Okay, we have a general idea of the '6's accelleration, and read compliments on it's handling, but do we have any actual specs of it's handling capabilities? Turning radius? Skidpad numbers?

Some info from the Swedish magazine Teknikens Värld:

Speed on 5th gear @ 1000 rpm : 34,4 km/h
Turning radius: 10,8 meters

Aceeleration through the gears: (km/h)
0-50 - 3.1 sec
0-70 - 5.0 sec
0-100 - 8,7 sec
0-130 - 14,1 sec
0-160 - 21,4 sec
Quarter mile - 16,3 sec
Speed after 402 meters - 141 km/h

Maximum overtake capability (?)
70-130 - 9,1 sec

"Heavy hauling" (I guess they test power on low rpms or something)
4th gear 50 - 90 km/h - 8,4 sec
5th gear 70 - 110 km/h 10,1 sec

Brake 100 - 0 km/h - 38,1 meters

It can handle the "elk test" (cone slalom) in 72km/h before loosing grip. Teknikens Världs writes "A Mercedes and a Jaguar that where tested at the same time stod beside and watched, and they seemed to be ashamed of them selfs. Non of them handled the obsticles with such elegance as the Mazda, and they didn't come close to the 72 km/h....".

Auto Motor Sport's figures

Acceleration (km/h)

0-160 - 21,5sec

Is anyone can tell me what is the openning width (inch or centimeter) of the access hold on the Mazda 6 (sedan) once the rear seats are put down. When only the 60% is down and when only the 40% is down. And finally when both are down. Thanks in advance.
