Hi Sedan,

Tuning and gear ratio as bro conti advised.

Check the FC which should show worse for CX5 to haul bigger load, including 60kg added curb weight, and needing bigger sooner torque, gearing changes etc. which also means faster 0-100kmhr.

I can attest to excellent FC of the mazda 6 .. 7l/100km vs my forester at 7km/l or almost 100% better .. lol !

I can also attest that cx5 is noiser from this "rev" as well as the engine being nearer to the cabin.

If you wish the mazda 6 to "rev" and perform more like the cx5, this is where ethrottle like pivot comes in but you can change gearing unless you bypass ecu with other tuning solution like ecutek .. at the expense of FC of course since performance is not free.

Cheers.

Richard

Thanks for the reply! I don't fully understand gear ratio and tuning yet but I can at least know where to look. (briefly looked up on it, is it related to the "revness" of the car?) 

Just wondering, as they have an S mode, is the 10.8s based on S mode or normal D gear? (I understand that under S mode, they will keep the gear lower to increase the rev) 

Also, based on the spec, it seems that they hv same gear ratio from gear 1 to 6, but the final ratio is indeed lower for the m6. Is this due to gear shifting rate?

Tested using a Dyno,not accurate,real test will be 11++ Secs..

Hi Sedan,

My pleasure but think no need to look into details of this .. 10.8 sec is probably with aircon off and windows up with S mode ... you will not likely to notice the difference.

Believe so on the final gear of the mazda 6 but it is really about FC and response due to torque and bhp .. SUV is not about better FC. 

Both will feel underwhelming and noisy if you are in a hurry but fine when you pick up speed in normal driving and it is ymmv since always your past experience and expectation.

Cheers.

Richard

Apologies if this has been discussed before, I couldn’t find anything about this.

Anyone has experience with creaky front suspension? Mine creaks only when going over those small speed bumps in carparks. 2019 model.

Thanks!

Saw today promo for the 6. 108,888. Why the drop in price when Coe is going up? Is there a new 6 coming? Or any other reasons? I'm just clueless..

The 6 is getting cheaper comparing to the other same cat cars. Why is it so? Any reasons? I still think is a very nice car.

They do not always follow coe trend.

promo listed at 108k means nett likely to be lower.

Either targets to meet or clearing stocks

Lowest shared in this thread for executive is around 102k

No more FL. Current model underwent FL twice with latest being 2018. They call it IPM (should be interim product modification).  What you are referring to is likely IPM 4 with the most significant change being the improvement from G-vector to G-vector+. You can Google for the detailed improvement. The recent sale they had was to rid the IPM3 YOM 2019models.

This platform is already 7 years old. New model should be launching early next year ?

May make its debut in one of the motor shows in late 2021 but that still depends on the COVID-19 situation which had slowed activities in Japan significantly and we know Mazda comes wholly from Hiroshima. There is industry talk that Geneva motor show next year may still be virtual. Availability to global markets should be from 2022 onwards.
