Reliability & safety Rating

4.5 out of 5

The Mazda6 came in 11th place out of the top 75 cars to own in our 2020 Driver Power owner satisfaction survey.

Mazda6 Tourer reliability

The Mazda6 was rated above average for reliability in our 2020 Driver Power owner satisfaction survey of cars currently on sale in the UK. Of the owners who responded, 15.9% reported experiencing a problem with their car at least once, with electrical issues being the most common faults.

Safety

The Mazda6 breezed to a five-star result when it was crash-tested by Euro NCAP in 2018. It offers excellent protection, with an impressive 95% score in the adult occupant protection category.

Its high score is partly due to the exhaustive amount of safety kit on board. All cars get auto headlights with high-beam assist, a windscreen-projected head-up display, traffic sign recognition, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control and auto emergency braking. Unusually, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are standard too (they’re often bundled into an expensive safety pack). Buyers of the top-spec GT Sport Nav+ model also get a 360-degree camera, driver attention alert, adaptive LED headlights and rear auto emergency braking.
