2020 Mazda Mazda6 Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2020 Mazda6?

The Mazda6 is a five-seat mid-size sedan that’s powered by a choice of four-cylinder engines: a standard 187-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder or an available 227-hp, turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder. Both engines work with a six-speed automatic transmission. Competitors include the Kia Optima, Honda Accord and Toyota Camry.

What’s New on the 2020 Mazda6?

There are no significant changes this year.

What Features in the 2020 Mazda6 Are Most Important?

Standard active safety features include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability.

Other standard features include automatic LED headlights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, 17-inch alloy wheels, the Mazda Connect multimedia system with an 8-inch touchscreen, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone automatic air conditioning and push-button start.

Available features include heated front seats, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, a power moonroof, a Bose premium stereo, a head-up display and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.

Should I Buy the 2020 Mazda6?

In the mid-size sedan class, the Mazda6 stands out for its handling and available premium finishes. However, the base four-cylinder engine could use more low-end power, and efficiency-focused shoppers looking for a hybrid version will have to look at one of the Mazda6’s competitors.

Ride Is comparable to my BMW for less money.

by Carla NJ from Princeton, NJ on March 16, 2020

I traded my BMW for the Mazda 6 Reserve. Mazda ranked second in reliability behind Lexus. My BMW even after repeated repairs smelled like burnt oil. The Mazda handles much like the BMW. It’s very ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
