Exterior

New side sills and a reworked sport-style grille complement fresh front and rear fascias for 2006. Narrow headlights flank a large, five-pointed grille with a Mazda logo. The wheel arches and belt line are well defined.

Built on a 105.3-inch wheelbase, the Mazda6 sedan is 186.8 inches long overall. Base sedans get standard 16-inch tires, but Sport and Grand Touring editions ride on 17-inchers. Sport models include a spoiler and fog lights.
