Pricing / 22 Comments

Facelifted car set to go on sale next month.

When the facelifted 2018 Mazda6 arrives in dealerships next month it will do so with an MSRP of $21,950, just $5 more expensive than the outgoing model. Standard equipment on the Sport base model includes dual-zone climate control, keyless entry, an infotainment system with touchscreen, Bluetooth, a backup camera, cruise control, and a six-speaker audio system. Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Smart City Brake Support, LED headlights, taillights, and 17-inch alloy wheels will be available as optional content.

The car can also be spec'd with Mazda's i-Activ Sense package. On six-speed automatic transmission models, the package adds adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, lane-departure warning, dusk-sensing headlights, and automatic windshield wipers for a mere $625. An automatic transmission will set you back a further $1,050. Jumping further up the pricing scale, the Mazda6 Touring trim starts at $25,700 and benefits from all of the features of the four-door Sport. Additionally, it gains 19-inch alloy wheels, leatherette seating surfaces, a six-way adjustable power driver's seat, heated front seats, power moonroof, and a six-speed automatic gearbox as included kit.
