2018 Mazda 6
Why Buy the Mazda6?
Whether you’re in the mid-size sedan game for a breezy commute to work or a comfortable, family-centric ride, the 2018 Mazda 6 has you covered. Inside, you’ll find every luxury, from optional leather upholstery to heated and ventilated seats, keeping you cozy year round.
In addition to the usual passenger comforts – supportive seating, a quiet ride – the 2018 Mazda 6 turns up the heat with its trademark driving dynamics. This year, you can capitalize on the 6’s sharp steering and responsive handling with a newly optional turbocharged engine. You’ll certainly have the sportiest sedan in the school drop-off line.
Which Mazda 6 Is Best? Fastest?
This spring, the 2018 Mazda 6 introduces its most luxurious model yet – the Signature. If you’re after a luxe ride but would rather not pay for an expensive European sedan, this is the model for you. Inside, you’ll find upgraded leather upholstery that will be the envy of all your friends. The new ventilated seats – Mazda’s first – will cool you off on a blazing summer afternoon. And, throughout the cabin, you’ll find handsome simulated suede and wood trim, wrapping you in upscale style all the way to work.
If it’s speed you’re after, add the new turbocharged engine to your 2018 Mazda 6. Borrowed from the CX-9 crossover, the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine boosts output to 227 horses and 310 pound-feet of torque. Combined with the Mazda 6’s already-sharp steering and handling, the added speed transforms this sedan into an all-out athlete.
Does the Mazda6 Come as a V6?
No. However, the 2018 Mazda 6 introduces new 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, giving you all the power of a V6 without the overbearing fuel economy. This new engine option generates 227 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque, essentially transforming the 6 into a mid-size sports car. In addition to sailing around corners like a regular racecar driver, you’ll earn 23 city/31 highway mpg, maximizing performance at a price you can afford.
Is the Mazda 6 Front-Wheel or All-Wheel Drive?
In the U.S., the 2018 Mazda 6 features front-wheel drive. If you’re enthusiastic about driving, you may prefer the six-speed manual transmission. However, you shouldn’t miss out on test-driving the six-speed automatic transmission, which includes manual shift and Sport mode, giving you the power to tailor performance settings to your current situation. That is to say that no matter which transmission you choose, you can always downshift for quick access to merging and passing speed.
