Click above for high-res gallery of the 2009 Mazda6

Mazda recently sent out a survey request to potential customers, the purpose of which was to allow these survey takers to build a 2009 Mazda6 with whatever options, packages and colors they wanted so that the automaker could gauge which will be most popular when the car goes on sale. Unfortunately, Mazda was smart and the survey can only be taken once, but one person recorded all the information he saw and posted it on the Mazda6club.com forum. His notes after the jump give us an idea of what trim levels, options and pricing will be available when the car does go on sale, though none of it is written in stone.

It appears that the 2009 Mazda6 will be available in two basic versions: the Mazda6 i that comes with a 170-hp 2.5L four-cylinder with VVT and the more powerful Mazda6 s that's motivated by a 272-hp 3.7L V6. The Mazda6 i will be offered in SV, Sport, Touring and Grand Touring models, while the Mazda6 s will be available as Sport, Touring and Grand Touring. As far as pricing goes, the Mazda6 i SV kicks things off with a base price of $19,850 while the Mazda6 s Grand Touring tops the range with a base price of $29,150. That's quite a large range that should satisfy the wants and needs of most buyers, and features like Xenon headlamps, Bluetooth, a Blind Spot Monitoring system, rain-sensing wipers and wheels up to 18-inches in diameter should position the new Zoom-Zoom sedan well against its mid-size family sedan competition.

Check out all the packages, standard features and pricing info after the jump, but remember they may not be the same when the car officially goes on sale. Thanks for the tip, Joel!

      21/29 on a 4 cyl? I thought Mazda would do better and I like the euro version better as well.
      • 6 Years Ago
      "Gorgeous" is what comes to my mind when I see this baby. (And it sounds to me like a joke that Jaguar is the one who has chosen that word as their motto.)
      • 6 Years Ago
      Am I out of touch, or is $29K too much for this vehicle?
        • 6 Years Ago
        This is right on target with Camry, Accord, Malibu, and any other car int he segment. They start or just under 20K, top at 30000+ with all the options checked.

        Of course, rebates are what I would be waiting for - I almost bought a MazdaSPEED6 for about 5K or so under MSRP.
        • 6 Years Ago
        The equivalent top trim of the current model is $28,400 including freight.

        Realistically, they'll be selling for 4-5K under sticker just like the current one does.
        • 6 Years Ago
        This isn't with all the boxes checked. This is just the base price of the highest model.

        The highest-end Accord model bases at $28,050, and it comes with a moonroof, which will certainly be about $1K more on the Mazda. No Bluetooth or Xenons though, but it does get 19/29 (268HP), which is a big step up in mpg.

        I don't get quite how Mazda can charge more for their car than Honda can. Honda is a more premium name than Mazda.
      • 6 Years Ago
      So with the inevitable 3k cash add-ons for the Mazda6 and S-plan pricing, one is looking at about 23-24k for a loaded Mazda6 with V6? Not bad.
      • 6 Years Ago
      29150 better be zoom zooming at all 4 wheels...or at least i wish :-)
      • 6 Years Ago
      Styling, size, performance and content-wise, the new Mazda6 s Grand Touring competes more closely with the Acura TL than it does the Accord. When you do that comparison, the Mazda has anywhere between a $2200 (the TL comes with std moonroof, the 6 is a $1800 option, otherwise, the difference is even greater) and $4000 price advantage. The 6 also has more HP, 272 vs 258, has one more gear in the auto box, and Blind SPot Monitoring.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I agree but it lacks the cache of the Acura name. Some snooty people wont even go into a Mazda dealer because the name lacks exclusivity. Heck, the only reason Lexus, Infinity, and Acura even exist is due to this tendency. No Mazda no matter how good will compete with the luxury brands - think Millenia and 929.
          • 6 Years Ago
          I suppose you meant to say "cachet."

          Acura is still aspiring to have _cachet_ in the US, while Lexus and Infiniti have fared relatively better.

          I see Mazda, like Subaru, as more interesting alternatives to what other Japanese marques have to offer - and both seem to still appeal to those who can afford much more expensive choices.

          Back to the topic, I don't see any problems with the pricing.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Nice looking car.

      Too bad the RX-8 isn't available with 272 HP.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Again, why must stereos, homelink, steering wheel mounted audio controls and such be part of packages? These should all be dealer installed options. Anymore it's impossible to get the features I want in a car because the manufacturers force that stupid leather and wood grain luxoboat packages on the buyers just to get the desirable features. Sorry, but here in the heat of Texas, I don't want leather under any circumstance. And while I always want a moonroof, $1,800 is overpriced by about 50%.

      And what's the obsession with the stupid seams across the front of the hood that so manufacturer's are obsessed with (i.e. Toyota in particular). Why not extend the hood another inch and a half and integrate the seam into the grill. It would probably also be cheaper to manufacture. ...and while I'm bashing, the lines from those front fenders simply don't flow with the remainder of the car. But it really doesn't matter since you continuously refuse to make this in a 2 door coupe or 2 door hatchback. And sorry, but the MX5 is too feminine and dainty and the RX8 is simply to bizarre and impractical.

        • 6 Years Ago
        Current 6 owner here. I'm in the market right now for a new vehicle and was looking at a 3 Hatchback to replace mine. I signed up for the new 6 updates and got this email last night also.

        Not sure I understand why you want dealer installed options. That leaves dealers free to charge what they want, and I definitely don't want my dealer charging what they want for necessities like stereo, cruise, etc. It's important to note that Mazda takes the same approach as Honda does to some degree with it's trim levels. SV for Mazda is like VP for Honda. Each level has some things you can't get on lower trims. All Mazda6 trim levels have steering wheel audio controls, side airbags, and auto headlights...a few amenities not often standard in this class.

        The option packages are decievingly listed on the post...the moonroof package also includes a bose audio system and rear parking sensors if I remember correct. Also there is a convenience package for touring models that adds xenon lights and a few other items to the mix

      Keeping this puppy cost effective is a real chore, as it's the only one besides the 'bu that's built with UAW labor, in MI. I have an '04 wagon, bought $7k under list, am fairly happy except for its turning circle and funky dash lights that wash out a dawn/dusk. Mileage a little short of Toyota for equal size/weight vehicle. I was surprised to learn that Mazda sold only 16k wagons in four years.
      • 6 Years Ago
      $1800 !! for a sunroof !!

      Shazam!
        • 6 Years Ago
        Mazda very rarely includes JUST a sunroof as an add on. Probably includes some stereo or convienece package.
      • 6 Years Ago

      $29K. Nope. It isn't there in my mind. And my mind is all that matters when I'm buying.

      I'll take a Genesis 3.8 with 300 and all those goodies for UNDER $29K with Hyundai's guaranteed incentives.
