2019 Mazda MAZDA6 vs. Its Competition

2019 Mazda MAZDA6
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

Mid-size sedan buyers have it made in the shade.

Most competitors are good and relatively cheap, compared to crossovers.

The Honda Accord was our pick for Best Car To Buy 2018 and it leads the class.

The Toyota Camry isn’t far behind and its hybrid model is very fuel-efficient.

The Nissan Altima is new for 2019 and features a good exterior and available raucous turbo-4.

The Subaru Legacy is due for an update soon, but its all-wheel-drive system will be attractive to snowy-state buyers.

The Chevy Malibu is on its way out and discounts should be plentiful.
