The Mazda6 Tourer has great appeal as a capable all-rounder. The drive is exciting and responsive, yet the estate also performs impeccably as a practical family vehicle. This is all tied up by stunning good looks and a functional cabin that only enhances the overall experience.
Like its saloon sibling, the Tourer has been styled in line with Mazda's KODO: Soul of Motion design language. Its longer shape features a muscular front end where narrow headlamps flank a deep, chrome-framed grille. Front fog lights and alloy wheels as standard add to the car's sporty appeal, and the inclusion of daytime running lights help the car leave a big impression, day and night.
The same sporty character found on the outside stretches into the cabin, which Mazda has arranged for simplicity and to better engage you with every corner and straight. The ergonomic layout means every control is close at hand and situated exactly where you would expect it to be, with premium soft-touch materials and satin chrome blending these functions together. For passengers there's ample space in which to stretch out and relax, while road and wind noise is kept to an absolute minimum. There's plenty of room for luggage, too, as with the rear bench upright you can carry up to 522 litres of luggage in the boot. Folding it flat increases this to an impressive 1,664 litres.
Also located in the cockpit is a variety of cutting-edge technology. Multiple functions are incorporated by the Mazda Multimedia System, such as audio from the CD player and route details from the Mazda navigation system. USB connectivity and an Auxiliary (AUX) input jack enable you to connect external devices, with all features controlled via the integrated 5.8" colour touch-screen. Upgrade from the SE and SE Nav trims to benefit from dual-zone climate control and parking sensors fitted to the front and rear.
One other notable innovation is found under the bonnet, where you have a choice of diesel and petrol units. Mazda SKYACTIV Technology enables these engines to deliver a unique drive that reacts to each dip of the accelerator, without hindering fuel economy or emissions output. At its quickest the new Mazda6 Tourer will surge from 0-60mph in under eight seconds when the 2.2-litre 150ps SKYACTIV-D engine is fitted, while the 175ps diesel is the preferred choice for frugal performance. It emits from 110g/km of CO2 and satisfies with a return of 64.2mpg combined.
Mazda has been sure not to overlook safety when developing the Mazda6 Tourer's performance, as the maximum five-star Euro NCAP rating proves. The vehicle achieved a superb score when crash-tested, as a result of its ultra-strong SKYACTIV-Body. Within this are a number of active systems that work together to keep the car stable, even during the most testing road conditions. Dynamic Stability Control (DCS) with Traction Control System (TCS) are joined by Hill Hold Assist (HHA), among the model's standard offering.
