mazda Range is one of quality and promises comfort. Test it out for yourself to believe. This is what I have to say after test driving the Mazda 6 and Mazda CX 9. These 2 models are the flagship models in their respective segments. With this belief in mind, I invited several car enthusiasts who drive the 2008 registered S5 just like me to go for a car hunt at Kia, Toyota, Audi, Nissan and Mazda. Some of us definitely got excited at what this legend can offer. I personally swayed towards the Audi SQ5. This review is written in a continental car driver perspective hence it may not apply to everyone.

What I like
Long wheelbase of vehicle
Elegant design
Many features to play with
Bespoke club upon purchase...(You Know what I mEAN)
desire programme

What I do not like
Fuel consumption
Pickup Speed
Build Quality as compared to other luxury sedans
