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
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
