A number of sedans have been put to rest recently, but the Mazda 6’s passing is especially notable. The current generation debuted in 2014, though it hardly shows its age considering its sleek styling, sharp handling and an optional turbocharged motor with power to spare.
That wasn’t enough, however. Shoppers are increasingly turning to crossover SUVs instead of smaller cars and sedans, and there wasn’t enough interest in the 6 to warrant Mazda’s continued investment. It’s unfortunate since the 6 is one of Edmunds’ highest-rated sedans. It’s worth seeking one out.
