For 2013, Mazda has discontinued the MAZDA6 s Touring Plus trim, leaving only a single model (the s Grand Touring) for those who want the V6 engine. Four-cylinder MAZDA6 i Touring Plus and i Grand Touring models also get larger 18-inch wheels.
Sporty driving feel; responsive steering; passenger and cargo space; racy instrument-panel design; strong acceleration from the V6
Compared to other mid-size sedans, the MAZDA6 has sportier, more overt styling, as well as a driving demeanor to match--with more of an emphasis on crisp steering and responsive handling and a more engaging experience altogether. V6 's' models provide surprisingly quick acceleration, while 4-cylinder MAZDA6 'i' models are among the few in this class still offering a manual transmission. The MAZDA6's interior is also a refreshing departure from the boilerplate look of so many of today's larger sedans, and rear seating space and trunk space won't let you down.
