I got the issue in the mail today and was happy to see that the Mazda 6 was included in Esquire's 2006 Car Buyer's Guide article "The Ten Under Fifty". Here is what they had to say:

"TheTenUnderFifty - You don't need a mint to get wheels that feel like you did. Here are ten cars that'll leave you grinning, each for less than fifty grand. BY EZRA DYER

The secret of the 6's appeal is in the details-the chunky feel of the shifter in your hand, the smooth, eager power delivered by even the base four-cylinder. Though this is a bread-and-butter family car, it's clear that the people who tuned the steering and suspension care about driving. The 6 constantly surprises with its abilities. Go ahead, put five golf bags in the trunk. Somehow, they fit. This is the kind of car you name and keep driving long after it's paid for. Maybe you could afford somethign else, but the 6 gets under your skin."

Included in the article is a picture of a 2003 Sport Packaged V6 Lapis Blue Sedan.
