2018 Mazda3 near Madison, WI

2018 Mazda3 For Sale Near Madison, WI

The 2018 Mazda6 and the 2018 Mazda3 are similar to one another, and they’re both excellent sedans. Regardless of which you select, you’ll have a peppy sedan that’s fun to drive and comes with lots of feature options. Nevertheless, there are a few differences between these models because the Mazda6 is a full-size sedan and the Mazda3 is a mid-sized one.

Space Advantage: 2018 Mazda3

Even though the 2018 Mazda3 is a class-size smaller than the 2018 Mazda6, the Mazda3 still manages to have an advantage when it comes interior space.

The sedan version of the 2018 Mazda3 certainly has less room than the 2018 Mazda6. For example, the 2018 Mazda6’s trunk is 2.3 cubic feet larger (14.7 cu. ft. vs 12.4 cu. ft.).

The 2018 Mazda3 is available in a five-door hatchback version that the 2018 Mazda6 doesn’t come in, though. For drivers who want lots of interior room, the 20.2 cubic feet of cargo space in the hatchback can’t be matched by the Mazda6’s sedan body.

Fuel Advantage: 2018 Mazda3

Not surprisingly, the 2018 Mazda3 has a slight advantage in fuel economy because it’s a little smaller. It gets up to 38 highway miles per gallon, while the 2018 Mazda6 can reach 35 miles per gallon on the freeway.

While worth noting, this difference isn’t big enough to alone sway drivers toward the Mazda3.

Power Advantage: 2018 Mazda6

The little that it gives up in fuel economy, the 2018 Mazda6 more than makes up for in power.

All 2018 Mazda3s near Madison, WI come with a 2.0-liter SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY engine that generates 155 hp, which is larger than most competing models’ engines and more than enough to ensure driving excitement. In contrast, the 2018 Mazda6s in the area come with a standard 2.5-liter SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY that produces 187 horsepower. That is enough to provide a boost in performance.

For drivers who want even more, a 2.5-liter turbo SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY four-cylinder is available on the 2018 Mazda6. This turbo increases horsepower to 250 hp, transforming the car from a fun full-size sedan to a thrilling sports car that still has a professional demeanor.

Luxury Advantage: 2018 Mazda6

Both the 2018 Mazda6s and the 2018 Mazda3s near Madison, WI come with lots of feature options. When it comes to luxury, however, the 2018 Mazda6s have an advantage thanks to the Signature trim.

The 2018 Mazda6 Signature builds on the other trims’ many amenities by adding Sen wood, Napa leather, and overall interior refinement. The 2018 Mazda3’s top-end Grand Touring trim has lots going for it, but it doesn’t quite reach this level of refinement.

Price Advantage: 2018 Mazda3

Finally, the 2018 Mazda3 has a moderate price advantage over the 2018 Mazda6.

The Grand Touring version of the 2018 Mazda3 naturally costs less than the 2018 Mazda6’s luxury-laden Signature version. Even at the lower levels and with comparable feature sets, though, the 2018 Mazda3 is more affordable.

The 2018 Mazda3s for sale near Madison, WI starting at $18,095 for the Sport trim with a manual transmission. The 2018 Mazda6 Sport’s initial MSRP is $21,950 when it’s equipped with a stick shift. That’s a difference of over $3,500.
