    The diesel-powered Mazda 6 Atenza flagship has a premium price, but it goes a long way towards justifying it.

    Mazda claims an average fuel consumption of 5. It only takes a few seconds. If SBS senses a high risk of impact, it primes the brakes for faster response. Fact is, the Mazda 6 is not the most practical choice around, but then again it looks a hell of a lot sharper than a Mondeo too… your call, there. Ride and handling well composed.

    The diesel-powered Mazda 6 Atenza flagship has a premium price, but it goes a long way towards justifying it.

    It may not be the cheapest car in the class, but when it launched in , we were impressed by its ability to balance dynamism and practicality, blended with a pseudo-premium edge.

    But with this car now nearing two years of age, it seemed an opportune time to give it another run and see if the lustre remains. Here we test the range flagship: Atenza specification, diesel engine and wagon body-style.

    Under the bonnet is a common-rail and direct-injected 2. It comes matched to a standard six-speed automatic transmission. Mazda pitches this version as its sporting option, since it no longer has an MPS equivalent to call its own. As such, the diesel is a much more laconic cruiser, happy to lope along at highway speeds at low revs.

    In a semi-premium vehicle, the diesel is arguably worth the outlay, purely because it is not only more frugal, but significantly punchier as well. The six-speed paddleshift-equipped, torque-converter auto shifts with decisiveness and in a snappy fashion. Always eager to change up rapidly to keep revs muted and fuel use down, it nevertheless kicks down without hesitation when needed, and rarely holds the wrong ratio. Mazda claims this engine can use as little as 5. Our mixed loop returned closer to 6.

    Dynamically, the Mazda 6 remains among the sharpest tools in the segment. All versions offer a combination of ride and handling that tows the fine line between being engaging and comfortable without favouring either, and thereby compromising the other.

    At mm long and mm wide, this generation 6 is the biggest to date, and as such it feels perhaps less nimble than the original, in much the same way as the current Mazda 3 does compared with its predecessor. One thing you immediately notice is the slightly blunted turn-in on the diesel. It weighs 70kg more than the equivalent petrol at kg, most of this over the front axle. Naturally, the extra punch counteracts this in a straight line.

    But it still rides exceedingly well for a car on such low-profile rubber. Such is the price to be paid for style.

    Importantly, even on 19s the largest Mazda passenger car non-SUV is a fairly quiet cruiser - and that's no small compliment, as NVH noise, vibration and harshness has not always been a Mazda strength.
