2017 Hyundai Azera vs. 2017 Mazda 6

In the world of sedans, the 2017 Hyundai Azera and the 2017 Mazda 6 have cut a niche as some of the most desirable in the market. If you are to choose between the two, the obvious choice would be the 2017 Hyundai Azera particularly if you look at the differences between the two. The reasons for this are numerous, and some of these are discussed below.

Design & Style

It’s an undeniable fact that both of these vehicles are very attractive. The Mazda 6 has a butch appearance which appeals to many car enthusiasts. The Hyundai, on the other hand, has clean, well-thought-out design cues which results in a car that looks stylishly and elegant. On comparison, the Hyundai is definitely way more visually appealing compared to the Mazda.

The interior of the Mazda 6 is worlds apart from that of the 2017 Hyundai Azera. In addition to having less space, build quality and placement of controls has been compromised in the Mazda, resulting in a less than perfect cabin experience. As a result, you will feel much more comfortable in the Hyundai compared to the Mazda 6. The fact that the Hyundai also features amenities such as an excellent audio system with 9 speakers, as well as heated and power driver and passenger seats further proves this point.

Technology & Safety

The 2017 Mazda 6 has tons of tech features as you would expect from a car manufactured in this era, but it does not match what the 2017 Hyundai Azera has to offer. Some of the tech features in the Mazda include a 300 watt 6 speaker audio system, Bluetooth capability and cruise control. For safety, standard features include ABS and traction control.

The 2017 Hyundai Azera, on the other hand, offers the same in addition to a more impressive array of tech features on offer. These include Apple CarPlay support, Android connectivity, a hands-free smart trunk function as well as smart cruise control.


The Mazda 6 base model ships with a 4-cylinder 2.5 litre engine gasoline engine producing 184 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque at 5,700 rpm. This is barely enough considering that the vehicle weighs 3,500 pounds when empty. You will definitely feel the lack of power particularly if you drive it under strenuous conditions.

The base 2017 Hyundai Azera ships with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine which produces 185 horsepower, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The gear changes are smooth, and the car is responsive despite the fact that it produces a modest amount of power. Since the Hyundai is lighter, it can make do with this power with ease.

The Bottom Line

Both of these vehicles have their strong points, but the 2017 Hyundai Azera is clearly miles ahead of the Mazda. It has a lot to offer in a neat package, and would be an ideal choice for any type of driver today.
