Mazda6 Performance Features
A SKYACTIV®-MT six-speed manual transmission is standard in the baseline Sport trim. Each of the other Mazda6 configurations receives a standard SKYACTIV®-Drive automatic transmission with six speeds and a built-in Sport Mode, and this option is also available on the baseline trim. All are standard with SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), and the Traction Control System (TCS).
