Mazda's renowned reliability and build quality combined with the Zoom, Zoom, Zoom factor ensures that you will not be disappointed. The materials used are of a high standard and there is very little to fault.

Value For Money

The Mazda6 2.0 TS2 Diesel is very good value for money and at £17,700 offers a high level of standard equipment. The diesel engine is both refined and powerful whilst returning an impressive 43.5 mpg combined figure.

Conclusion

The Mazda6 2.0 TS2 Diesel is a very competent family/executive car that offers excellent fuel economy with little if any compromise in performance. Mazda have done an excellent job with both the exterior and interior styling and it is well worth a look if you want to stay away from more run of the mill manufacturers such as Ford, Toyota and Vauxhall.
