To stand as a better alternative to the crossover SUV models, which are known for their well rounded usefulness, a compact car like Mazda 6 had to take some decisive steps. However, as a Mazda product, that wasn’t that difficult to achieve though. So, if you are interested to try out any of the 2020 Mazda 6 models, you can start from test driving it from a place like the Tempe Mazda dealership where you can judge how well rounded it is, from the aspect of making a useful family car.
Leaving out its head-turning style and performance aside, in which it will no doubt compete the crossovers well, we must go straight to the utility features, to know it actual value. For this we took the help of the staff members of ….. , who eagerly explained all the details of features from each of the sections that the 2020 Mazda 6 is comprised of.
Before we go into the details of the features and operational aspects, we need to take a quick look at the trim levels that Mazda maintained for its 6 series this year. In fact, it is the same list of trim names we’ve seen last year, like the Sport, Touring, Grand Touring, and Grand Touring Reserve, that stack up more layers of creature comfort and safety standards, as you keep adding to the base price and climb higher the trim ladder.
Interior Comfort and Utility
The 2020 Mazda 6 as a midsize family sedan makes more than enough space for five people including the one behind the wheels. The seats are wide and well cushioned, providing enough support to withstand a day long journey. The materials used to wrap the interior cabin too have a positive contribution in making the occupants feel at home.
To load the stuff and luggage for each occupant, Mazda spares a 14.7 cubic feet of space in the trunk that is separated from the seating place, following the sedan rules. Mazda makes loading and unloading of cargo stuff lot more easier because of the wide trunk opening. The figure is equal to many sub compact crossovers, while separating it from the seating space makes the cabin much more tidy than what we experience in crossovers.

To make the ride smooth flowing, an 8.0-inch touchscreen display works for the standard Mazda Connect infotainment system that can also be operated with the help of a dial controller, though Apple Car Play and Android Auto compatibility can be availed from the Touring and above trims. To help all the passengers stay connected, Mazda installs two USB inputs apart from Bluetooth connectivity.
The cabin stays weatherproof because of the dual-zone climate control, even when the outside atmosphere is not congenial.
Ride and Drive
Our experience with the 2020 Mazda 6 at the Mazda dealer Tempe made us realize that it drives and rides equally well.Choose any trim, but you’ll get the same 2.5-liter inline-4 engine that can deliver 187 horsepower when paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The advanced sound cancellation system keeps the cabin shut off from every possible external noises, while its high end driving dynamics keep the road imperfections a secret.
