The Mazda6 has been available to buyers since its launch back in 2002 and has been beating the competition from the day one. Unlike other typical mid-size family sedans, throughout the years this model has shown a lot of character with both its excellent driving experience and attractive looks. In addition, Mazda wanted to make sure that the 2017 model is affordable with the starting price of $21,945. With such characteristics, it really is no surprise that many are eager to check out the 2017 Mazda6 Grand Touring. All in all, Mazda created an outstanding vehicle which might become the best mid-size family car.

The car will run on a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter inline-four engine which has 184 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque. The transmission is a six-speed automatic that frankly isn’t all that good, and the vehicle has a front-wheel-drive.
Unlike the Grand Touring, the lower trims, Sport and Touring are available with a six-speed manual, which is a real shame since we think it is a far better choice.
The 2017 Mazda6 will feature the steering wheel from the new CX-9, and Japanese company has been working hard on noise reduction. So, it is needless to say that Mazda wants to improve the third generation and not let it slip.
If we were to be picky, we would say that the rear seats are a bit snug for some people. Also, like many new Mazda models, the vehicle will not be available with a V6 engine. Nevertheless, this is an excellent family sedan, and we are looking forward to seeing it in on the road.
