Entry-Level Engine

Starting off the 2018 Mazda6 engine lineup is a 2.5L SKYACTIV®-G four-cylinder engine, which delivers 187 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque. There are two transmission choices – the SKYACTIV®-MT 6-speed overdrive, or the SKYACTIV®-Drive 6-speed automatic with manual shift and sport mode. With the manual transmission, EPA estimates come in at 24 mpg city and 33 mpg highway.* Meanwhile, the automatic transmission boosts EPA estimates to 26 mpg city and 35 mpg highway*.

The difference between the two transmission options:

  • SKYACTIV®-Drive 6-speed automatic: Promises enhanced control for precision, responsiveness and efficiency
  • SKYACTIV®-MT 6-speed manual: Proves ideal for Sarasota drivers who enjoy the feel of a manual and is inspired by the Mazda MX-5 Miata

Secondary Engine

The other engine available on the 2018 Mazda6 is a 2.5T SKYACTIV®-G four-cylinder, which increases output to 250 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. Only the automatic transmission is offered, and fuel economy remains strong considering the output, with EPA estimates of 23 mpg city and 31 mpg highway*.

Performance Features

In addition to strong engine options, there are also several 2018 Mazda6 performance features available, such as:

  • SKYACTIV®-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control, which adjusts power delivery when turning for a smoother ride
  • Anti-lock Braking System with Electronic Brake Force Distribution and Brake Assist
  • 4-Wheel independent Suspension
  • Front-wheel drive
