The 2020 Mazda6 remains one of the sportier options in the midsize sedan segment.

Mazda6 Sport comes standard with the full suite of i-Activsense safety features, which includes Mazda Radar Cruise Control with stop and go function, Advanced Smart City Brake Support with Pedestrian Detection, Smart Brake Support with Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning with Lane-Keep Assist and Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.

Inside, occupants can enjoy the Mazda Connect infotainment system with eight-inch full color, touch screen display, six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth phone and audio pairing, two USB ports, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, dual-zone climate control, push-button start, remote keyless entry and electronic parking brake.

More standard premium features that provide convenience and style for owners include automatic on/off headlights, High Beam Control, rain sensing windshield wipers, rearview camera, seat belt reminder indicator for all passengers, LED headlight with auto-leveling, LED taillights, 17-inch alloy wheels and dual exhaust outlets.

Mazda6 Grand Touring trim levels and above feature larger front ventilated brake discs. This trim level also adds a BOSE 11-speaker premium audio system, SiriusXM satellite radio with three-month trial subscription, auto-diming interior mirror and driver-side mirror, heated side mirrors and paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel.

All 2020 Mazda6 trim levels come equipped with G-Vectoring Control Plus and are available with either a Skyactiv-G 2.5-litre engine that is rated to deliver 187 hp and 186 lb/ft of torque or a turbocharged Skyactiv-G 2.5T engine, which can generate a robust 310 lb/ft of torque from just 2,000 rpm and up to 250 hp with 93 octane gasoline (227 horsepower with 87 octane gasoline).

To build upon the fuel efficiency Mazda’s Skyactiv engines are known for, cylinder-deactivation technology is standard on Mazda6’s 2.5-litre engine, which shuts off its two outside cylinders in cruising conditions for even more efficiency.

A quick-shifting Skyactiv-Drive six-speed automatic transmission is equipped on all Mazda6 models and includes a Sport Mode that recalibrates the gear ratios for more spirited driving.
