2021 Mazda6 Posts Fewer Changes Than Its Siblings

Pricing / Comments

But it still receives a few nice additions.

Mazda is currently in the process of introducing its 2021 model lineup. The carmaker recently announced significant updates to its CX-30 and Mazda3 models that received new turbocharged engines, while the best-selling CX-5, received tech upgrades in the cabin. The 2021 Mazda6 sedan is the latest model to be revealed, and though it packs less significant updates than its siblings, there are a few key highlights worth mentioning.

The 2021 Mazda6 Sport starts at $24,325, and now includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities as standard. Under the hood, a 2.5-liter Skyactiv engine still sends 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic, and Mazda's full suite of i-Activsense safety features come standard. All-wheel-drive still remains unavailable on the Mazda6.

Stepping up to the Touring trim level for $26,925 makes the Mazda6 more upscale with heated leatherette-trimmed seats, a six-way power driver's seat, advanced keyless entry, power moonroof, 19-inch gun metallic aluminum wheels, rear USB charging ports, and rear air conditioning vents.

The Grand Touring trim for $30,025 brings with it a turbocharged engine, upping the output to 250 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque (on premium) or 227 hp and 310 lb-ft on regular. New for 2021, this trim also receives a turbo badge on the trunk and wireless Apple CarPlay.

The Grand Touring Reserve and Signature trims cost $32,525 and $35,750 respectively, each pushing the Mazda6 to near-luxury levels of equipment and technology. Mazda also added a new Carbon Edition trim, which sits between the Grand Touring Reserve and Signature at $32,800. The Carbon Edition boasts similar features as the Grand Touring Reserve, but adds Polymetal Gray exterior paint, a gloss black rear lip spoiler, gloss black door mirrors, black 19-inch wheels, and a red leather interior.

The 2021 Mazda6 will arrive in dealerships later this month.
