As a newbie here, I didn't go through all 24 pages, but I just bought a 6. I looked, shopped and researched most of the competition.
I also looked at the CX-5 and comparable CUV's.
In my estimation, the 2017 Mazda6 is every bit as current as anything else out there.
Yes, Toyota and Honda released a new Camry and Accord, but have you actually looked at those things? Fugly, to say the least.
The Accord also dropped their V6 and coupe. Base drivetrain is now a 90 cubic inch (1.5L) turbo, through a CVT.
Would you really choose that combo over the Mazda 2.5L natural aspirated engine and 6 speed auto? Not me.
From what I've heard, a new new ground up Mazda 6 is still a little ways away. I believe they'll just tweak the current design a bit to keep it fresh.
That's what they've been doing every year.
