2014 Mazda6 Vs. 2013 Chrysler 200

The 2014 Mazda6 vs. the 2013 Chrysler 200

The 2014 Mazda6 is revolutionizing the automobile industry with its fantastic approach to vehicle design. Mazda took its large sedan model back to the drawing board and completely redesigned the Mazda6 for the 2014 model year. The result is a vehicle that is stronger, lighter, safer, and more fuel efficient than before. Tampa-area drivers will find the 2014 Mazda6 currently available at Cox Mazda.

We understand, thought, our customers are likely looking at other models too. The 2013 Chrysler 200 is another similarly-priced model in the sedan class and a competitor to the Mazda6. It can’t compete with either the power or the fuel savings that the 2014 Mazda6 has to offer, though. Here’s how the two models match up.

Vehicle Performance

Under the hood of the 2014 Mazda6 is a 2.5L Inline four-cylinder engine with an amazing power output of 184 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque at 3250rpm. Despite this awesome amount of engine strength, the Mazda6 still gets an incredible estimated 37 mpg with the manual transmission and 38mpg with the automatic.

The 2013 Chrysler 200, in comparison, is equipped with a 2.4L Inline four-cylinder engine with a power output of 173 hp and 166 lb-ft of torque at 4400 rpm. The greater, lower end torque on the Mazda6 means it will have better acceleration than the Chrysler 200. And despite its lower engine power, the Chrysler 200 is only estimated to get 29 mpg on the highway with its four-speed automatic transmission.

Vehicle Features

Besides the obvious difference in fuel savings and power, the Mazda6 is available with several features that are unavailable to Chrysler 200 drivers:

  • Front power memory seat for the driver, and a multi-adjustable power seat for the passenger
  • Overhead console storage
  • Cargo area tie-downs
  • Remote fuel door release
