Mazda 6 2020

The 2020 Mazda 6 range of configurations is currently priced from $31,990. Our most recent review of the 2020 Mazda 6 resulted in a score of 8.1 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Senior Journalist Richard Berry had this to say at the time: Mazda6 wagon, with its impressive dynamics, great practicality and value. The Atenza grade adds another level of luxury but also look at the GT, which has the same engine and an almost identical features list. Oh, and you don't have to put a bed in the back like I did, but it's good to know you can.

This is what Richard Berry liked most about this particular version of the Mazda 6: Enjoyable to drive, Great value, Excellent safety equipment

The 2020 Mazda 6 carries a braked towing capacity of up to 1600 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

The Mazda 6 is also known as the Mazda Atenza (China and Japan) in markets outside Australia.

Mazda 6 2020 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Mazda 6 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Does the 3rd generation of the Mazda 6 have unreliable in transmission?

    Mazda’s 6 has always had a pretty good reputation in the trade for its reliability and durability, but globally, there have been a few concerns with the automatic transmission. The first of those is a situation where the transmission goes into limp-home mode. At that point, it can suffer slurred shifts and a lack of acceleration. It doesn’t seem a common complaint in Australia, but it’s reckoned to be caused by the transmission fluid becoming contaminated with small iron particles (possibly swarf from the production process) becoming attracted to the magnetic sensors inside the transmission. At that point, the sensors lose the plot and the information going to the computer becomes garbled.

    The other thing seen (mostly in the US) has been a whining noise from the transmission. Inspections have shown this to be caused by a damaged bearing in the transmission, possibly the victim of misalignment of the gearbox casing. Again, it’s not a common fault showing up here.

    Overall, the Mazda 6 seems one of the better bets out there in reliability terms.

  • Mazda 4 - A bigger hatchback than the 3?

    Mazda is unlikely to increase the number of its passenger car models, given the contracting nature of such body styles in favour of crossovers and SUVs.

    Also, note that a CX-4 has existed in China for a number of years, slotting tightly between the CX-3 and CX-5 as a sleeker coupe version of the latter, so if you do see a '4' (or, more likely, a '40') on the tailgate of a Mazda in the future, it might be sat on an SUV-shaped rather than hatchback-shaped five-door.

  • Mazda 7 - Will Mazda build a bigger sedan than the 6?

    Probably not, sadly.

    The slower-than-anticipated sales of the Mazda6 series over the past decade, combined with Mazda's hesitation to replace the existing, nine-year-old model, suggests that there is not a larger sedan in the pipeline.

    However, with Mazda marching upmarket and its ties with Toyota strengthening, a joint-venture project with Toyota or even Lexus, using Mazda's new rear-drive platform and inline six-cylinder engine range, may make a model-sharing premium flagship – like a Mazda7 or even Mazda9 – a possibility.

    But please don't hold your breath on this one because it is merely conjecture on our behalf.

  • Mazda 9 - Will we ever see a successor to the 929?

    Mazda is unlikely to introduce a sedan larger than the Mazda6, due to the declining sales of larger sedans globally in favour of SUVs.

    However, with Mazda marching upmarket and its ties with Toyota strengthening, a joint-venture project with Toyota or even Lexus, using Mazda's new rear-drive platform and inline six-cylinder engine range, may make a model-sharing luxury flagship – a modern-day 929 in other words – a possibility.

    But there are currently no plans that we know of pertaining to such a model, sadly.

    We hope this helps.
