Differences between the 2017 Mazda6 vs 2017 VW Passat
The Mazda6 and Passat may share the same efficiency rating at first, but the 2017 Mazda6 can actually take things one step further. Mazda6 models equipped with the available i-ELOOP regenerative engine braking system can see fuel efficiency ratings hovering around 40 MPG. This efficiency is still coming from the same sporty 184 horsepower engine in the Mazda6, which will get up to highway speed more than two seconds faster than the Passat.
The 2016 Mazda6 also comes with a comfortable, modern interior that is equipped with some of our favorite tech features. Premium comfort can be had when you choose to upgrade to the available high-grade Nappa leather seats in the 2017 Mazda6. Its standard Mazda Connect infotainment system is also both highly functional and easy to view. The active driving display on the Mazda6 is great for keeping your eyes on the road, by alerting you of your speed and even displaying info from road signs.
