Verdict

The car that began Mazda's current fixation with its 'zoom-zoom' advertising, the Mazda6 transformed the image of the brand from one that sold worthy-but-dull cars (MX-5 apart) to one that produces a range of cars people could become genuinely excited by. Class-leading handling along with excellent value make the Mazda6 one of the best cars in its class.

Upgrades in 2005 made the Mazda6 more sporty looking, and offered a smarter interior and power increases for 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines.
