Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)

The 2018 Mazda6 is a front-drive midsize sedan that slots above the Mazda3 and is available in four trims.

Performance and Fuel Economy
The 2018 Mazda6 comes standard with a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter I-4 paired to a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. Power figures should be the same as in the CX-5, which is 187 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque. Mazda’s new 2.5-liter turbo-four with 250 hp (227 hp on regular fuel) and 310 lb-ft is optional and is only available with the six-speed automatic. EPA fuel economy ratings are 26/35 mpg city/highway with the automatic, 24/33 mpg with the manual, and 23/31 mpg with the turbo-four.

The 2018 Mazda6 received a five-star overall rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars). The IIHS hasn’t tested the 2018 model yet but the 2017 Mazda6 received a Good score on all crashworthiness tests and an Average rating on the headlights test (Good is the highest possible score).

In the IIHS’ front crash prevention test, the 2017 Mazda6 received a Superior rating after it avoided a 12-mph collision and reduced the speed of a 25-mph impact by 24 mph (Superior is the highest rating for the front crash prevention test). With its solid crash and front crash prevention scores, the 2017 Mazda6 received the Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS.
Available active safety features include adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, and lane keeping assist. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are available on all trims.

The 2018 Mazda6 has a 14.8-cubic-foot trunk that can be expanded via the 60/40 split-folding rear seats.
What We Think

In a 2016 First Test, we said that the Mazda6 is fun to drive and offers great steering feel. However, it does suffer from excessive road noise with the optional 19-inch alloy wheels. The infotainment system works fine, but we wish the system offered Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The naturally aspirated 2.5-liter I-4 offers acceptable power and, helpfully, the six-speed automatic transmission is not stingy with downshifts.
Cool Fact

The 2018 Mazda6 is the second model to use the automaker’s 2.5-liter turbo-four after the three-row CX-9.
