Mazda6 vs Toyota Camry

Commuters in Gastonia, Charlotte, and Lincolnton are always on the lookout for a sedan that’ll bring some more excitement to the daily drive. If you have the Mazda6 and the Toyota Camry at the top of your list, they’re both good choices. The question is: Which one will better suit your daily drive?

To help you decide, our team at Mazda of Gastonia has created this Mazda6 vs. Toyota Camry comparison. Let’s see which one comes out on top!

Mazda6 Engine Specs

MAZDA6 vs Toyota Camry: Driving Excitement

If you’re looking for choices, both the Mazda6 and the Toyota Camry can supply them. They both offer two gas-powered engine options. Their standard engines are quite similar. They both produce up to 186 lb-ft of torque.

If you decide to upgrade to the more powerful available engines, you’ll get off the blocks much faster in the Mazda6. Its Skyactiv®-G 2.5T Dynamic Pressure Turbo engine kicks out 301 lb-ft of torque. The available 3.5L V6 of the Camry can only manage 267 lb-ft of torque.

The Mazda6 comes standard with Skyactiv-Vehicle Dynamics with G-Vectoring Control Plus. This Mazda-exclusive technology can seamlessly adjust the power output and shift the vehicle weight. This helps smooth out your ride and keeps you grounded when taking on a tight curve. The Camry doesn’t offer a similar feature!

Mazda6 Interior

MAZDA6 vs Camry: Comfort and Connectivity

When you step inside either sedan, you’ll be welcomed by a wide array of comfort amenities. They both offer available leather-trimmed seats. The Mazda6 separates itself with the refinement of a standard leather-wrapped steering wheel and the customization of standard dual-zone automatic climate control. The Toyota Camry only offers these amenities on its higher trim levels!

To help you keep up with all your apps and your favorite tunes, you’ll have Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration in both sedans. You’ll be able to see even more on the standard 8-inch touchscreen of the Mazda6 when compared to the standard 7-inch touchscreen of the Camry.

Rocking out to your favorite tunes will make every commute go by even faster, and it’ll be even more fun in the Mazda6. It offers an available Bose® audio system with 11 speakers! The available JBL® Premium Audio system of the Camry is maxed out at just nine speakers!


Innovative Safety Features

Both sedans come with a wide array of advanced driver assistive features thanks to their available safety suites. The Camry comes with Toyota Safety Sense™ P. It includes:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

The Mazda6, on the other hand, comes with i-Activsense®. It includes technologies that are very similar to those of the Camry, but it also includes a few exclusive features, like the Adaptive Front-Lighting System. It allows the headlights to pivot as you turn the vehicle. It’ll make it even easier to see around dark corners!

The Mazda6 also offers Traffic Sign Recognition. This available system can read upcoming road signs, and then displays the information on the Active Driving Display. It’ll make it even easier to stay alert out on the road! The Toyota Camry doesn’t offer a similar feature!
