2018 Mazda6: Punchy Torque Is No Faster Than Accord, Camry!

By  | 

A car’s 0-60mph acceleration performance is not the best measuring stick to find out how good a vehicle is. although it remains to be one of the most thought-about element for the average consumers when deciding on an upcoming vehicle purchase.

If you belong in this group, you may want to cross the 2018 Mazda Mazda6 off your list because the huge power bump which the vehicle has received does not translate well on 0-60mph times.

The Mazda6 that relies on the SkyActiv 2.5L engine has an official 0-60mph figure of 6.4 seconds and this is narrowly behind the rivals Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. This is a tad disappointing because the Mazda6 is packed with more attractive numbers.

On the plus side of things, the Mazda6 has got a better-rated daily driving performance as it offers a superb balance in power and fuel economy. If that is not great enough, the economical focus of SkyActiv does not make the Mazda6 less fun than its rivals.
