Weekend Match-Up: New 4-Door Sedan for JB1025

Time for a bonus episode Mid Week Match-Up, which should probably be called Weekend Match-Up, but this feature is for JB1025 who is looking for a new daily driver sedan. From JB1025: 

Here looking to be midweek victim, my
lease is up on  2013 Honda Accord sport so looking for another 4 door
sedan but open to a coupe Budget is 25k will stay with Japan or Korean
as first choice but open to others, with a lease should cover any
warranty problems. Need an auto trans 4 cyl or V-6. Also open to small
suv Hyundai Tucson class.

I would be happy to have any DT followers to chime in for my search
still out looking was @ the Mazda dealership drove a Mazda 3 hatch and a
CX-5 .was impressed with there stuff so…..ready for some new ideas
and a little DT flack.

DT E-i-C Vince: For my money on a new $25k sedan I think you would do very nicely with a 2016 Mazda 6 — it features a styling exterior, and a 2.5 liter turbo SkyActive inline-4 that puts 184 horsepower into a 6-speed manual or 6-speed auto.

What would you drive?  Comments below.
