2016 Mazda 6- what to look out for & exact difference between models?

    After a lot of toing and froing I'm currently thinking of getting a 2015/6 Mazda 6- extremely comfortable interior, nice trim, lovely body shape. More exciting looking & I prefer the interior to the Skoda Octiva Style. (I test drove a Platinum DSL model). Other runners were BMW 3 or 5 series- more expensive than the Mazda- which seems to be priced very well- any particular reason why?

    I've read a few things about them being extremely unreliable but think that's been resolved in the 2015 & 2016 models- correct? When should the timing chain be replaced & how much does it cost? What are the things to watch out for & check when considering buying please?

    Lastly, what exactly are the differences between the models; I did a quick google search but couldn't find a comprehensive result.
