The Mazda6, Toyota Camry, and Nissan Altima are among the three most popular sedans in North America. Naturally, consumers are going to be looking at reviews and side-by-side comparisons. So, how exactly does the 2019 Mazda6 hold up against two of its competitors?

Let’s compare the Mazda6 with the Toyota Camry. Both are very road-worthy mid-size sedans. However, there are a few notable points that set the two apart. Automatic climate control and rain-sensing wipers are two features that come standard with the 2019 Mazda6, whereas they’re optional add-ons for the Toyota Camry. While not much different, the Mazda6 has more cargo volume at 14.7-cubic feet, vs 14.1-cubic feet for the Toyota Camry.

Next, let’s see how the Mazda6 holds up against the Nissan Altima. In the safety department, the Mazda6 utilizes Whiplash Reducing Headrests. This protects the driver’s and front passenger’s head and neck from whiplash in a rear collision. The Nissan Altima lacks this safety technology. Both sedans have basic safety technology, such as four-wheel anti-lock brakes, front side-impact airbags, and adjustable front shoulder seatbelts.

What about reliability? Obviously, this has a lot to do with how well the owner takes care of his vehicle, regardless of model. However, Consumer Reports did score the Mazda6 25 points higher than the Nissan Altima in reliability. Consumer Reports also ranked the Mazda brand higher overall. It came in sixth place, vs the fourteenth place for Nissan.
