The Elegant 2018 Mazda6 At a Glance:

  • Power & Performance: Most followers of the Mazda6's trajectory will remember its long, single-engine history, but the 2018-model year has brought us a gift: the Mazda6 will have a second, available engine! The first powerplant in the 2018 Mazda6 carries over from the previous generation, the same 2.5-liter inline-four, albeit retuned with cylinder deactivation. The second engine, however, is a new 2.5-liter turbocharged inline-four rated at 250 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque (when you use 93-octane gasoline). The 2018 Mazda6's standard engine is available with a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission, but the turbocharged engine pairs exclusively with the six-speed automatic.
  • Design & Comfort:
    • The design of the 2018 Mazda6 puts an emphasis on flow, and it's the second vehicle on Mazda's roster to take on the brand's newest design language, which you might find familiar from the CX-5 crossover. It offers sharp, angular headlights and a large, five-point grille with chrome accents up front. The fascia essentially melts into a long, elegant body with sumptuous, flowing lines blending the front wheel arches into a tapering, sophisticated body. A long wheelbase and short front overhand give the 2018 Mazda6 a sense of eagerness and athleticism.
    • But that's just the exterior…make your way to the interior and you'll be greeted more of that signature flow, though it's less about the sheet metal and more about soft-touch materials and intuitive design. The front seats have undergone an entire redesign, with an all-new dashboard rounding things out. Mounted on that elegant, stretching dashboard is an 8.0-inch infotainment screen, and if you like big, beautiful digital arrays, an available 7.0-inch digital instrument cluster will certainly delight.
  • Safety Features: With the available i-ACTIVSENSE Safety Technology, the 2018 Mazda6 offers Livonia, CA drivers a little added peace of mind. New for the 2018 model year, an available 360° camera system and adaptive cruise control feature join the already robust offering.

2018 Mazda6 | Competitive Comparisons:

No research routine would be complete without a thorough review of the competition, and the 2018 Mazda6 isn't afraid of a little one-on-one, so follow along with us as we put it to the test; first, we're putting the 2018 Mazda6 up against the 2018 Toyota Camry, then we'll move onto the second contender, the 2018 Honda Accord. Both the 2018 Toyota Camry and 2018 Honda Accord underwent big updates for the 2018-model year, and since the 2018 Mazda6 did as well, we felt like the time was right to put them up against one another. Hope you can keep up!

2018 Mazda6 vs. 2018 Toyota Camry

  • Cylinder Deactivation Technology: One thing the 2018 Mazda6 has over the 2018 Toyota Camry is an efficiency measure found on the available 2.5-liter Mazda engine, called cylinder deactivation. This engine allows cylinders to deactivate between 25 and 50 mph if the load is light and the extra power isn’t necessary, which makes a purely gasoline engine quite efficient. While the 2018 Camry lineup does feature a hybrid option, its gasoline engines don’t feature this kind of fuel-saving feature.
  • New 2018 Mazda6 Signature Trim: New for 2018, the Mazda6 has gotten a new, top-tier trim. With upscale materials, true wood accents, and Nappa leather upholstery, the 2018 Mazda6 Signature offers drivers a genuine sense of calm and elegance, with the cabin of the Signature trim constructed around the driver experience.
  • Style: While the phrase “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” generally rings true, when it comes to the design of the 2018 Toyota Camry compared to that of the 2018 Mazda6, it’s hard to stay open. While the 2018 Toyota Camry is a solid, reliable commuter, it also looks like a solid, reliable commuter; on the other hand, the 2018 Mazda6 is a solid, reliable commuter vehicle, but it looks like a sophisticated take on a sports car. Sure, the 2018 Camry may have had a 2018 redesign, but the 2018 Mazda6 will force you to ask if it really went in the right direction.

2018 Mazda6 vs. 2018 Honda Accord

  • The Perfect Drive: While the 2018 Honda Acord has been rightly commended for its potent powertrains, those who prefer the Mazda6 will appreciate the new-for-2018 engine, an available 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, which pairs with a six-speed automatic transmission, resulting in a very rewarding 250 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. By comparison, the 2018 Honda Accord’s available 2.0-liter engine creates 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque; so, Honda isn’t the only one with a commendable powertrain, eh?
  • Exterior Design: New for the 2018-model year, the Honda Accord’s exterior design hasn’t exactly been evenly received; while some folks like the bold, new fascia, other critics have come down hard on certain aspects, with the word “gaudy” cropping up more than once. While it’s true that the 2018 Mazda6 didn’t receive quite the radical change that the 2018 Honda Accord did, that’s not a bad thing; while familiar, the 2018 Mazda6 is certainly more sophisticated and refined, but it has always been handsome.
  • Interior Design: You could say, things get tight here, the competition is close, and it will real come down to your own personal preference. One thing is for sure, though, both the 2018 Mazda6 and the 2018 Honda Accord have gone upscale inside. Rich materials, real woods and metals, real lathers, and suede trim all give the 2018 Mazda6 a sleek, modern feel inside. But the 2018 Honda Accord has taken a swing for the fences as well, with a premium feel and generous back seat. In our experience, the interior of the 2018 Mazda6 is built for drivers, whereas the 2018 Honda Accord tries to please everyone all the time, which dulls the luster a little bit.
