Product Overview

Mazda 6 / Atenza III (code GJ) facelift is a mid-size sports sedan in production from 2015 to 2017, whereupon it received the second facelift in its lifecycle. It is available with a range of inline-4 engine options that displaced 2.0 to 2.5 liters.
Around this time, the Euro 6 standards came into effect, and this facelift mainly addressed this for the petrol engines. On paper, the vehicles did not lose power, though the addition of "Gasoline Particulate Filter" (GPF) usually led to a mix of higher fuel consumption, lower power output, and worse long-term reliability.
The official fuel economy rating is exceptionally rosy, though it may cast more doubts on the trustworthiness of the regulators and perhaps the owner's own sanity than it relates to reality. The vehicle also comes with a high towing capacity.

Sentiment Score 76%
Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
The Mazda 3's 2.0 petrol is a bit short on torque but blessed with naturally zingy throttle response and clean, smooth journey to the redline. It's claimed to emit a credible 119g/km of CO2, with the standard manual gearbox rather than the optional auto, and averages 55.4mpg. The 2.2 is a fantastic engine, feeling almost like a petrol thanks to its flexible, free-revving character.

Pros
  • Fantastic engine
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Flexible drivability
Cons
  • Fiddly infotainment system

Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
This is the fourth MX-5 to wear the Icon name since 2000. Production is capped at just 600 units this time; they're all 1.5s, not the larger 2.0-litre. The Icon is based on the SE-L Nav spec, so customers will also benefit from black leather seats, rear parking sensors, dusk-sensing lights and automatic wipers.

Pros
  • Sleek styling
  • Powerful engine
  • Impressive handling
Cons
  • Limited to 600 units
