    2018 Mazda Mazda6 OVERVIEW

    The world of midsize sedans is going down the turbocharged path. Mazda, for the most part, has stuck to its guns with its SkyActiv technology for the majority of its models. That, though, changes for the 2018 Mazda6. But the automaker has stuck to what made the midsize offering so popular in the beginning with its gorgeous Kodo design blueprint and athletic handling. The Mazda6, as with other Mazda vehicles, is as sporty as ever, but has benefited from some new luxury features along the way.

    What's New for 2018

    A lot has changed for the 2018 Mazda6, but we'll try to keep thing simple. The midsize sedan has been refreshed for the new year, bringing an upgraded engine, a new chassis, a refreshed interior, and a slightly altered design. There's also a new range-topping Signature trim in the lineup.

    The major news is the addition of a 2.5-liter turbocharged inline-four that's borrowed from the CX-9 midsize SUV. The naturally-aspirated 2.5-liter engine, though, also gets an update with cylinder deactivation technology. Mazda has also fitted the Mazda6 with new tech features, including a 360-degree view monitor, a seven-inch reconfigurable gauge display, a new eight-inch infotainment display, adaptive cruise control with stop and go, and a head-up display.

    Choosing Your Mazda Mazda6

    The new addition of the turbocharged engine complicates things, but not by much. The vehicle is now available with two engines, both of which are 2.5-liter four-cylinders. One is naturally aspirated and puts out 187 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque. The other is turbocharged and generates 227 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. If you’re okay with spending some more money at the pumps for premium 93-octane fuel, power output for the turbocharged motor increases to 250 hp.

    The base 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine can be paired to a six-speed manual transmission, but only in the base trim. Everything else, including the turbocharged offering, gets a six-speed automatic gearbox. The Mazda6 is exclusively sold with front-wheel drive.

    The most fuel-efficient model, the 2.5-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine with the automatic transmission, can get up to 26 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway. Opting for the manual gearbox brings those figures down by two in both the city and on the highway. The turbocharged engine lags behind with a rating of 23 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.

    The Mazda6 is available in five trims:

    Sport

    The Sport model is the entry-level Mazda6 and costs $22,840 (all prices include destination). It's the only trim that's available with a manual gearbox. Letting the car handle all of the shifting raises the price to $23,890. Standard exterior features for the Sport trim include 17-inch wheels, dual exhaust, LED headlights and running lights, and remote keyless entry.

    On the inside, the base model comes with dual-zone auto climate control, a six-speaker audio system, push-button start, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, cloth seats, an eight-inch touchscreen display, and a rearview camera.

    Going with a Sport trim with the manual gearbox means that you can't add any optional features. Choosing to pay extra for the automatic transmission makes the $625 I-Activsense Package as an option. Ticking this box adds forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control with stop and go, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, high beam control, auto on/off headlights, and rain sensing variable-intermittent windshield wipers.

    The Mazda6 Sport is the only trim with optional extras – from here on, the features and powertrains are set.

    Touring

    The Touring trim is the next step up and is priced at $26,590. It adds 19-inch alloy wheels, auto on/off headlights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a power moonroof, air conditioning vents for the rear sets, leatherette-trimmed sport seats, a six-way power driver’s seat, illuminated vanity mirrors, advanced keyless entry, and heated front seats as standard over the base model.

    In terms of safety, the Touring trim comes with all of the safety features from the I-Activesense Package as standard.

    Grand Touring

    Stepping up to the Grand Touring trim costs $30,090 and is the most affordable way to get a Mazda6 with the new turbocharged engine – it's standard from this point on. In addition to the 227-hp engine, the Grand Touring trim adds heated exterior mirrors, an auto-dimming exterior driver's side mirror, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with Homelink, paddle shifters, a Bose 11-speaker audio system, navigation, and SiriusXM satellite radio.

    Grand Touring Reserve

    The Grand Touring Reserve trim is priced at $32,590 and comes with 19-inch alloy wheels, a rear lip spoiler, LED signature headlights, windshield wiper de-icer, leather-trimmed sport seats, an eight-way power driver’s seat, a memory system for driver’s seat, a heads-up display, a heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and an adaptive front-lighting system as standard.

    Signature

    The new Signature model sits at the top of the range and carries a price tag of $35,640. Going with the Mazda6 Signature brings a gunmetal front grille, a frameless rearview mirror, unique stitching for the steering wheel, an overhead console with LED courtesy lamps, Nappa leather seats, bright power seat switches, a black headliner, a seven-inch digital instrument cluster, Sen Wood details, and ultra suede trim as standard over lower models. In terms of safety features, the Mazda6 Signature gets a 360-degree camera rig with front and rear sensors as standard.

    CarsDirect Tip

    We’ve been waiting a long time for Mazda to put a turbocharged engine into the Mazda6 and the specs behind the new engine don’t disappoint. We were hoping to see Mazda offer a manual transmission option on the new engine, but we get it, people don’t like to shift gears themselves anymore. The Grand Touring trim is the cheapest way to get the new engine, but the trim also comes with a good mix of upscale amenities and safety features to be the sweet spot in the lineup.
