2000 Mazda 626 Overview

The 2000 Mazda saw quite a few changes from the previous year. The front and rear ends were restyled; the handling, brakes, and steering were made more responsive; and many new options were offered, including front side airbags and larger alloy wheels.

The 1999 Mazda 626 was available in four times: the LX, the LX V6, the ES, and the ES V6. The LX was the midrange model. Upgrading to the ES gets a power moon roof, leather interior, and a six-way power driver’s seat. The base engine was a 2.0-liter, 130 horsepower four cylinder, and the V6 had 2.5 liters and 170 horsepower. Fuel economy is 22/28 for the four cylinder and 20/26 for the V6.

Many drivers like the 2000 Mazda 626 because it handles well and is fun to drive, saying that it is much sportier than the top-selling family sedans on the market. 626 enthusiasts also like the car because it is comfortable and gets good gas mileage. Many four-cylinder drivers say the car is underpowered. Others complain the back seat is too small.
