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 Mazda 6 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 little car 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 hatchback. 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 better mileage, 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).
