Design & Style

It’s an undeniable fact that both of these vehicles are very attractive.

The Hyundai, on the other hand, has clean, well-thought-out design cues on the body which results in a car that looks stylishly elegant. When the two are compared, the 2017 Hyundai Sonata is definitely the better looking of the two.

The interior of the Mazda 6 is worlds apart from that of the 2017 Hyundai Sonata.

As a result, you will feel 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.

Some of the notable safety features include
