Is the Mazda Mazda6 a Midsize Sedan Worthy of Your Ownership?

When it comes to discovering a family sedan in the Milford area that provides a satisfyingly fun ride along with a sleek exterior design, there's nothing here at Mazda of Milford that stands out quite like the Mazda6. This midsize sedan saw a boost in handling in its latest iteration, thanks to Mazda's G-Vectoring Control - which offers an impressive attention to detail from the powertrain to ease steering corrections while out on the local roads. With its 2017 model, the Mazda6 manages to make a strong case against its more mainstream rivals such as the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry with a truly inspired performance.

Let's dive right into what the Mazda6 is able to achieve that sets it apart from its competitors, making it one of the best valued vehicles in its segment.

The Mazda6 vs the Honda Accord

  • For those tighter turns on city streets in New Haven and Bridgeport, the Mazda6 offers a noticeably smaller turning diameter of 36.7 inches than the Honda Accord, which has a turning diameter of 38.1 inches.
  • If you're craving a midsize sedan with stronger fuel economy, the Mazda6 is capable of triumphing over the Accord with the EPA-estimated 29 combined mpg of its manual transmission and 30 combined mpg with the available Skyactiv-Drive 6-speed automatic transmission. Honda's model, on the other hand, peaks at 27 combined mpg.
  • Lastly, the latest Mazda6 has a more affordable price tag under $22,000, while the 2017 Accord starts slightly higher at $22,455.

The Mazda6 vs the Toyota Camry

  • The Mazda6 stands out right away with a more complete performance from its 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, capable of 184-horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque. The Camry peaks at 178-horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque.
  • For those who prefer 6-speed manual transmission, the Mazda6 comes with it as standard. Meanwhile, the Toyota Camry only offers an automatic transmission with an available manual model for selecting gears.
  • Just like the Honda Accord, the Toyota Camry doesn't come with the benefit of a sub-$22,000 starting price. Instead, you'd be looking at a pricier option at than $23,000 as an MSRP.
