When we went to Florida for our family vacation we received a Mazda 6 to use on loan. The Mazda six was perfect because we each had a suitcase and personal bags and everything fit in the trunk easily. We even had room to spare, and I was shocked. I thought for sure someone was going to have to have a bag in a lap.
All of the features on the car are top of the line. The car came with lane assist and rain-sensing windshield wipers and Smart City Brake Support. Additional features include auto on/off headlights, an auto-dimming driver’s side mirror, heated side mirrors and an auto-dimming rear view mirror with Homelink. On GT, these features are standard. The actual name of the lane assistance is the Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) and we also had the Forward Obstruction Warning (FOW). The Mazda six we had also had a Sport Mode button, and that’s where the fun came from.
We were driving along the highway and then side streets on our way home from Universal Studios and every now and then Andrew would punch it. From one stop light to another he would just enjoy the power of the car. On this particular night, Zoe noticed what he was doing and she said, go faster daddy go faster. He took one look at me, like should I? And I gave him a look that said, Uh I don’t think so, and of course his heart went with the little girl in the back seat that wanted to go faster. SO yes, he punched it even harder. I was just praying there weren’t any cops around. But knowing my husband he probably just floored it to just above the speed limit and then we slowed back to the speed limit, just getting to that top speed as quickly as possible. Zoom Zoom right?
We have the Ford Fusion and I find that the Mazda 6 compares to it very well. It has the same safety and tech features and it reminded me of our car at home. It was comfy and roomy for the kids in the back and for me in the front. And of course there was plenty of leg room for my husband as well. I love that it’s so fun to drive. The room in the back, like I said was spacious and getting car seats in and out of it was really easy. I highly recommend the Mazda 6 because of the room, the comfort, the fun factor, and all of the safety features. Safety Features are so high tech now, it’s starting to get more about predicting the accident and I love that.
