The accolades just keep coming for the Mazda6.

Popular Mechanics, or PM, has just named the Mazda6 sedan as their Car of the Year, just the latest award to be given to the SkyActiv equipped sedan from Mazda.

Popular Mechanics had their automotive editors and contributors judged various vehicles and selected the Mazda6 as their Car of the Year for its overall excellence along the lines of "the vehicle that best exemplifies qualities that are most important to their readers: affordability, utility, fuel efficiency, performance, innovation and bold design".

The SkyActiv family of engines garnered an Automotive Excellence Award last year in the Technical Innovation category.
