Mazda has given the 6 family car a facelift. On the outside, only high-spec SportNav models look different, but inside there are advances to fit, finish and kit levels. The petrol models undercut the equivalent diesels and this 165PS (163bhp) version is the more powerful of the two.

Of course, we are keen to see what tow car ability the 6 petrol has. Is it strong enough for towing duties, with fuel economy to make buyers think twice before opting for diesel power?
