2018 Mazda6 Driving

The 2018 Mazda6 naturally projects sportiness through its KODO “Soul of Motion” design, but its image is far more than a mere façade. The Mazda6 backs up its keen looks with a confident powertrain, premium performance, and efficiency that can only be achieved by way of Mazda’s SKYACTIVⓇ-G technology. Critics are big fans of its performance, with The Car Connection writing, “Subtle tweaks this year to its suspension result in a smoother, more composed ride” in their recent Mazda6 review. Learn what makes this midsize sedan stand out against the competition and why it’s getting such strong reviews this year. Then take one for a test drive near Kings Mountain!

2018 Mazda6 Provides Fun and Fuel-Efficient Performance

    • The Mazda6 provides a SKYACTIVⓇ-G 2.5L DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder engine with direct injection and a direct coil-on-plug electronic ignition.

  • Built for Strength
    • The body and chassis of the Mazda6 have been built to improve efficiency by being more lightweight and maintaining stiff, responsive dynamics.
