Mazda’s KODO – Soul of Motion needs no introduction. Even in wagon guise, to be honest, the all new Mazda 6 2018 is incredibly beautiful.

3. Mazda 6 2018 Philippines: Interior

Stepping inside, we are welcomed by a typical Mazda cabin. If this is not your first Mazda, everything inside still feels intuitive. Otherwise, if the 6 is completely new to you, that feel will last longer.

Leather seats are both supportive and snug. Besides, the padded knee bolster is a remarkable feature in every Mazda, including the said car, which makes your daily rides so comfy. Not only that, it is also easy to brace yourself when taking corners.

Once you’re fixed in the driver’s seat, all controls fall into your clutches and access to the functions is relatively natural. As for the steering wheel, while the predecessor’s tiller is somewhat small, it’s perfectly sized and good to hold on this model.

Mazda Connect system has been undergoing generations, but it remains unaltered. Worse still, some Mazda users are never able to find the way to turn it off. Even when you’ve already turned off the AC, there is no way to stop the audio system manually but muting the music then turning the ignition off. Anyway, the Bose speakers emit good sound and the AC is cool enough.

4. Mazda 6 2018 Philippines: Engine & Performance

Like the sedan model, the Mazda 6 wagon 2018 is armed with the same high-efficiency 2.5-liter SKYACTIV-G direct injection engine. Some of you might have been puzzled over how the wagon body configuration affects the car performance. However, its ride and handling is almost no different when compared to the sedan.

Despite the size and weight, the 6 performance still leaves you with mouth agape and in awe. No matter where it goes, it let you maneuver accordingly.

The all new Mazda 6 2018 is available in two driving modes: normal and sport. Once you find the default mode a little bit tranquil, shift to sport status to enjoy more fun-to-drive driving experience. At that time, you should expect an average fuel consumption of 7.0 km/L.

Nevertheless, as you hit the power band of around 2,000 rpm, you may hear a V6-like howl coming from the hood when the mid-size wagon rockets towards. In actual fact, there’re only 4 cylinders in front, yet you will ponder whether there are 2 more.

In addition, we also constantly brood about the set of 45-series 19-inch tires. Although low profile does not influence the ride comfort, better still, they will shield the passengers from potholes and ruts; we are not sure how it can survive serious obstacles in the path.

7. Mazda 6 2018 Philippines: Verdict

At the end of the day, what do you make of the Mazda 6 wagon 2018? Use your imagination! Driving the car every day is no less than an act of joy and comfort. With a key fob, get in it every morning and unlock the doors by pressing a button on the door handle, slide in, step on the brakes and start the car. Connect your phone to the audio system to enjoy music, switch the electronic parking brake on, shift in Drive and now, you’re off. On rainy days, sensors will automatically active the headlamps and wipers. In case you go astray near the broken paint lines, a rumbling warning will nudge you to back to your lane while the steering wheel will give some resistance. All of these features, in spite of being a bit disconcerting at the beginning, you will finally be used to them.
