I've noticed this with just about every Mazda I've experienced. My 6 turns heads among my friends, coworkers, and family members, as did my first gen 3 when I had it. I think the thing Mazda just gets right is that their cars are fun to drive and look good while doing it, regardless of how "into cars" you are. My brother desperately wanted a truck until he drove my 6 and my father (who drives a base model Toyota Sienna) seems to really enjoy being in the car with me. While I don't really buy into the whole SUV/CUV thing, if I were to pick one as a daily driver it would have to be either a CX3 or a CX5.

Edit: I guess I should probably add (though this'll begin to convey how young I am), when shortly after I got my license and before I bought my first car, I spent a great deal of time driving my mom's 2017 Rav4 hybrid around. It wasn't bad by any stretch of the imagination, and the fuel economy and spaciousness didn't go unnoticed, but overall I didn't get the same feeling I get when in a Mazda. My 2014 6 feels more premium and modern despite being a good three years older and my friend's 2014 CX-5 feels the same way.
