Mazda 6 Venture Edition: High Spec, Low Money

Like the recently announced Mazda2 Venture Edition the  Mazda6 Venture Edition offers a lot more kit, for very little more money.

Prices are £21,000 for the 155PS 2.0 litre petrol model hatchaback, £22,300 for the 163PS 2.2 litred diesel hatchback and  £22,900 for the 163PS 2.2 litred diesel estate.

Mazda6 Venture Editions are  based on Mazda6 TS2 models, and feature Sanyo TomTom® navigation, integrated Bluetooth®, half-leather seat trim and heated front seats.

Outside, Mazda6 Venture Editions have 17-inch gunmetal alloy wheels, Sports front grille, rear spoiler, privacy glass and a special range of colours - including Brilliant Black and optional Crystal White Pearlescent, Black Mica or Stormy Blue Mica, as well as a unique colour for this version - Dolphin Grey Mica.

The Mazda6 Venture Edition equipment upgrades and additions cost only £340-to-£480 more than the TSmodels from which they are derived, representing good value as well as the exclusivity of just 257 examples available.

Mazda6 Venture Edition models benefit from the standard equipment level of the TS2 which includes: front, side and curtain airbags, rear vehicle monitoring system, front rain-sensing wipers, leather steering wheel with audio controls, six disc CD changer with Auxiliary jack and six speakers, front and rear parking sensors and a Thatcham Category 1 alarm.

The petrol hatchback Venture Edition is powered by a 2.0-litre (155ps) MZR engine which accelerates this model to 62mph in 10.3 seconds and returns 40.9mpg (EC combined) with a 159g/km CO2 rating.

The 2.2-litre (163ps) MZR-CD engine accelerates to 62mph in 9.2 seconds, and returns 53.3mpg (EC combined)  with low emissions of 140 to 141g/km.  These two models qualify for Road Fund Licence bands E and F, while sensible Benefit In Kind costs offer significant savings.

The 4.78-metre long Mazda6 estate is an immensely capable load carrier, with Mazda's uniqueKarakuri60/40 split, easy-fold seat mechanism this model holds a cargo volume of 1,751-litres when loaded to the roof with the rear seats folded flat.

Wow!  I was amazed when  I saw this Mazda 6  venture edition. I can't help but to say it's superb! The specs are really great, things that car buyers are looking for. They say it has a high spec in low cost, it sounds good.
