Visit Mazda for more information on the Mazda6.

For 2003, Mazda has replaced its 626 with the five-seater Mazda6. This sporty yet practical sedan is larger and more powerful than its predecessor. It is also arguably more fun to drive, with its lively feel, and agile cornering abilities. Also well equipped, it fits Mazda's "zoom-zoom" image perfectly.

Available Models
The 2003 Mazda6 is available in the i model and the s model. The i model comes with a 4-cylinder engine, while the s model contains a V6 engine. On both models, 5-speed manual transmission is standard, but automatic transmission is available. For the i model, the automatic transmission is 4-speed, and for the s model, it is 5-speed. Both offer a manual shift gate.

Interior Features
Interior features on both models of the new 2003 Mazda6 include cruise control, power steering, a tilt/telescopic steering wheel with radio controls, power door locks, mirrors, and windows, and air conditioning. Other standard features on this sedan are a tachometer, a digital clock, an AM/FM/CD player, and illuminated visor mirrors. The s model also adds an 8-way power driver seat, and automatic climate control to its standard interior features.

The 2003 Mazda6 beats many of its rivals by providing a roomy rear seat that can effortlessly accommodate three adults. It also offers ample cargo room, especially through its handy split folding rear seat.

Exterior Features
Both models of the 2003 Mazda6 come equipped with 16-inch wheels, and automatic-off headlights. The wheels on the s models are alloy. All models can be furnished with the Sport Package, which adds a rear spoiler, body cladding, 17-inch wheels, and dual exhaust outlets.

The 2003 Mazda6 i model houses a 2.3-litre dohc 4-cylinder engine, that produces 160 hp at 6000 rpm, and 155 lbs-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. The s model contains a 3.0-litre V6 engine, that delivers 220 hp at 6300 rpm, and 192 lbs-ft of torque at 5000 rpm. The 5-speed manual transmission models have a fuel rating of 25/32 mpg (city/highway) and 20/27 mpg for the i and s models respectively. The 4-speed automatic transmission version does 23/29 mpg, while the s model equipped with 5-speed automatic transmission does 19/27 mpg.

Safety and Security
For safety, all Mazda6 models come equipped with dual front airbags, and emergency inside trunk release. The i model is provided with 4-wheel disc brakes, while the s model is upgraded to 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes.
