A few weeks after preliminary pricing information broke online, Mazda has revealed the full price list for its new 2014 6 sedan. The car is on sale in the U.S. now and starts at $21,675, after a $795 destination charge. The automaker also revealed that the 2014 Mazda 6 will return up to 38 mpg on the highway.
For now, all versions of the 2014 Mazda 6 use a 2.5-liter inline-four SkyActiv gasoline engine with 184 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque; a four-cylinder turbodiesel will arrive in the second half of this year. Equipping the gas engine with a six-speed manual transmission returns an EPA estimate of 25/37 mpg city/highway, while opting for a six-speed automatic bumps those numbers to 26/38 mpg.
The base model is the Mazda 6 i Sport, which starts at $21,675 with a manual transmission. Standard equipment includes push-button start, air conditioning, 17-inch alloy wheels, USB and auxiliary audio inputs, cruise control, and six airbags. Adding an automatic transmission nudges the price to $23,290 because it also adds a backup camera and a 5.8-inch touchscreen interface with Bluetooth connectivity, Pandora Internet radio, and a voice text-messaging system.
The middle version is the Mazda 6 i Touring, which builds on the previous trim level with 19-inch wheels, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic climate control, leatherette sports seats, and a power driver's seat. It requires at least $25,290. Adding the $2200 Touring Technology package nets buyers a Bose 11-speaker sound system, automatic headlights, passive entry, rain-sensing wipers, heated and dimming outside mirrors, and Mazda's new Smart City Brake Support. At speeds below 19 mph, SCBS can apply the brakes to prevent a collision.
The Mazda 6 i Grand Touring tops the price list at $30,290, and adds on to the i Touring with the Touring Technology pack including unique 19-inch wheels, a sunroof, a trunklid spoiler, HID headlights, heated leather seats, steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, and satellite radio. There are two option packages for the Grand Touring: the $900 -- and imaginatively named -- MRCC/FOW pack adds Mazda Radar Cruise Control and Forward Obstruction Warning. Available in the second half of this year is the Advanced package that bundles lane-departure warning, an automatic high-beam function, and Mazda's fuel-saving i-ELOOP regenerative braking system; pricing will be announced closer to its on-sale date.
The price range and fuel-economy estimates put the 2014 Mazda 6 in good company among similar midsize sedans. Prices for the 2013 Honda Accord sedan range from $22,470 (including a $790 destination charge) to $34,220, and four-cylinder models return up to 27/36 mpg. The 2013 Nissan Altima ranges from $22,550 (after a $790 destination charge) to $31,350; four-cylinder models match the Mazda at 38 mpg highway.The 2013 Ford Fusion is priced from $22,495 (including a $795 destination charge) to $30,995. Fords with the 1.6-liter EcoBoost turbo-four engine are rated for up to 25/37 mpg.
