Buyers looking for more power can choose the Grand Touring, Grand Touring Reserve or Signature trims, which are outfitted with a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 250 hp and 310 lb-ft. Both engines are paired to a six-speed automatic transmission.

The 2020 Mazda6 continues to earn favorable reviews from the automotive media.
