red 2018 mazda6 vs red 2018 mazda6

The Mazda6 line is the pinnacle of Mazda sedans and a favorite of sedan-enthusiasts everywhere. The hardest decision isn’t whether or not to get a Mazda6; it’s which Mazda6 to get. That’s why we’re taking the time today to compare two popular models: the 2018 Mazda6 Sport and the 2018 Mazda6 Touring.

At the most basic comparison-level, the 2018 Mazda6 Sport is the base model of the Mazda6 line, and so it starts out at a lower price. However, the 2018 Mazda6 Touring possesses more technology and performance features to make the higher price worth it for many drivers. If you’re caught in a decision-making dilemma between these two models, hopefully we can help. Read on to find out how the 2018 Mazda6 Sport sizes up against the 2018 Mazda6 Touring.

The 2018 Mazda6 Sport and the 2018 Mazda6 Touring are available here at Hall Mazda in Brookfield, WI

As you can see in the chart above, the 2018 Mazda6 Sport and the 2018 Mazda6 Touring are perhaps more similar than different. They have the exact same, extremely-economical ability to get 26 miles-per gallon in the city, and 35 miles-per gallon on the highway. Their engines and horsepower are also the same, as is their 186 torque and their SKYACTIV ® Drive 6-Speed automatic transmission with Sport Mode and their SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control.

These models may be look-alikes, but they aren’t clones. The Touring comes with Auto on/off headlights, while the Sport features Auto-off headlights only. The Touring also includes High Beam Control, Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry System, Rain-sensing variable intermittent windshield wipers, and more that the Sport does not offer. On the inside, the Touring comes with USB ports and leather-trimmed sport seats, while the Sport comes standard with cloth-trimmed sport seats.

Now that you know how these two models compare, it is time to choose one for yourself. Hopefully, this comparison has made it clear which vehicle is the right choice for you, but if not, a test drive may can be your deciding factor.
