Mazda is a brand that builds cars for people who like to drive. Sure, you can get a Mazda if all you’re looking to do is get from point A to point B, but there are plenty of cars that can do that and they can do it for less money.
The Mazda6 gets you where you need to go and makes sure you’re smiling when you arrive. It starts before you even open the door with a striking design that looks good from any angle. It’s not like every other car in the parking lot. Instead it stands out with a notably upscale look that’s sure to impress.
Inside, there’s ample room for five passengers with comfortable seating. Available features include leather seating surfaces, Ultrasuede accents, heated front and rear seats, and a heated steering wheel. It’s a great place to pass the time.
There’s a standard 8-inch color touchscreen with AM/FM/HD Radio, 6-speaker audio, and 2 USB ports. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto aren’t available on the base trim, but are standard across the rest of the lineup along with two additional USB ports.
Power comes from a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine with 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque on base trims paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission on the Sport and Touring. If you’re looking for a more responsive ride, it’s available on the top three trims.
These come equipped with a 2.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with 250 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. That’s no small jump and it provides a markedly better drive experience. These trims let you fully enjoy the capabilities of this sedan.
