2005 Mazda MAZDA6 Overview

Mazda expanded its line of Mazda 6 mid-size vehicles for 2005 by adding a new Sport package for all three of the Mazda 6 body types -- sedan, five-door hatchback, and wagon. In addition, a Grand Touring package was added for the sedan and wagon. Also, a new six-speed automatic transmission with a manual shift feature was available on vehicles with the "s" designation.
All of the s-designed vehicles, including the s sedans, hatchbacks, and wagons with various trim packages, came with a 220-horsepower, 3.0-liter V6 engine. Sedans and hatchbacks with the i designation featured a 160-horsepower, 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine.
The base-level sedan, hatchback, and wagon came with such standard features as air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, cruise control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a CD player. Sport packages added power seats, while the Grand Touring package added a sunroof and leather seats, among other features.
Drivers found a lot to like about the Mazda 6 cars, including their handling, acceleration, styling, sound system, and value. Some drivers noted that dealership repairs could be expensive, but generally those were minimal, according to most drivers.
