When car customers choose one vehicle over another, often times it’s because one of them had characteristics with which the other couldn’t compete. In some cases, it’s fuel economy, cargo space, towing ability, etc. In this one, however, it’s all about pricing, strength, features, and interior space.

As we outlined in our 2018 Mazda6 vs 2018 Nissan Altima comparative chart above, the Mazda6 overwhelms the Altima in all of these aspects. Under the hood of the 2018 Mazda3, for example, one will find an eager engine that’s raring to go wherever its owner, or the open road, may lead it.

Main Differences – Mazda6 vs Nissan Altima

When one ventures under the hood of the 2018 Nissan Altima, they are met by 179 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque. While this may be fine for some consumers, why settle for ‘good’ when you can have ‘great,’ especially when it costs less! Over $1,300 more affordable on the starting MSRP, the base model of the 2018 Mazda6 can produce up to 187 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque. In other words, it gives you more power for less money.

As if the deal wasn’t already amazing, the 2018 Mazda6 also offers high-tech features, such as ventilated front seats, which are not available in the 2018 Nissan Altima. While that may be great for front passengers, what about the people in the back seats? As always, Mazda is one step ahead. With more room in its rear row, particularly in terms of legroom, the Mazda6 can accommodate a wider range of passengers with its spacious interior.

With unrivaled features, a stronger engine, more comfort for all its passengers, and a lower starting MSRP, the Mazda6 has earned a definitive win in our 2018 Mazda6 vs 2018 Nissan Altima comparison. Suffice it to say, in our estimation, the Mazda6 is ultimately more well-rounded than the Altima.
