Sedans do not have to be boring. The Mazda6 shows us how it's done.
The Mazda6 has always been a favorite, thanks to its stunning good looks and fun-to-drive characteristics.
For 2018 the fog lights have been integrated right into the headlights.
However, most of the exterior remains the same.
The big news is the addition of a turbocharger to the 2.5-liter engine on upper trims, spitting out 250 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque.
A six-speed manual is only standard on the base Sport model, which features a naturally-aspirated 2.5-liter power plant. Other trims get a six-speed automatic.
Power goes to the front wheels only in the Mazda6. All-wheel drive is not available.
The gorgeous Soul Red paint is a $750 option and completely worth the price.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are not available... yet. They will both be available as an upgrade this summer and the tech will be factory-installed by the end of 2018.
Driver's aids like blind-spot monitoring, lane-keep assist and adaptive cruise control are standard across all trim lines save for the base, and then you can snag them in a $625 package.
The 2018 Mazda6 starts at $21,950, but the top of the line Signature trim in this gallery bumps that price up to $34,750.
