The Mazda6 Sedan vs. The Chevy Malibu

Car shoppers around Gary, IN have a range of sporty, stylish sedans to choose from, but so many options can make it harder instead of easier to find the right one, but we hope to help you such an important decision. Below, you'll find a comparison of the Mazda6, which is at our dealership in Merrillville, with the Chevy Malibu, so check out some of the ways the Mazda6 differs from what at first may seem like a similar sedan offer.

Design and Handling

Attention to detail is one way that Mazda vehicles set themselves apart from others, and the Mazda6 is no different. It's the shorter of the two models in this comparison, which means that it has a tighter turning radius and handles better in general, but it still manages to deliver more legroom to each row than the Chevy Malibu, and that spaciousness is just part of the premium feel of its cabin.

Technology and Safety

Valparaiso techies that crave cutting-edge automotive features will find that the Mazda6 better delivers them by coming standard with tech like blind spot monitoring, an 8-inch touchscreen display, and all-LED exterior lighting, none of which are available on the lower trims of the Chevy Malibu. Plus, if you covet a truly tailored driving experience, higher trims of the Mazda6 come with ventilated seats for the front and heated seats for both rows while the Chevy Malibu only offers heated front seats.

Engines and Performance

Both models claim to be sporty sedan options, but, in conjunction with the improved handling that we mentioned above, the Mazda6 follows through on that with more powerful engines. The engine it comes standard with has more horsepower and torque than the standard engine of the Chevy Malibu while its turbocharged engine option has an advantage of 60 pound-feet of torque over the Malibu's most powerful engine, so drivers can accelerate more rapidly around Hammond, IL.

We hope this helps with your search for a new sedan, and if you have any other questions about the Mazda6, just give us a call today!
