Overview

What's New

The 2020 Mazda Mazda6 continues to provide a sportier ride and a mainstream-plus mentality. While other automakers have expanded with sub-brands to do their luxury and near-luxury bidding, Mazda stretches its lineup with the Signature trim that provides higher-tier material quality and features.

While much of the car buying audience is looking at crossovers, the Mazda6 offers plenty of reasons to give this sedan consideration.

Choosing Your Mazda Mazda6

The Mazda6 is offered in five trims: Sport, Touring, Grand Touring, Grand Touring Reserve, and Signature. Prices start at $24,920 including destination for the base Sport and reach $36,220 for the Signature.

Engine Choices

The Mazda6 is offered with two different engines which are paired with trim levels. The two lower trims, Sport and Touring, are equipped with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, while the top three receive a turbocharged engine of the same size.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
2.5L 4-Cylinder187 hp186 lb-ft29 mpg
2.5L Turbo 4-Cylinder250 hp310 lb-ft26 mpg

Both engines send power to the front wheels with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The mid-size Mazda6 is a four-door sedan with seating for five. It's comparable in size to the Toyota Camry or Honda Accord with 38.7 inches of rear legroom. It offers 14.7 cubic feet of cargo space in the trunk.

Safety Features

The full gamut of active safety features are included on even the base trim of the Mazda6.

Automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams are standard.

The Grand Touring Reserve adds adaptive headlights, while the Signature gets a surround-view camera system and front and rear parking sensors.

The NHTSA awards the Mazda6 with a five-star overall safety rating, while the IIHS named it a Top Safety Pick Plus.

Connectivity

Every Mazda6 features an 8-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth, HD radio, one USB port, and Pandora and Stitcher compatibility. However, buyers have to upgrade to the Touring to get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. The Grand Touring includes satellite radio, while moving up to the Signature brings navigation.

Mazda Mazda6

Sport - From $24,920

The base Sport trim balances a lower starting price with Mazda’s aspirational design and use of quality interior materials. LED headlights and taillights, 17-inch alloy wheels, rain-sensing wipers are found on the outside. The interior features remote keyless entry, push-button start, dual-zone climate control, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear shifter.

A cloth interior and six-way manual seat adjustment leave room for the higher trims to shine.

Touring - From $27,520

The Touring trim receives noticeable upgrades outside and inside with 19-inch wheels, proximity entry, a moonroof, leatherette seating, heated front seats, a six-way power driver's seat, and air-conditioning vents for the rear passengers.

Ground Touring - From $30,620

The Grand Touring receives the turbocharged engine, heated side mirrors, an auto-dimming driver's side mirror, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and an 11-speaker Bose audio system.

Grand Touring Reserve - From $33,120

The Grand Touring Reserve can be considered the top trim by most mainstream sedan standards. Leather seating with ventilation for the front seats and heat for the rear, a head-up display, adaptive headlights, power-folding side mirrors, a heated steering wheel, and driver seat position memory leave few features on the table.

Signature - From $36,220

The Signature trim demonstrates Mazda’s intentions of seeking consideration from the near-luxury car shoppers. A unique front grille and 19-inch wheels touch up the exterior, while Nappa leather, real wood trim inserts, and LED interior lighting enhance the inside. The technology also goes a step above with a 7-inch LCD driver information display and a surround-view monitor.

Outstanding available turbo engine. Like competing models in the midsize sedan segment such as the Nissan Altima, the 2020 Mazda Mazda6 has naturally-aspirated and turbocharged four-cylinder engine choices.

The base 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine makes 187 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque, and that’s less kick than what we’d prefer. It’s perfect for the Mazda Mazda3, however. For upgraded power, the turbocharged version ratchets performance up to 250 hp (when using premium fuel) and 310 lb-ft of torque

We’re disappointed Mazda doesn’t offer an all-wheel-drive option, although the sedan remains stable under hard acceleration thanks to redesigned dampers and a rigid body. Accurate steering and a smooth ride are two hallmarks of all Mazda6 models, but if you’re looking for exhilaration, the turbo is a must.

Designed to wow. We’ve long been impressed by the beauty of the Mazda6, and we believe its elegant shape has forced other manufacturers to improve their styling to compete – here’s looking at you, Toyota Camry.

The brand’s KODO (soul of motion) design theme may be the best in the segment and ranks up there with the luxury marques. A sharp grille, strong character lines, and an elevated and tapered rear-end combine to wow us.

Inside, the design is no less daring or elegant. Simple character lines dominate with just the right blend of contrasting details. Move up to the Signature trim and this one takes a page out of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class playbook with its fine-crafted leathers. No other mainstream brand rises to the level of a top-end Mazda6.

Strong tech features. The Mazda6 offers a competitive list of tech features, although you’ll want to move up from the base Sport model to at least the Touring trim to gain Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone compatibility. The Touring also adds a pair of rear-seat USB ports, and that’s a big deal for today’s tech-savvy consumers.

The standard 8-inch touchscreen is slightly larger than most competing models and features a dial controller, which we found clunky to operate.

The middle of five trims, the Grand Touring, brings in an exquisite Bose audio system and satellite radio. Navigation, a surround-view camera system, and a 7-inch digital instrument panel display come with the range-topping Signature.

Steadfast safety. Perhaps the best attribute of the Mazda6 is in the safety realm. Here, this sedan garners the top safety ratings from both the IIHS and NHTSA.

But Mazda doesn’t stop there. Following on the heels of Toyota and Nissan, which also have made advanced driver-assist features standard, the Mazda6 does likewise. Indeed, this model comes with automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitoring.

On the Ground Touring Reserve and Signature, you’ll find a color head-up display.

Final thoughts. We know not everyone is looking at a crossover, although it oftentimes seems that way. But when it comes to sedans, the 2020 Mazda Mazda6 is a pacesetter in a shrinking segment.

Begin your search with the Touring trim and you’ll have nearly all the tech and safety equipment you need. Upgrading to the turbo engine begins with the Grand Touring trim, and it’s worth it if you wish to combine optimum performance with superior handling.
