Mazda6 in the Market

The new Mazda6 has a lot of things going for it. Its unique styling manages to be original without being off-putting, it offers an engaging driving experience for a family sedan, and it has a spacious interior that uses good-quality materials. It's everything that a car going up against the likes of the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry needs to be to have a chance.

What remains to be seen is whether Mazda has improved its reliability. While it wasn't terrible, a look at Consumer Reports' vehicle reliability histories reveals some trouble spots for the previous-generation car. Tim Barnes, Mazda's director of product planning and strategy, said one of the automaker's goals with the new car is best-in-class initial quality. That's important for sure, but long-term dependability is how brands like Honda and Toyota have built a loyal following, and it's what Mazda needs from the new Mazda6 for it to be considered among the best in this segment once its newness has worn off.
