Talking Cars with Consumer Reports #27: Models to Avoid
When you're spending your hard-earned money on a car, we think you deserve
a good one - and some models are better than others. This episode focuses
on those models we think you should avoid, presented by category. Don't
confuse this with a list of the "worst cars." Cars like the BMW 7-Series
and Ford Taurus certainly aren't among the worst cars out there, but they
are bad choices within their respective market segments.
As with the other shows, this episode will also be available through the

This week we look at Mazda's new CamCord fighter the all-new 2014 Mazda6.
Can Mazda pull off a solid mid-sized sedan after their divorce from the
Blue Oval? Joins us as we find out. We got our hands on the 2.5L iGrand
Touring version. Since iLoop had not been released officially yet be sure
to check back when we get our hands on that extremely mild hybrid system.
2014 brings Mazda's new corporate grille to the Mazda6, and I have to say,
it's a beautiful schnoz. I was a little worried the gaping maw would be too
large in person, (in pictures it looks enormous) but up-close-and-personal
it has to be the second most attractive front end after the Fusion. Beauty
is in the eye of the beholder, but during the week I was unable to find
anyone who disagreed with me. So my opinion reigns supreme. I'm worried
however, the proportions look perfect on the Mazda6, so what will the
Mazda3 be like? Why am I worried? Because if you park the Mazda6 next to a
CX-9 or CX-5, the crossovers look more cartoonish than if they park alone.
Just like your girlfriend seems pretty until you park her next to Megan
Fox. Although the 2014 model looks longer than the outgoing Mazda6, overall
length has been cut by about two inches. Adding "visual length" as well as
much-needed rear seat room, the wheelbase has been stretched by two inches
Mazda's nose may be a notch below the Ford in my style-guide, but out back
it's a different story. I find the Fusion's rump to be a little awkward.
It's almost as if Ford ran out of time and "hurried" the back end of their
family hauler. Not so with the Mazda6 which has a finished look from the
"raised eyebrow" tail lamps to the twin chrome Exhausts. Thanks to the best butt in the
business, I call the Ford v. Mazda beauty contest a tie. How about the
Koreans? I never warmed to the Sonata, but the Optima is aggressive and
attractive, just not as emotional as the Mazda6. Thanks to the low sales
volume, the Mazda is also a step outside the ordinary, something that
Something that has confused reporters in the past is Mazda's new
transmission. Some describe it as a hybrid between a dual clutch and a
traditional automatic, some have even suggested that it can "disable" the
torque converter. In addition to the 6-speed manual transmission you can
opt for the SkyActiv branded traditional automatic transaxle. Traditional?
What about the fancy clutches? Here's what Mazda did.
Lock-up torque converters are nothing new, having been introduced in 1949,
but in our age of efficiency companies are using them more aggressively. By
locking the impeller and turbine (input and output) of the torque
converter, you increase efficiency by cutting most of the impelling losses
in the torque converter (there are still some because it's still spinning,
but it's greatly reduced). Old transmissions only did this in their final
gear and relatively infrequently. Modern automatics like GM/Ford's 6-speed
transaxle spend about half their time in lock-up and will engage the
locking "clutch" in most gears. Mazda's new slushbox is programmed with an
aggressive lockup agenda and will lock in every gear. In addition, it
spends more time in lockup (80% or more) than a competitive unit on the
same driving cycle. The result is a more connected 1:1 relationship between
the engine and wheels than you find in a CamFusCord.
2014 Mazda6 Drive and Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2014 Mazda6 is one of the most
attractive, front-drive, four-door vehicles out on the road today. The
Skyactive, 2.5-liter engine is wonderfully efficient returning 30 mpg
combined while providing enough power to make one smile. This is a special
car and Mazda deserves kudos for building it! In another TFLcar review,
Nathan finds out just how fast the new 2014 Mazda6 will go from 0-60 MPH.

The Mazda6 Tourer takes on its rivals, which include the Ford Mondeo
Estate, Honda Accord Tourer and Hyundai i40 Tourer with sharp looks and
excellent running costs. It's lower, longer and wider than the previous
model, uses less fuel and has the choice of 2.0-litre petrol or 2.2-litre
turbodiesel engines. With three
equipment levels, the SE, SE-L and Sport, it's well equipped with xenon
headlights, 17-inch alloy wheels and a 5.8-inch touchscreen fitted across
the range. There's also excellent safety technology, too, including an
emergency auto-brake that automatically stops the car to avoid low-speed
collisions, as well as radar cruise control that maintains a safe distance
from the vehicle ahead on the motorway.

