Which Sedan Offers the Best Value? 

The comparison table shows that the 2021 Mazda6 offers more for your investment than the 2021 Toyota Camry. But there’s plenty that the table doesn’t show. Going by the looks alone the Mazda6 is quite clearly in a different league than the Camry sedan. There’s a certain skill to giving a car a premium appearance, and Mazda’s designers seem to have that market cornered with elegant shapes and refined materials. That’s not to mention the Mazda6 has sportier driving dynamics thanks to the brand’s standard torque-vectoring technology.

Both sedans have standard automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-keep assist, and adaptive cruise control—but only the Mazda6 also has automatic high-beam headlights, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert on every model. All Mazda6 models also include push-button start, remote keyless entry, dual-zone climate control, an 8-inch touchscreen, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and LED headlights. This range of standard features is rare among midsize sedans, especially considering the Mazda6 has a lower starting price than the Camry.
