Finding the right vehicle for you can be difficult. But finding an efficient sedan with a sleek design can be easy in the Irvine, CA area. Both the 2021 Mazda6 and the 2021 Mazda3 Sedan offer award-winning options for performance, safety, and style.
The lone problem between the Mazda sedan lineup comes in deciding which one to purchase or lease. Known for its premium performance, the midsized 2021 Mazda6 makes for a solid option.

Aside from pricing, both the 2021 Mazda5 and the 2021 mazda3 Sedan have several key differences and similarities. Marketed as the performance model in the sedan lineup, the 2021 Mazda6 offers a strong base SKYACTIV®-G 2.5-liter engine. The powertrain provides over 30 more horsepower than the 2021 Mazda3 Sedan and its new 2.0-liter engine. However, one key similarity is that both options have access to the SKYACTIV®-G 2.5-liter Turbo engine, which produces up to 250 horsepower and 320 ft-lbs of torque. But if you’re looking for all-wheel drive capabilities, only the 2021 Mazda3 Sedan offers i-ACTIV® AWD at turbo-level trims.
