Gastonia drivers in the market for a finely-appointed sedan have several choices at their disposal, and if they want features like Bluetooth® streaming for audio and voice activated controls, then the 2017 Mazda6 and 2017 Nissan Altima are great choices. But when you want a cabin that’s roomy, comfortable, and loaded with enhanced standard features, the 2017 Mazda6 shows itself to be the best choice for Shelby and Mt. Holly drivers. Want to know more? Read on to see how the two vehicles compare.

Price and Power

The price tag on the base models for both the 2017 Mazda6 and the 2017 Nissan Altima are within reach of one another, though the Mazda6 still has an edge with its base model sport trim coming in at $21,945 MSRP, compared to $22,500 for the Altima 2.5. And while both feature a 2.5L I4 engine, the Mazda6 does more with it, generating 184 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque, compared to 179 hp and 177 lb-ft for the Altima.

If you want to go fully-loaded, the price gap widens even further when you compare the top-tier models. The Altima 3.5 SL comes in at $32,690, whereas the Mazda6 Grand Touring keeps luxury appointments at a much more reasonable $30,695 MSRP.

Standard Features

While their prices may be comparable, you get so much more for your money when you choose the Mazda6. Features like a leather-wrapped steering wheel, lumbar support, cruise control, and daytime running lights are all standard equipment on the Mazda6, and none are even available as upgrades to the base model Nissan Altima 2.5. You’d have to jump to a much higher trim level to even consider having those amenities. And the list doesn’t end there – the Mazda6 also features alloy wheels, a signaling exterior mirror, and an interior pollen/particle/dust filter system on every single trim; again, none are available on the base model Altima.

Plus, when you want total comfort for all occupants, the Mazda6 shines all the brighter for Gastonia drivers. This is because the Mazda6 offer 38.7 inches of rear legroom and 56.1 inches of hiproom for rear passengers, granting even those in the back seat the luxury to stretch out plenty. By comparison, the Nissan Altima offers only 36.1 inches of legroom and 52.1 inches of hiproom for those in back. Ouch!
