Default Should I get the 2016 Mazda CX-5 or the Mazda 6?

I am in the market for a new car and I think I am going to get either the [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]Mazda [COLOR=blue !important]6[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] or the Mazda CX-5, but I am having a hard time deciding between the two and would appreciate your thoughts. I have been driving a no-frills 2001 Corolla that has been a great [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]little [COLOR=blue !important]car[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] for me (and the only car I've ever had), but it is at the point of needing some maintenance that will cost more than the car is probably worth. I liked being higher up in the CX-5, I think it will be better in snow and ice (which we get a few times per winter on average - I live in Wichita), it was very quiet, and I liked the [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]hatchback[/COLOR][/COLOR]. On the other hand, I don't have kids and do not think I would use the extra storage capacity very often. I prefer driving a car over an SUV, I like the looks of the Mazda 6, it gets [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]better [COLOR=blue !important]mileage[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR], and I get the impression that Mazda 6 owners are more excited about their cars and enjoy driving them. Which would you pick? (I also posted in the Mazda 6 forum).

They are two totally different vehicles and it depends on what you want. The CX5 is an SUV, which has been great in the snow/ice of a New England winter. I'm driving a 6 (loaner from the dealer). I qualify it to be a "luxury" sedan. MUCH lower to the ground than the CX5. The 6 gets better gas mileage (averaging about 28.5 around town), the trunk space is massive - I think you could lose a lot of stuff in the 6's cargo area. I'm fairly tall, so I've been whacking the top of my head getting in and out of the 6. Comparatively I get better gas mileage in my CX5 on the highway than in the 6.
