2014 Mazda 6 Touring Review

Starting at under $24,000, the 2014 Mazda 6 Touring offers great value in a sporty and stylish package. Featuring Mazda’s eco-friendly SKYACTIV technology, the midsize sedan offers a generous 184 horsepower from its inline-4 while earning up to 37 mpg highway. Inside, our Soul Red tester came packed with amenities not normally scene in this price range, including a color touch screen display and rearview camera.
