The Mazda3 or the Mazda6? Which Sedan Speaks to You?

October 12th, 2018 by

Sleek. Sophisticated. Luxurious. These are just some of the words we here at Julio Jones Mazda use to describe our incredible Mazda sedans, the Mazda3 and the Mazda6. Each one is perfect for either families or professionals, and choosing between them comes down to personality and preference.

If you’re shopping for a new sedan, and you’ve landed on the world-class craftsmanship and performance only Mazda can provide, let us help you decide which of these amazing sedans would work best for you.

Options and Power

Both stellar Mazda sedans come in your choice of trims, with tons of tech and safety features available for both. The Mazda3, as the smaller vehicle of the two, comes with slightly less power, with its base four-cylinder engine rated for 155 horsepower, compared to the Mazda6 base engine, which is rated for 187 horsepower. But, both are exciting and engaging to drive, and offer the legendary Mazda performance drivers around the globe appreciate about the carmaker.

Of course, if you’re looking to get your Mazda car in a style other than sedan, the Mazda3 is the only way to go. It’s available as the classy sedan, but also as a fun hatchback. The Mazda6 is only available in the chic sedan style, at least here in the United States. Some Mazda fans in other countries are lucky enough to get a hatchback / wagon Mazda6, but it’s not available here.


The biggest determining factor for most shoppers considering these two models is size. Both have four doors and seat five people, but the Mazda6 is the larger model. This means the Mazda6 offers a little more space, especially in the backseat, where your passengers will appreciate an extra 3 inches of legroom. Also, the cargo hold for the Mazda6 is larger, with 14.7 cubic feet of space available, compared to 12.4 cubic feet for the smaller Mazda3 sedan.

To truly decide between these two gorgeous sedans, we here at Julio Jones Mazda suggest stopping by and meeting them both in person. Take one of our available Mazda3 sedans out for a test drive, or experience one of our Mazda6 sedans firsthand, and see for yourself the incredible luxury and pampering that come with both models.
