Expert Quotes:

generally muffled sound and weak bass response that'll have you doubting there's a subwoofer at work
Edmunds

although it has an onboard phonebook, you can't transfer contacts from your phone to the car
CNET

has a nifty touch we haven’t seen anywhere else in this class: a three-position switch for adjusting headlight level—ideal for occasions when you’ve filled the trunk with heavy stuff such as cement bags or your mother-in-law
Car and Driver

HVAC dual-temp and primary radio controls are round dials and the overall cabin ergonomics are good
Autoblog

An owner can utilize the vehicle diagnostics connector (via a special tool at the dealer) to tune various functions such as headlamp on-and-off cycles, turn-signal buzzer volume, blind-spot warning activation, power door lock operation and about 20 other functions.
Popular Mechanics

The Mazda6 is positioned, for value and pricing, right up against segment leaders like the Honda Accord, Nissan Maxima, and Hyundai Sonata. Like those models, the 6 covers a wide range in terms of pricing and equipment, with the base SV starting just under $20k and a fully loaded 's' Grand Touring costing more than $33k.

Other than the lack of Bluetooth, which we think should be offered at all trim levels, we like the level of equipment in the SV; it includes air conditioning, a tilt/telescopic stsering wheel, power windows and locks, rear-seat heated ducts, and a six-speaker audio system with aux input. At the top of the range, Grand Touring models gain items like leather upholstery, heated front seats, keyless illuminated entry, cruise control, a dual-zone climate control system, fog lamps, and a power moonroof.

New for 2011, Grand Touring models now get a 4.3-inch Multi-Information Display, including Bluetooth controls and a rearview camera, and Touring models also get a Bluetooth interface.

All the requisite options are available: push-button start, an audio system with satellite radio and a built-in hard drive, a navigation system, and rain-sensing wipers.

Conclusion

The 2011 Mazda6 comes with a good set of features, but Bluetooth is still missing on all but top trims.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
