If you think the Mazda6 is just another midsize family sedan, it’s time to take another look. When you get your first look at the 2019 Mazda6 at a dealership like the Henderson area Mazda dealer, you’ll notice it’s beautifully sculpted exterior. Step inside and you’ll be treated to a sophisticated cabin you’d expect to find on a sports sedan that costs a lot more. Put it all together and you get the perfect combination of upmarket quality and the unbeatable driving dynamics Mazda is known for.
The Mazda 6 is revised for 2018, with updated exterior styling, a revamped cabin and an added available engine. The Mazda6’s new 2.5-liter turbo-four utilizes cylinder deactivation technology and gets a slight boost in power. Additionally, the chassis has been returned and the interior noise levels have been significantly reduced. According to the Mazda dealer near Henderson, there’s a new Grand Touring Reserve trim, as well as a new upper Signature trim level. The Signature is replete with amenities such as premium leather, wood trim, and a wide array of standard features.
Car and Driver was impressed by the 2019 Mazda3, writing: “If you weren't given the context that the 6's interior is from, well, the Mazda 6, you'd be forgiven for thinking it belonged in a much pricier car. The quality of the materials impresses, as does the upscale, mature design and restrained detailing. ... the cabin is first-rate and best in class.”
The 2019 Mazda6 seats five and is offered in five trim levels: Sport, Touring, Grand Touring, Grand Touring Reserve and Signature. Powering the Mazda6 is a standard 2.5-liter SkyActiv four-cylinder engine that generates 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. The other engine is the 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder mentioned earlier. This block puts out 250 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are mated to a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic, although you can only get the manual on the Sport trim.
Fuel economy is excellent. The non-turbo unit gets an EPA-estimated 26 mpg city/36 mpg highway, while the turbo delivers 23 mpg city/31 mpg highway.*
The base Sport trim makes a powerful statement with its beautiful body lines. Standard features include twin exhaust outlets and LED headlights. The optional 19-inch alloys give the Mazda6 has an especially bold stance.
Inside, there’s ample legroom to keep the driver and passengers comfortable. High-quality materials are used throughout the cabin. Drivers will appreciate the leather-wrapped steering wheel, which comes standard on every trim. The Signature trim adds amenities like microfiber suede and ventilated Nappa leather seats.
Also standard is push-button start, an 8.0-inch touchscreen and Bluetooth. Music lovers will enjoy the optional 11-speaker surround-sound audio system. The driver will appreciate the Active Driving Display with traffic sign recognition which projects driving data onto the windshield. Options include a digital gauge cluster, a surround-view camera system and navigation.
