The 2017 Mazda6 Serves Up Fun, Fuel-Efficient Performance


The 2017 Mazda6 naturally projects sportiness through its KODO “Soul of Motion” design, but this image is far more than a mere façade. The Mazda6 backs up its keen looks with a confident powertrain and premium performance and efficiency that can only be achieved by way of Mazda’s SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY. Learn what makes this midsize sedan stand out against the competition and why it’s getting such strong reviews this year by taking it for a test drive at Momentum Mazda in Gastonia, NC, just down the road from Mt. Holly.

Engine Performance and Efficiency

Under the hood of the 2017 Mazda6, you’ll find a SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder engine that comes with direct injection and a direct coil-on-plug electronic ignition. This system is able to provide a total output of 184 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque. Plus, even in spite of those impressive numbers, it’s still able to get up to an EPA-estimated 35 mpg highway and 26 mpg city.


Far from just an efficient approach to engine design, SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY is the comprehensive system that helps make the Mazda6 the efficient, responsive piece of advanced machinery it is. This includes:

  • Transmissions – Choose between a smooth and efficient SKYACTIV®-Drive six-speed automatic transmission and a SKYACTIV®-MT six-speed manual.
  • From-the-Ground-Up Approach – The body and chassis of the Mazda6 have been built to improve efficiency with a lightweight design while also bringing stiff, responsive dynamics to the table.
  • SKYACTIV®-Vehicle Dynamics with G-Vectoring Control – This feature is able to adjust the amount of power being delivered to the wheels when you’re cornering in order to provide improvements in both stability and comfort that make a big difference.
