Nothing Engages Your Emotions Quite So Keenly as the 2017 Mazda6
When Manteca and %%target_cty_2%% drivers sit behind the wheel of a 2017 Mazda6, they’ll be able to count on an engaging drive and top-notch mileage ratings thanks to its sophisticated powertrain. Mazda vehicles have always rested a step above the competition due to their continuing commitment to evolving driving technology. As such, the new Mazda6 is able to drive like a dream while returning efficiency scores you can be proud of.
Powertrain and MPG
Unlike other midsize sedans, the 2017 Mazda6 doesn’t make you pay out for a top-tier model in order to provide high-end power. Instead, it fits a 2.5L SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY four-cylinder engine across all trim levels. With the ability to command up to 184-hp and 185 lb.-ft. of torque, it’s one of the most powerful standard engines in the segment.
Just check out how it compares to the competition:
- 2017 Ford Fusion: Up to 175-hp as standard.
- 2017 Toyota Camry: Up to 178-hp as standard.
- 2017 Volkswagen Passat: Up to 170-hp as standard.
The 2017 Mazda6 outstrips such models with ease, and the engine’s refined design means that you won’t have to consume inordinate levels of fuel in order to do so.
Sport and Touring models come with a six-speed manual transmission system as standard, yielding up to an impressive 24 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway*. The Grand Touring is equipped with a six-speed automatic system that actually increases efficiency scores up to a phenomenal 26 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway*.
Driving Matters® has become the guiding philosophy for all Mazda vehicles, and this isn’t just a marketing ploy. Each model embraces a KODO “Soul of Motion” design aesthetic to ensure perfect balance, and drivers from Lanthrop and Turlock will find themselves enjoying an unparalleled ride.
The engine responds with lively acceleration when you put your foot down, allowing you to pass on the highway with ease, get off the line in a hurry, and generally enjoy the kind of fleet-footed driving dynamics you wouldn’t commonly expect from a midsize family sedan.
At the same time, engine, wind, and road noise has been expertly managed; this might feel like a sport sedan when you hit the gas, but the interior remains utterly refined. You even have the option to alter the way your Mazda6 behaves on the road thanks to two wheel options; for a softer feel, just choose 17-inch wheels over the optional 19-inch alternatives.
