The 2014 Mazda6 vs. the 2014 Chevy Impala

2014 Mazda6With a complete redesign, the all-new, 2014 Mazda6 is one of the best choices in the four-door class for Tampa and Bradenton drivers. It holds this honor by offering class-leading fuel economy, a great list of standard features, and near unrivaled performance.

Chevy also recently redesigned the Impala for the 2014 model year. For drivers concerned about fuel economy and value, though, the Mazda6 may be the better choice. Let’s take a closer look at how the 2014 Mazda6 stacks up against the redesigned 2014 Chevy Impala.

Price and Fuel Economy

While the 2014 Impala has a suggested starting price of around $27,000, the 2014 Mazda6 starts around $21,000. Despite this price difference, Mazda drivers don’t miss much. This is evident when looking at the engine

The 2014 Mazda6 is equipped with a powerful SKYACTIV 184 hp engine with a fuel efficiency estimate of 38 mpg on the highway with the automatic transmission option. In comparison, its maximum highway fuel efficiency is also 38 mpg. Why pay $6000 more then?

Vehicle Features

Mazda hasn’t cut corners with features either. On base level model, it still delivers:

  • Bluetooth connectivity for handsfree calling and audio streaming on automatic transmission models
  • A rearview camera on automatic transmission models
  • Steering-wheel mounted audio controls

It also comes with features that are non-standard on the Impala, including a leather steering wheel, overhead console storage, and an outside temperature gauge.
