What's It Like to Live With
Getting in and out of the Mazda6 is a little tricky if you are not too flexible due to the swooping front roof line and you do sit fairly high in the roof – some might notice the roof line whilst seated but the doors do open wide. Once inside finding the ideal driving position is easy – the steering wheel adjusts for rake and reach. There is plenty of room inside and it will seat five adults in reasonable comfort as the car is quite wide.
When reversing, the view through the rear-window is a little restricted with the small aperture and head restraints getting in your view.
No doubt you are looking for an estate car because you have a need to carry ‘something’, with the 5-seats in place to the belt line you can carry 506 litres with all the rear seats down this increases to 1648. This compares to the Volkswagen Passat Estate that can accommodate 603 litres seats up and 1731 litres with them down.
The 60:40 split rear seats lower remotely from two levers situated either side of the boot to give you a nearly flat loading deck. Our one criticism of the boot is that it isn’t the largest in its class and it is quite shallow, your dogs probably aren’t going to be hidden by the rear seats.
