Review: 2018 Mazda6 Signature – Part 5

So I’ve come to the end of my week long review of the 2018 Mazda6 Signature and I walk away from this review very, very impressed. By that I mean that every aspect of this vehicle impressed me. The interior, exterior, driving experience, everything is above and beyond what one should expect from a mid sized car. The folks over at Toyota and Honda might want to take note because to be frank, they now have a competitor that they should really be concerned about. Besides the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, you can cross shop it against the Nissan Altima, Hyundai Sonata, and Kia Optima to name a few competitors. None of which in my opinion match what this Mazda6 has to offer.

My final fuel economy was 9.1 L per 100KM’s which was outstanding since I didn’t make any attempt to drive in a fuel economy. Though I will note that my average fuel economy went up to 10 L per 100KM’s because I took a trip into downtown Toronto rush hour traffic. But a trip to the Oro African Methodist Episcopal Church which is a National Historic Site of Canada brought it back down:

Given that there’s a really fun to drive 2.5L turbo engine under the hood, the fuel economy that I got this week is pretty impressive. Mazda has a winner in the mid sized class and anyone who drives it will likely be impressed enough to buy it rather than one of the usual market leaders. Especially in the Signature trim level which is class above. You can expect to pay $40,895 including freight for the Signature trim that I had this week. But the Mazda6 starts at $28,930 which is well in line with its competition.

For all those reasons do not be surprised if you start to see many more Mazda6’s on the roads than you are used to seeing in the not so distant future. Also, don’t be surprised if this vehicle ends up being an IT Nerd Award winner at the end of the year as it is a strong contender for that award. Again.
