The 2017 Mazda6 Continues To Shine At Tempe Mazda Dealers

The 2017 Mazda6 continues to be one of the best-selling midsize sedans in today’s market, and the folks at a Tempe Mazda dealer see no signs of that changing. It’s easy to understand the reason. The family-friendly Mazda6 features attractive styling, sensational performance and athletic handling. Most importantly, the Mazda6 is fun to drive. These are just some of the reasons why anyone looking for a midsize sedan should seriously consider the Mazda6.

Edmunds gave the Mazda6 an ‘A’ rating, due to its abundant standard and available features, excellent fuel economy and high level of comfort.

The 2017 Mazda6 seats five and is available in Sport, Touring and Grand Touring trim levels. Powering the Mazda6 is a 2.5-liter, Skyactiv-G four-cylinder engine that makes 184 horsepower and 185 lb.-ft. of torque. The Grand Touring gets a standard six-speed automatic transmission that’s optional on the Sport and Touring trims, which are equipped with a standard six-speed manual.

In Edmunds testing, the Mazda6 outfitted with the automatic gearbox made the zero-to-60 mph sprint in 7.6 seconds, a great time for a vehicle in its class. The Mazda6 with the manual transmission reached 60 mph in 8.1 seconds.

Here’s what Edmunds wrote about the Mazda6’s powerplant: “Mazda has carved a niche for itself as a manufacturer of cars that are more engaging to drive than your typical family vehicle. The Mazda6 maintains this reputation with a responsive engine that delivers strong acceleration and power that is always on tap.”
