Can you believe it’s practically May? It seems like I was just recovering from my trip back home to St. Croix. Next month is filled with so many events. My niece is preparing for her high school graduation, senior prom, and 20-something dance recitals. So that means we have to make sure she has her dresses, makeup, jewelry, hair, shoes, and everything in between – not including college – ready for the days to come. We have to start planning our family vacation and making sure all the t’s are crossed and i’s are dotted. It can extremely overwhelming but I know we’ll get it together in time. Anyway, let’s get into this review.
Last week, I got the opportunity to test drive the 2017 Mazda Mazda6 I Grand Touring in Machine Gray Metallic. This was my first time driving a Mazda sedan. Though this was my first time driving one, I always found the Mazda3 (hatchback) to be a cute, stylish car. My first impression? I loved the color, the body style, and the leather seats.
Last week, I had the opportunity to test out the Mazda6. My nieces and I hit up the arcade. Y'all don't want to see me in an arcade – like a big kid 😝 Such a fun way to end the week 🙃#DriveMazda
All in all, I really enjoyed this vehicle and would recommend it to anyone in the market of purchasing a sedan. Outside of the sport mode issue, it’s an amazing vehicle.
Price: Sport starts at $21,945; Touring starts at $24,195; Grand Touring starts at $30,695. The vehicle I test drove had a few optional equipment: cargo mat, gray paint, door sill trim plates, and the GT premium package which brought the total MSRP to $34,350.
Transmission: The Sport and Touring trims are available in both automatic and manual transmissions, however, the Grand Touring is only equipped with automatic transmission.
