Our Grand Touring tester, equipped with the slushbox as standard, started at $30,695, but that’s before the Grand Touring Premium Package bumped it up another $2,500 to $33,195. Other options, such as its marvelous Soul Red Metallic paint, carpet cargo mat, rear bumper guard, and doorsill trim plates, tacked on a further $625. Combined with a non-negotiable $890 destination fee, our tested example's window sticker showed $34,710 before taxes and other fees. Considering the level of equipment, that price makes this particular Mazda 6 the second most expensive midsize sedan you can buy, just behind the 2018 Toyota Camry
. Other competitors range between a couple hundred to a few thousand dollars less.
