If you’re looking for a sporty five-passenger sedan, you’ve probably taken notice of both the 2017 Mazda6 and the 2017 Toyota Camry. Both offer Mt. Holly drivers features like voice activation, Bluetooth® phone connectivity and audio streaming, and cabin comforts such as a pollen and particle filter for keeping the cabin fresh and free from allergens. But before you flip a coin to make what may seem like a difficult decision, be sure to dig deeper and see how these sedans really compare. We examined the Mazda6 and the Camry side-by-side, and the winner was clear. Read on to learn more about our findings.

Price and Power

Usually, the two most important numbers for comparison when shopping for a new vehicle are sticker price and power rating. In both these categories, the 2017 Mazda6 stands as a clear winner over the 2017 Toyota Camry. The Mazda6 Sport MT starts at just $21,945 MSRP, compared to the costlier $23,070 MSRP of the base model Toyota Camry LE. Both vehicles feature a 2.5L I4 engine, but the Mazda6 does more with its engine, able to create 185 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque, compared to only 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque for the Camry.

Standard and Available Features

Since the Camry’s starts out much higher than the Mazda6 in terms of price, does that mean you’ll find it equipped with more standard features? While you might think so, surprisingly, that’s not the case. The Mazda6 offers a well-appointed cabin for an elevated driving experience that you just won’t find with the Camry. Features like a leather steering wheel, exterior mirrors with built-in turn signals, and alloy wheels are all standard on the base model Mazda6, but you’ll have to upgrade to a higher trim level and tack on even higher costs to find them on the Camry. And if you’d like to choose features like fog lights, a remote start, or universal garage door opener for your sedan, all are available upgrades on the base Mazda6 yet unavailable on the Camry LE.

Room for Everyone

It’s true that both sedans offer seating for five, but just how comfortable will your passengers be in back? Think of how many times you have climbed into the back seat of a car to find it falls short on comfort; often, unless you’re in one the front two seats, you’re in for a cramped experience you’re hoping will pass quickly. Luckily, that’s not the case with the Mazda6, where both front and rear passengers enjoy a whopping 56.1 inches of legroom. There simply isn’t a bad seat to be had! Compare that to the 2017 Camry’s 41.6 inches of legroom in front and 38.9 inches of legroom in back, and it’s easy to see why drivers around Shelby prefer the Mazda6 for passenger comfort.
