2017 Mazda 6 Skyactiv-G 2.5 AT6 test drive: Sure shot hipster
The sales underdog in the mid-size sedan segment has some stern opposition to face but that doesn't make it any less apt for the job
The Mazda 6 faces the chagrin of having to compete against sacred monsters - I'm looking at the Volkswagen Passat, Skoda Superb and Ford Mondeo - but it also has to outclass rising pretenders like Renault's Talisman and ambitious newcomers like the new Opel Insignia.
