In this episode, we test out the fuel economy in the all new 2017 Mazda6. Redesigned just in the past 3 years, the Mazda6 has already gone through a mid-cycle refresh featuring a revised front and rear appearance.
Our tester was equipped with a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine and a 6-speed manual transmission. Our test yielded 336 km on a half tank of gas and gave a decent average fuel economy of 8.3L/100km.
After using up a half tank of gas, we were able to fill it back up for $32.51 at a fuel cost of $1.04/litre. At that rate, expect to spend around $65 for a full tank of gas.
