2009 model year changes

The Mazda6 is redesigned for 2009. The new sedan wears attractive, aggressive sheet metal with pronounced, crisply cornered front fenders. The car is seven inches longer overall and rides on a wheelbase that is four inches longer than the previous Mazda6. Gone from the line-up is the 5-door hatchback. Two new power plants motivate the Mazda6: The base 2.5L 4-cylinder delivers 170 hp and replaces the 156-hp 2.3L unit, while a 272-hp 3.7L V6 takes over for the old 212-hp 3.0L V6. The 4-cylinder returns an estimated 21 mpg city/30 miles per gallon highway, while the V6 achieves an estimated 17 city/25 hwy mpg. Standard comfort and safety amenities abound, and four trim levels allow for a driving experience from sedate but sophisticated to zoom-zoom. Prices range from $18,500 to $28,260.
