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.
