Comparing the Performance and Feature Highlights of the Mazda6 and Hyundai Sonata Midsize Sedans
As the comparison table reveals, the rivaling sedan lines end in a draw in the battle of the base engines with their standard 2.5-liter 4-cylinder powerhouses. Both lineups switch the base engine out for a turbocharged variant on the higher trims. If a true surge of power is what you’re chasing, the turbocharged Mazda6 will please with 250 horsepower on premium fuel and 300 lb-ft of torque. By comparison, the Hyundai Sonata’s turbocharged engine makes 180 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque.
As far as active safety goes, all Mazda6 and Hyundai Sonata models come standard with adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, high-beam assist and lane-keeping assist. But only the Mazda6 can offer standard blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert as well.
At the peak of the lineup, the 2020 Mazda6 Signature comes better suited to rival luxury brands with Nappa leather upholstery, genuine Sen wood accents, a 360˚ -view monitor and traffic sign recognition.
