2014 Mazda6

The 2014 Mazda6 recently won Popular Mechanic’s Car of the Year award. What makes the occasion so interesting is that Mazda, a small company in the automotive industry when compared to behemoths like Ford and Honda, was able to engineer, design, and build a wonderful world-class automobile.

When Mazda and Ford ended their longstanding relationship, Mazda set out on its own to wholly design their next round of product offerings. Many in the industry were curious as to what Mazda would do now that it lost many of the resources of a large automotive company; namely the sharing of platforms and technology.

One of those new designs is the 2014 Mazda 6.

Combining excellent styling in a usually drab segment, the Mazda6 looks and feels like a car thousands of dollars more expensive than what it is. Add in Mazda’s unbeatable performance, and you have a car that not only looks expensive, but also is fun to drive.

These attributes are why Popular Mechanics bestowed their Car of the Year award on the Mazda6.

“It won because Mazda engineers set out to make a truly great car and succeeded,” wrote Popular Mechanics’ automotive editors.

Now that it is independent, Mazda was able to design a car and an engine specific to the Mazda6. Packing a 184-horsepower engine and either a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission, the Mazda6 drives and handles like a sports car.

No other family sedan in its class can create such an engaging experience. Add in the fact that it can come with all of today’s technological goodies like adaptive cruise control, Bluetooth, automatic high beams, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and forward-collision warning, and achieve 40 mpg on the highway, the Mazda6 is a truly attractive package.

With a starting price of $21,675, the 2014 Mazda6 is an undeniable value. With many cars losing any sense of excitement when pushed hard, the Mazda6’s beautifully styled interior and exterior, and engaging performance rightly earns the Popular Mechanics Car of the Year award.
