Overview

What's New in the 2018 MAZDA MAZDA6?

For 2018, the Mazda6 gets a thorough makeover, with improved styling, better ergonomics and a more powerful turbocharged engine option. The interior has been completely remade, with wider seats, a more streamlined dash and premium materials. The base 2.5-liter engine gains cylinder deactivation.

Which MAZDA6 is the Best?

In the Mazda6's case, we'd go with either the Touring trim for its balance of equipment, driver assists and price, or the turbocharged Grand Touring Reserve for its combination of power, features and interior upgrades. If you're all about shifting your own gears, the smaller Mazda3 is a better choice because, unlike the Mazda6, it offers a manual transmission on the well-equipped Grand Touring trim.

Competition

2018 MAZDA MAZDA6 vs the competition

2018 Honda Accord -- The Accord offers a larger trunk and better fuel economy, plus you can have a manual transmission with the turbocharged engine. Unlike the Mazda6, the Accord offers a hybrid model and holds superior resale values.

2018 Toyota Camry -- The Camry offers a high-mileage hybrid trim and V6 engine option, but it's not as sporty as the Mazda6, and its interior isn't as polished. Android Auto isn't available on the Toyota, but the Camry does hold its value better than the Mazda6.

2018 Ford Fusion -- The Fusion offers more engine choices, optional all-wheel drive and both hybrid and plug-in hybrid models. It's also a very sporty drive, with lots of high-tech features.

Used Audi A4 -- For about the price of a new Grand Touring trim, you can pick up a nicely optioned 2014-2016 Audi A4 and get more features, luxury, performance and style, plus the option of quattro all-wheel drive.
