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).
Mazda6 Fuel Economy
The Mazda6 offers respectable fuel economy across all five of its available trim levels, but your model’s efficiency will vary depending on which engine and transmission you select:

- With the baseline 2.5-Liter SKYACTIV®-G engine and the SKYACTIV®-Drive automatic transmission, the Mazda6 gets 26 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway.
