The Mazda6 Wagon looks fantastic on the outside and is well-equipped and comfortable on the inside.

The second generation of the Mazda6 retired just five years into its life and in its place came the third generation model last year - promising more economy, driving flair, refinement, space and technology. Most of these claims, as we found out when we tested the Mazda6 Sedan previously, weren't misconceptions.

Just like before, the Mazda6 is also offered in another body style - a wagon - though the latter, which we have with us today, took a little longer to arrive here in Singapore.

But being the only Japanese marque to feature a wagon in its lineup, there's definitely lots to say about the new Mazda6 Wagon.

The Mazda6 Wagon is only available in the top-of-the-range Luxury trim and gets sporty 19-inch wheels as standard

Up close and Personal


Measuring 4,800mm x 1,840mm x 1,480mm (L x W x H), the Mazda6 Wagon is 65mm shorter but 30mm taller than its equivalent sedan brethren.

In essence, the wagon is pretty much the same as the sedan upon, which it's based in terms of its overall design and size. Where the models differ is behind the C-pillar, where the sedan's boot makes way for a curvier rear end on the wagon.


The interior of the Mazda6 Wagon is solidly made but is certainly not Mazda's most alluring internal effort, especially when swathed in monochromatic black and cut across by glossy burgundy trim. Nonetheless, the cabin scores highly for functionality, thanks to the logic and ease of the switches and controls.

While the Mazda6 Sedan's 80mm longer wheelbase elevates it almost into the large-car territory in terms of sprawling leg room, the Mazda6 Wagon is noticeably tighter in this respect but still has enough space to accommodate three full-sized Asian adults without much fuss.

The 451-litre boot space can be expanded to an enormous 1,593 litres by folding the rear seats down
