Comparing the 2019 Mazda6 and the 2019 Nissan Altima

At the top edge of the Mazda6 lineup, the Signature model offers a luxury-grade interior with Nappa leather-trimmed sport seats and Sen Wood door and dashboard trim inserts. The Altima Platinum borrows elements from the Mazda6 with Leather-appointed seats and a Wood-tone trim but fails to match the sophisticated appeal of the Mazda’s carefully-selected genuine trim materials.

On the 2019 Mazda6, an available turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder SKYACTIV®-G engine tops the lineup with 250 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque. The Altima reaches max power with a 2.0-liter VC-Turbo 4-cylinder engine, which caps out at 248 horsepower and 267 lb.-ft. of torque.
