Yeah, none of my commentary was meant to say that the Mazda6 isn't a great car for general use, with perhaps a sporty flair. I was just pointing out that 2 cars, with 4 doors, similar price tags, and marketed to the world as "sporty", can actually be VERY different cars from a "driver's car", or engineering, point of view.
I know a lot of people out there that see the word "Sport", or "S" added to a model designation, and assume that it's some kind of enthusiast vehicle. When I first got my WRX, a girl pointed out that we had similar tastes in cars. She drove a Corolla S. I smiled and nodded, and let her keep her illusions (the S was a sticker/aesthetics package), but if people are on here asking for opinions, I usually point out differences.
