Zoom-Zoom has never showcased wallflower tendencies, so why start now? When the all-new 2014 Mazda6 entered the competitive bread-and-butter world of the mid-size passenger car segment, the vehicle excelled in key consumer needs such as fuel economy, safety technology, performance and driving dynamics.
And while bold lines and taut features were noticeably absent from its counterparts, the Mazda6 proudly wears its equally skin-deep beauty also on its sleeve. This unexpected focus on design and style has propelled the vehicle as a recently named finalist.
Outlasting Renault, Land Rover and Volkswagen in the latest round of the voting, the 2014 Mazda6 will share the stage with the Aston Martin Vanquish and Jaguar F-Type at the New York International Auto Show where a winner will be announced during a press conference on March 28. With design the sole focus of this award, these unlikely real-world competitors are competitors nonetheless.
