So you’re thinking ‘Travelin Diva’ is the Mazda6 a great car for road trips or daily commutes to work? My short answer…hell Yes! Why? It’s a 4 cylinder with the get up go of a V6. Don’t believe me, here are the stats. The Skyactive drive 6-speed sport automatic transmission delivers 184 horsepower. I had a very hard time believing this car was a 4 cylinder because the acceleration was sooooo smooth and fast. Being a 4 cylinder is great for keeping fuel costs down on road trips. This means more money for spending on vacation. #winning

Mazda even went all out on the sound system in this re-design. The sound system in the Mazda6 is powered by a BOSE 11-speaker system. This means that everything comes through crystal clear, music, nav instructions, phone calls…everything! Can we talk about the parking break? This car has an electronic parking brake. No more hand kick stand action, put your foot on the brake pedal and pull up the brake switch and the brake is applied. You can actually feel the brake engaging, it tickled me at first. Man…I love this car!
