The Mazda6 may not have the long history of the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, however, it has been in the game for about 15 years now. The midsize sedan class remains very competitive, and we have five reasons to step outside the box and go with a 2017 Mazda6.

Confident Drive

Even though the Mazda6 has only one engine choice, it is very capable of dong it all. The engine delivers a confident drive in almost any driving situation. The power comes from a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder good for 184 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque. It really shines, however, through corners and turns. The Mazda6 brings fun and excitement to a midsize family sedan.

Fuel Saver

An efficient engine is important these days, especially with higher gas prices, and the Mazda6 is going to really save you at the pump. We are talking 35 miles per gallon on the highway with the automatic transmission. That number drops slightly to 34 mpg highway in manual transmission form. We do have to say, if you enjoy shifting, go for the stick because it does add fun to the drive.

Great Design

Take a good look at the design of the Mazda6. From head to toe, the design team worked hard to create a beauty. It starts up front with an aggressive, athletic grille. Move on to the rear, and there are standard LED combination taillights and dual chrome-tipped exhausts. The Grand Touring trim level even has LED foglights and a cool rear spoiler. Overall, it's one of the best-looking midsize sedans on the market.

Premium Features

Even a leather-wrapped steering wheel comes standard, but the Touring and Grand Touring trim levels get all sorts of premium touches. You can opt for an amazing 11-speaker Bose system with Surround Sound. You can also get the available Active Drive Display, which can even tell you the speed limit and keep you focused on the road in front of you.

Reassuring Safety

In base form, there are rear parking sensors and a rearview camera which are very helpful especially in tight spaces. But of course, the top trim levels give you a bit more safety, such as rear cross-traffic alert and blind spot monitoring. There are a number of other innovative safety features as well, but you should feel reassured knowing the Mazda6 earned a top 5-star overall government crash test rating.

Autotrader Says

In the competitive midsize sedan segment, the fun-to-drive 2017 Mazda6 stands out from the crowd. You should definitely check one out before making your final decision.
