Lower Starting Price

If you’re going for value, the 2016 Mazda6 is a sure bet thanks to a low starting price for such a strong performance and feature list:

  • 2016 Mazda6 Price: MSRP from $21,495
  • 2015 Toyota Camry Price: MSRP from $22,970

Better All-Around Performance

When you’re looking for power and variety in your powertrain, the 2016 Mazda6 is a better choice than the 2015 Toyota Camry. Standard power on the 2016 Mazda comes from a 2.5L four-cylinder engine that makes 184 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque delivered to the front wheels. The base trim as well as the midlevel trim can be paired with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, while the topmost trim is only matched to the automatic, complete with paddle shifters on the steering wheel that give the driver a stronger feeling of control. As far as fuel economy is concerned, the Mazda6 reaches up to an impressive EPA-estimated 38 mpg highway

Meanwhile, the 2015 Toyota Camry starts off with a similar 2.5L four-cylinder, but this powertrain only generates 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque. It’s also only comes with an automatic transmission. Even when it comes to fuel economy, the Camry falls short, reaching just 35 mpg highway according to the EPA.

More Available Features

Just because you opt for a lower trim level doesn’t mean that you should compromise high-tech conveniences and features, and the 2016 Mazda6 is proof that’s possible. At its base trim, you can add on a navigational aid, remote car start, and a universal garage door opener, while the 2015 Toyota Camry’s entry-level model has no such offerings. What’s more, the 2016 Mazda6 comes standard with nice luxury touches like a leather-wrapped steering wheel and an available electrochromic mirror, where again the Camry is limited in what it can provide. To top it all off, the Mazda6 comes with signaling exterior mirrors and alloy wheels, the former of which is not available on the Camry, while the latter is only optional.
