If all cars were the same, the world would be a boring place. The car is primarily a transportation device, but it’s also a vehicle of expression. If you don’t care about it, you’ll get something reasonable and anonymous. If you do, you may get a sports car. But if you have kids and don’t want to fork over an unreasonable amount of money for something enjoyable, what do you do? What kind of car do you buy?
The answer might lie with the 2014 Mazda6 midsize sedan, an all-new car this year that aims to answer why we can’t have our cake and eat it, too? It gets good fuel economy, is sporty, is safe, and can seat five people? But it’s never going to outsell the Toyota Camry or Honda Accord. Mazda shouldn’t bemoan that fact, however. Read our Road Test of the 2014 Mazda6 sedan to find out why.
