2018 Mazda6 redesigned

Mazda’s most recent redesign went to its Mazda6 back in November, upgrading the sedan from a good-looking car to something that differentiates itself from the rest of the lineup as a flagship. At the time, of course, Mazda did not have pricing information.

Now it does, though.

The 2018 Mazda6 will be rolling into dealerships in April starting at an MSRP of $21,950. This is a price increase from the 2017.5 model of less than the cost of your lunch: just $5. This is for the Sport trim level with a manual transmission.

Here’s the price breakdown, provided by Mazda.

Mazda also listed three premium paint colors: Snowflake White Pearl Mica for $200, Machine Gray Metallic, and of course the brand trademark Soul Red Crystal for $595.

The primary upgrade that the Mazda6 got for the 2018 model year, beyond the exterior redesign, was the addition of two new trim levels above the existing Grand Touring model: Grand Touring Reserve and Signature. These two trims took the usual refinement deployed in the Grand Touring and added several new and advanced features—for example, the Grand Touring Reserve is the entry trim for the brand’s first ventilated seats ever, and the Signature comes with Japanese Sen wood interior accents.

The 2018 Mazda6 is the only model in the Zoom-Zoom lineup aside from the CX-9 (the brand’s flagship for its crossovers) to offer the most luxurious Signature trim. That isn’t all that it shares with the CX-9, though; it also comes with a newly available SKYACTIV-G 2.5-liter turbocharged engine, already in use in the CX-9.
