Finding the ideal car for yourself or family can be challenging, but both the small 2018 Mazda3 and midsize 2017 Mazda6 will fit the bill, depending on what exactly you’re after. Whether you only plan on driving through Naperville, or on a long road trip, both the 2018 Mazda3 and 2017 Mazda6 offer a sleek design with superior performance, but there are key differences, primarily concerning size and efficiency. Both vehicles are performance-driven, to give you the best driving experience possible.

Sporty Design

Whether looking to upgrade or downsize, both the 2018 Mazda3 and the 2017 Mazda6 offer a sportier design than most midsize sedans on the road. Customize your look a bit more with eight different color options to suit your personality and driving style, as well as, customizable interior options. While driving through Aurora, play your favorite tunes while behind the wheel with six speakers and alloy wheels. You are sure to turn heads with the 2018 Mazda3 and 2017 Mazda6.

You will notice some differences, though. The Mazda3, for instance, offers 12.4 cubic feet of dedicated trunk space as a sedan or up to 47.1 cubic feet of cargo space as a hatchback; while the Mazda6, which is only available as a sedan, offers 14.8 cubic feet of trunk space. There’s also a difference in efficiency: the smaller Mazda3 can achieve up to 37 mpg highway, while the midsize Mazda6 tops out at 35 mpg highway.
