If you’re on the hunt for a new midsize sedan, we don’t need to tell you that there are many options to choose from. Drivers seem to flock to the Toyota Camry by default, as it is seen as the “safe” answer. While we won’t deny that the Camry is a reliable sedan, there is another viable option lurking in the shadows that is ready to pounce: the Mazda6. Bordering on luxury with a wide array of available features to choose from, the Mazda6 has some compelling amenities to take note of. The enhanced powertrain now includes an available turbocharged 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that can get a powerful 250 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque, which the Camry can’t quite match. Check out the head to head comparisons in the table below!

Perhaps the aspect of the Mazda6 that is most impressive is all the features it offers even in the base trim. While the Camry makes some of their active safety features optional, the Mazda6 comes standard across the board with highlights such as Lane Departure Warning, Smart Brake Support with Collision Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Monitor, and more. These functional features will act as a second set of eyes on the road and assist you when you need it most, keeping you safe and secure when you get in tight situations.
If you’re looking for a step up from these features, you can opt for one of the higher trim levels such as the Signature trim. This trim enters the luxury segment with exquisite interior detailing. It has Nappa leather-trimmed seating with heating and ventilation as well as genuine Sen wood trim. Audio and infotainment are provided by features that include an 8-inch touchscreen display with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as well as a Bose® Centerpoint2® Surround Sound System. Other interior highlights include a Mazda Navigation System, 360º View Monitor, Active Driving Display, and much more.
