If you wait for the turbo diesel 6, then there's a significant difference, although we are not sure yet what that exactly will be. More torque, better mpg, a more unique version of the 6. That's what I'm waiting on. I've driven both the 6 and the 3. The 3 is tight feeling in the front seat and the minor differences in leg room and hip room in the back seat make a big difference. Also the 3's steering isn't tuned the same, it's more disconnected feeling than the 6.

Don't get me wrong, on paper the 3 grand touring is only a minor bit of spec different from the 6, and it's certainly a great car. but in practice the 6 just has a different and more engaging spirit to it.

And again... Mmmm diesel... Soooo looking forward to that.

Current ride:
(ugh) 2004 Suzuki XL7
Past inspiration:
1993 MX6
Just waiting on:
2014 Mazda6 2.2 diesel, black on black Grand Touring
