2018 Mazda6 Specs and Review

In the 2018 model, Mazda6 has refreshed its looks and given a facelift to the interior into the car. In fact, this mid-size sedan has seen a complete redesigning for the third time in under five model years. They have revamped the powertrain, and they have changed the body to make it able to go head to head with stiff competition like the Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord.

Most Notable Improvements

One of the most important changes made to the new 2018 Mazda6 is the longer hood. For its engine, the cylinder deactivation and a 2.5-liter inline-four comes standard. However, you can also choose to opt in for the 2018 Mazda6 with the 2.5-liter inline-four cylinder engine and the addition of a turbocharged engine. With the turbocharged engine, you’ll have 250 horsepower when you fill your tank with premium or super-premium gasoline. You can swap it out for regular fuel if need be — it’ll just result in 227 horsepower instead. You can also choose either the naturally aspirated engine with either a six-speed automatic or a six-speed manual transmission. However, you won’t be able to buy the turbocharged engine offering unless you pick the six-speed automatic.

The Exterior of the 2018 Mazda6

When we look at the exterior of the vehicle, you have a fairly attractive choice with a five-point grille and slim headlights. The most eye-catching characteristic of this vehicle is the chrome grille surround. This car’s headlights merge with the grille closer to the bottom.

A Look at the Inside of the Car

The inside of this car has a spectacular interior with plenty of interesting features. For example, the front seating has undergone a complete redesign, and you have a new dashboard design since the last model. The screen will be one inch bigger than in the previous models. Other niceties include a 7.0-inch digital display found in the gauge cluster, as well as the option of the head-up display, which will project necessary information onto your windshield. For those hot summer days, you can relax with the ventilated front seating, and you can also choose to go with an adaptive cruise control system. Possibilities abound!

Gas Mileage and Power of This Vehicle

The 2018 Mazda6 gets 27 miles per gallon combined. It achieves around 24 miles per gallon with city driving and 33 miles per gallon on the highway. That’s not the highest fuel economy when compared to some of the other vehicles in its class, but it’s still a solid amount. Additionally, the Mazda6 can accelerate from zero to 60 in 7.9 seconds.

Features of the Mazda6

One of the most remarkable aspects of the 2018 Mazda6 is the fact that it distinguishes itself from other vehicles with its roaring engine. The newest model lives up to the standards of the sports sedan. This four-door vehicle commands a lot more attention on the road than some of the other vehicles in its class. Along with its breathtaking performance and “wow” factor, you can feel safe in the knowledge that the 2018 Mazda6 is worth the purchase. No matter which engine you might prefer, both of them will deliver power straight to the front of your wheels. As a Japanese automaker, the Mazda company has made remarkable improvements to the chassis and the suspension to coordinate with the engine. Meanwhile, the vehicle uses beefed-up sheet metal as a way of deadening the vibration and noise while on the road. In the leather seating, you will see classy French stitching. The climate control in the vehicle sits low enough, but at the same time, you can read it with a glance.

At the lower-grade trim levels, you have a leatherette upholstery, and every one of the Mazda6 vehicles has new seat padding to improve the all-day comfort. The 2018 Mazda6 has adaptive cruise control and a surround-view camera system for maximum safety. You’ll also find that automatic emergency braking comes standard with this vehicle. Additionally, a statement made by Mazda’s North American CEO promises the inclusion of Apple CarPlay as well as connectivity for Android phones with this 2018 model.

Given the sporty and lithe feel of the Mazda6 from last year, we have some fairly high expectations for the vehicle this year. The 2018 Mazda6 will have more features than ever before, and the new engine pairs well with the revised styling. The look of this vehicle is fairly clean and has an upscale feel to it. This car has a shield-shaped grille that has been described to look somewhat contemporary in its texture. Everything about this vehicle has been designed as a way of improving all-day comfort. Road trip, anyone?

History Facts - The Berlin Wall

  1. The Berlin Wall was built by the East German government to allegedly protect its people from the fascist elements of West Germany. The West Berlin city government called it the Wall of Shame because it restricted freedom of movement.
  2. From 1949 to 1961, when the wall was a threat but had not been constructed yet, over two million East Germans fled to the West. In 1961, Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev agreed to help East Germany build the wall.
  3. 138 of the people who attempted to cross the Berlin Wall, were shot dead, committed suicide, or suffered tragic accidents. Ida Sikman who died on August 22, 1961, was the wall's first victim.
  4. The first person to escape the Wall was Conrad Schumann, an East German border guard corporal. He jumped over the three-foot-high roll of barbed wire. The wall's last victim was an East German who tried to fly over the wall with a hot air balloon but crashed into power lines.
  5. East German politburo member Gunter Schabowski, announced on November 9, 1989, that the restrictions on travel visas are lifted. The announcement, however, was one day too soon, resulting in thousands of East Berliners at the Wall. The border officers ultimately opened the crossing.
  6. The demolition of the Berlin Wall started in the summer of 1990. Most of the sections were recycled for other construction projects, but a few were auctioned off. Some are scattered in locations like the Vatican gardens, or the men's room at a Las Vegas casino.
