Serving Farmington Hills, MI

Are you interested in a new Mazda sedan? There are two great options to take a closer look at. Both the Mazda6 and the Mazda3 bring a lot to the table. While in some ways these vehicles are quite different, in others they are quite similar. Choosing just one can be hard, which is why we've created this comparison.


Both the Mazda3 and the Mazda6 offer a 2.5L four-cylinder engine. For the Mazda3, this generates 186-horsepower with 186 lb-ft of torque.

While this 2.5L engine is the only option for the Mazda3, the Mazda6 is also available with a turbocharged version. These models manage 250-horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque.


One of the most significant differences you will find between these two vehicles involves available body styles.
