2005 Mazda6 Overview

2005 Mazda6 Sport Wagon A solid V6, slick shifting five-speed is a great combination in any vehicle, but how does it handle? The weight of the Mazda6 doesn't make it as fun as a Mazda3, but this is clearly the mid-size wagon for the enthusiast-driver. Even if there was a wagon offered by other makes of popular midsize sedans, the Mazda6 is clearly the winner in chassis dynamics. It's hard to shake the sensation of driving a performance car. The tossable chassis tracks well, and the only limitation seems to be where the rubber meets the road, in the OEM tires that is. They are more than adequate for most situations, but it's obvious the platform has more to offer. The Mazda6 handles predictable and safely at the limit. The balance is exemplary. How exciting it is to coerce this family wagon into a graceful four-wheel drift. Definitely do not try this at home, or more appropriately, with your average midsize wagon. 2005 Mazda6 Sport Wagon There are almost no compromises in utility or comfort, even with the sporty dynamics of the Mazda6 wagon. The interior is hushed at highway speed. It?s remarkably quiet. Not that the quietness really matters, as our test was equipped with the optional Bose seven speaker stereo. Under the rear hatch, which we?ll get to later, is a subwoofer placed inside the rim of the spare tire. Oh, this system made all the more tempting to thump along in traffic to Geto Boys, Danger Doom, or maybe a nice bluegrass Metallica cover. The Bose system is the best option for the audiophile without the patience for a do-it-yourself upgrade. We?re certainly not qualified to review every detail of the audio system, but at all volume levels the sound is clear with smooth response. Plus, the extra oomph from the subwoofer is satisfying. The true test of a good system is how it doesn?t hurt your ears at high volumes. After cruising around at criminal volume levels, our hearing seems intact. Huh, what?s that? Seriously, we give two big thumbs up to the Mazda?s Bose system. 2005 Mazda6 Sport Wagon 2005 Mazda6 Sport Wagon Besides a kicking subwoofer, the rear of the Mazda is equipped with spacious accommodations for all your goodies. Groceries, for amateurs! A trip to Home Depot, no problem! It?s nice to have the ability to carry the goods and rock the back roads with abandon. The interior accommodations are also very appropriate for the Mazda. Mazda?s designers tried to carry the zoom-zoom into the interior. Unfortunately, it?s hard to think of how superior the Mazda3?s interior is. The fact that the Mazda6 could be referred to as the first wave in Mazda?s revitalization makes it a little easier to justify the design and finish differences between …
