It's not a shock to me, not at all. CUV sales have enjoyed sales increases over the past few years, while the typical "4-door sedan" sales have dropped.
Tastes have changed for years now, and the fact the CX-5 outsells everything else combined surprises me only in the fact that it hasn't happened sooner. The fact that Mazda is still investing in a revised '18 with a new engine choice tells me that they still give a sh*t about traditional sedan buyers as well as CUV buyers.
With the rumors from Ford that the Fusion and/or Taurus will be killed off, as well as the Impala at Chevy (arguably three of the BIGGEST names in sedan history), and a brand-new Accord and Camry trying to appeal to the Sport Sedan crowd, it's surprising (and frankly a relief) that Mazda would even bother to spice up the 6, instead of letting it die a slow death.
