The VW is the only one of those three I wouldn't consider.
Why? Curious

It's just a boring car IMO. The Infinity has decent power and the Mazda 6 is known as a fun car to drive. Both cars are decent to look at. The VW is kind of stale in comparison.

fair and i dont really disagree... its a sensible choice... with a good motor...is why its up there. but i agree with your assesment.

on the mazda anyone know anything about the I-Eloop tech? saw where it could increase MPG to the 40 range but idk if it is glitchy or unreliable but 40 mpg could be nice

Havent bought yet..right now it will more than likely be the Mazda6 but i need to test drive one one more time to be sure that i will be okay with the HP... i love the car, just wish it had a turbo on the later ones... 184 HP isnt great.... but the car drives well overall... i place it close to the neon in overall feel(a modified one at least)

UGHHHH, okay so this weekend we went to look at the Mazda one more time and check interior sizing and make sure she was happy.. on the way we stopped at Honda and i showed her the accord sport 2.0... well she was indifferent about it but didn't say no to it... she doesn't care for Honda as that was all her mom would buy... now i have the decision of waiting a little longer and getting the accord when used ones come on market.. which has a good engine and tranny, rides well and looks eh, but also has less options overall...or get the Mazda 6?

i like the looks of the 6 hands down.. but the accord is faster
driving feel does to the Mazda IMO
but practicality and space goes accord...
interior quality goes to the Mazda and so does options for price...
the 6 gets better gas mileage too... but that comes with less power..


in all honesty i prefer everything about the 6 but the engine..... it is adequite but if i can get something fast.. do i? i have a lead foot so getting a smaller engine may not be the worst thing for my driving record... i keep thinking i was very happy in a neon with all of 130 hp(crank) so surely 185 would be enough to keep me happy still....

I cant decide here....

I like the body lines on the 6 better. The performance would have to be damn good, to make up for an ugly car.