No longer the by-product of the marriage between Ford and Mazda, the
all-new 2014 Mazda 6 is now strictly all Mazda. With its own unique
platform, sleek "Kodo" styling, and the best fuel-efficiency in it's class.
The third generation Mazda6 will undoubtedly make it to more shoppers'
short list when choosing a mid-size family sedan. Let's just hope the
company sees fit to up the fun factor with more power in the coming years.

http://www.autobytel.com/mazda/?id=32972 Mazda North America Director of
Design Derek Jenkins takes us for a tour of the Mazda booth at the 2013

called the Vector 3 and is this is all about the very subtle ghost graphics
that enhance the lines of the car. The Vector 3 has large rims and has been
lowered with an H&R suspension system.
Mazda Club Sport 6 -- The Mazda 6 has been out for about a year now but the
SEMA show is really the first time Mazda has had the chance to give the car
a sport tune. The first thing done is a custom aero kit which enhances the
stance of the Mazda 6. The wheels are 20-inch units with a Brembo Brake Kit
hiding behind them. The floating tailspoiler is another great custom touch.
Mazda Ceramic 6 -- This car is all about the exterior which features a
ceramic white flat paint job. This Mazda 6 features a very unique interior
that was inspired by furniture and fashion design. 2 different types of
leather were woven together to give a couture quality feel.

New Mazda 6 2013 - Which? first drive
e=youtube_channel&utm_content=mazda62013&utm_term=description The 2013
Mazda 6 is one the most fuel-efficient cars in its class -- and one of the
best-looking. Can it tempt buyers from the all-conquering BMW 3 Series?
Mazda's flagship large car is available as a four-door saloon or an estate,
called the Tourer. Unlike the old 6, there's no five-door hatchback --
apparently buyers see saloons as more upmarket.
Prices for diesel models start at £21,795 for the 148bhp 2.2-litre saloon,
rising to £28,045 for the 173bhp 2.2 Tourer auto in fully-loaded Sport Nav
Petrol versions are significantly cheaper, at £19,595 for the entry-level
143bhp 2.0 saloon and £24,865 for the top-spec 163bhp 2.0 Tourer.

What I have to say about the 2014 6: Mazda has redesigned the 6 for 2014
and it was needed. The previous generation 6 was falling short in sales
compared to the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, however Mazda knows that it
is highly unlikely that the 6 will meet up to the Accord and Camry. The 6
is the BMW of midsize sedans, which it really does feel like a BMW which is
pretty good. Material quality is also up for 2014 and everything seems well
put together and not cheap. The Electronics/Technology is good in the 6,
but the Navigation unit still remains behind the times, however you do have
Pandora now. The engine is also super fuel efficent which is good in order
to compete in the midsize sedan class, the Nissan Altima is almost head to
head with the 6 in fuel efficency. On top of all that, the most important
facotr that Mazda uses to lure in buyers is the zoom zoom driving dyanmics
and it does gice alot of feedback which is very important. All in all way
better than the previous generation.
2014 Mazda6 Test Drive & Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/mazda/mazda6/2014/?id=32972 The 2014 Mazda6
combines a technological advanced SKYACTIV engine, refined exterior, and
exciting driving characteristics into one great all around package. This
3rd generation Mazda6 builds on the success of its predecessors while still
maintaining an affordable base price at $20,880. If you have to buy a new
sedan then might as well go for one that looks great!
The mid-sized sedan segment is not very exciting even though it is quite
competitive. Most vehicles in this category all have the same styling and
can get lost in a sea of the mundane. But the 2014 Mazda6 could be the
exception. Mazda is a passionate car company looking to make fun
The exterior of the Mazda6 has been completely redesigned. Gone is the
smiley grille replaced by a much more vertical and pronounced piece. This
great new look can be seen on other Mazda vehicles, most notably the CX-5.
While most manufacturers are moving to the cab forward design, Mazda has
instead gone for a cab rearward look by stretching the sheet metal. The
lines on the side seem to keep flowing. This car is not just about form;
the new model also uses a lot more high strength steel. Mazda has made a
conscious effort to convert the Mazda6 from a regular mid-sized car into a
premium car. From the back the simple design looks very upscale, almost
like a Lexus ES.
On the inside Mazda has done a lot to compliment the outside. The gauges
and instrument panel have all been updated. The 2014 Mazda6 is available in
3 trim levels: Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring. The higher the trim level
the more standard features you get.
You probably have heard about SKYACTIV technology on many of the new Mazda
vehicles. This powerplant has now made its way onto the 2014 Mazda6 making
the car more fuel efficient. The engine is a 2.5 liter 4-cylinder 184 horsepower and 185
lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is excellent at 26 MPG in the city and 38
MPG on the highway.
The 2014 Mazda6 can satisfy a whole range of automotive shoppers; from
those who just need a commuter car to the enthusiast looking for a fun
