With several well-equipped cars available in the 2021 Mazda lineup, making a final selection that you are confident about may require research and a few test drives. At Suburban Mazda of Farmington Hills, car shoppers are often drawn to the magnetic qualities of the Mazda3 and the Mazda6. The Mazda3 is a compact model that is offered in both hatchback and sedan styles. In the current lineup, it sits below the Mazda6 midsize sedan. What do you need to know about these cars before you stop by for a test drive?


You will be in control of a well-engineered car regardless of the Mazda car and trim that you pick out. The same two powertrains are available for the Mazda3 and the Mazda6 in the 2021 model year. The first few trims in each model have a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that puts out 187 horsepower. The top trim levels add Dynamic Pressure engineering to the four-cylinder powertrain, and the result is the production of 227 horsepower.


The front ends and sides of the Mazda3 and the Mazda6 are closely matched. They both have a gorgeous swell over the front fenders that cascades at a substantial angle through the side doors. They also have Mazda’s current grille design with chrome accents and integrated, angled LED lights. The Mazda3’s rear and profile, however, stand apart. Both the sedan and hatchback versions of the Mazda3 have a shorter rear with unique taillights. The Mazda6 adds a chrome accent bar that runs horizontally along the trunk lid.


These Mazda car models share a clean, modern interior design. They also have Connected Car services, Apple CarPlay, a sound system, an auto climate management system, a keyless ignition, leather material, and Android Auto in select or all trim levels. The Mazda3’s display screen is shorter, wider, and more angled than the Mazda6’s screen. At the base Mazda6 trim and higher, you can appreciate equipment like auto-leveling headlights, blind spot monitoring, and a few other features that are not standard across the full Mazda3 line.
