The Mazda6 made a strong entrance last year establishing itself as a real viable option within the midsize sedan market. It offers dramatic styling, precise handling and excellent braking. Featuring Skyactiv technology, the Mazda6 continues to deliver surprising power and impressive fuel economy for a car of its size and abilities.

What's New for 2015

The Mazda6 was completely redesigned in 2014 so changes this year are minor. One-touch up/down windows with backlit switches have been added to the base model.
