The Mazda 6 series has always been on the top of the list we make every year of our favorite family cars. When Mazda released the 2020 edition of its 6 series, we realized, we liked it even more with all the positive changes it comes with.
Much like us, we also heard from a group of professional drivers at the showroom of San Luis Obispo Mazda that it one of the best compact cars that they have driven so far, while the owners on the same showroom floor admitted that they loved this switch from crossover to sedan that gave them a unique identity.
Anyone who gets to see the 2020 Mazda 6 will agree that it is a standout model among all other sedans in thisera when crossovers and SUVs have taken over the automotive market. For us it is its head-turning style which is perfectly matched to its sharp handling that drew us closer to the model, while knowing the great value it packs in made us count it among the wish list of purchase.
Trims for the 2020 Year Lineup
For the year 2020, Mazda continues the 6 series in the same trim levels, that was there last year. The lineup for 2020 sees at the base the Sport trim, while stepping up you get Touring, Grand Touring, and Grand Touring Reserve trims with higher standards of comfort, luxury, and convenience.
Options Under the Hood
Even at the lowest level the 2020 Mazda 6 is powered by a 2.5-liter inline-4 engine in tune with a 6-speed automatic transmission that together can produce 187 horsepower. For those who need a zestier performance, Mazda offers them the turbo version of the same engine that can crank 250-hp that drives with a much more sporty spirit. Front-wheel drive is set to be the standard drivetrain on all 2020 Mazda 6 models for this year.
Fuel economy with these powertrain options is decent in the 2020 Mazda 6 as it scores 29 mpg from a combined trip as rated by the EPA, while the number will come down to 26 mpg if you drive the turbocharged model.
Value Based Features
As said earlier, the 2020 Mazda 6 is also a great choice, when you are looking for a value packed sedan. All the trim models come equipped with dual-zone climate control, an 8.0-inch touchscreen display for the infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
You can stay connected with the help of two USB inputs, Bluetooth, and more options of connectivity if you are ready to go for thehigher trims like Touring.
The last but not the least, the 2020Mazda 6 also proves itself to be a safer car to drive. We got to know from the Mazda dealer near San Luis Obispo that, to gain this trust of people, Mazda has made all the active safety technology as standard on across the entire 2020 year lineup that includes automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitors, active lane control, and adaptive cruise control.
