Standard Power and Fuel Economy

If you’re looking for the vehicle that gets more standard power and better standard fuel economy, you'll want to opt for the 2017 Mazda6:

  • Mazda6 – Every version of the Mazda6 comes standard with a 2.5L four-cylinder SKYACTIV®-G engine mated to a six-speed automatic SKYACTIV®-Drive or six-speed manual SKYACTIV®-MT transmission. This setup is good for 184 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque, which is enough power to move the Mazda6 from 0 to 60 mph in just 7.6 seconds. In spite of that impressive getup, the Mazda6 is still able to get up to an EPA-estimated 35 mpg highway and 26 mpg city.
  • Toyota Camry – The base engine on the Camry is also a 2.5L four-cylinder engine. It comes with a six-speed automatic transmission but only produces 178 hp and 170 lb-t of torque, failing to move from 0 to 60 mph in less than 8.3 seconds. In addition to that, fuel economy tops out at an EPA-estimated 35 mpg highway and 25 mpg city.

Standard Features

The Mazda6 and Toyota Camry both come with standard features like Bluetooth® handsfree phone access, a rearview camera, power windows and door locks, keyless entry, push-button start, and air conditioning. Unlike the Toyota Camry, though, the Mazda6 also gets standard HD Radio, Bluetooth® streaming audio, and streaming internet radio. On top of that, the Mazda6 gets a MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen interface, while the Toyota Camry only gets a 6.1-inch Entune™ touchscreen interface.
