    Default New Mazda6 MPS

    I've just seen an advert for this car, and I'm pretty impressed with it. What do you guys & gals think? -

    Mazda6 2.3 MZR DISI Turbo 4WD

    260PS & 380Nm
    0-62 - 6.6 secs
    Top Speed - 149mph

    Urban - 20.0 mpg
    Extra Urban - 35.3mpg
    Combined - 27.7mpg

    Price - £23,950


    I initially thought from the model name that it was a diesel, but apparently it's a petrol. Obviously the mpg figures confirm this.

    Definately a contender for the VXR in my opinion. I really think GM need to get going with development of a 4WD gearbox to give their cars the edge.

    Discuss?

    Nice motor. has the edge with being 4 wheel drive.

    Had a look at a Vectra VXR this morning in the showroom at Vantage Bury, I wasn't impressed at £25K.

    Vauxhall should of made 4x4 for all the VXR range IMO. Thats why they will never be a serious contender at the moment.

    FWD does have limits.

    But the Calibra 4x4 gearbox and transfer boxes were a nightmare.

    Mazda is mainly FWD that biases to the rear as needed. Like the quattro system.

    There's always the HSV four wheel drive version of the Monaro:

    Only problem with the Mazda is it's too understated.
