2019 Mazda6 vs. 2018 Mazda6
As the model year starts to hit its stride, Bert Ogden Mazda in Edinburg product experts have been fielding a lot of questions from customers wondering about the differences between the 2019 Mazda6 vs. 2018 Mazda6. When a potential buyer walks into our showroom it will likely be pretty difficult for them to distinguish between the two model years of the Mazda flagship sedan based on the exterior elements of the two sedans on their own. However, looking under the hood and inside of the passenger cabin will reveal a whole host of changes and upgrades that will impress the most skeptical customers. The 2019 Mazda6 has a slightly revised equipment list, more trims feature the automaker’s suite of active safety systems and Mazda engineers have improved the 2019 Mazda sedan’s handling characteristics.

Having an infotainment system that is compatible with smartphones is all but a necessity in today’s automotive industry. The 2018 Mazda6 was the first of the automaker’s vehicles to offer this kind of compatibility, but most owners would have to have the software upgraded after purchase. For the current model year, Touring trims of the 2019 Mazda6 will be available with access to the Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ suites straight from the factory. Additionally, the 2019 Mazda6 makes the automaker’s i-ACTIVSENSE® system standard equipment. This bundle includes forward-collision warning, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and lane-keep assist. The i-ACTIVSENSE® system was optional equipment for the 2018 Mazda6. Mazda still doesn’t offer its all-wheel-drive system with its midsize sedan. However, they have made G-Vectoring Control Plus standard equipment which will improve handling.

The 2019 Mazda6 and its 2018 predecessor use the same power plant. Under the hood is the SKYACTIV®-G 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine. Buyers choosing the 2019 version will be getting a six-speed automatic transmission, the 2018 version uses a six-speed manual as standard equipment. The automatic gear-changer is optional. Regardless, the standard powertrain of both model years will make 186 horsepower and 187 pound-feet of torque. Upper trims add a turbocharger to the engine that will push the performance output to 227 horsepower with regular-grade gasoline, but up to 250 horsepower with premium-grade fuel. The turbocharged engine will make 310 pound-feet of torque regardless of the fuel used. This is true for both the 2019 and 2018 models of the Mazda6.
