2018 Hyundai Sonata vs. 2017 Mazda 6

New sedans in the Springfield Pennsylvanian market come in to showcase a touch of style, comfort and speed in a somewhat cluttered car manufacturing environment. What we see being released must be above normal expectation, and that is why cars like the 2018 Hyundai Sonata excel in comparison with competitors like the 2017 Mazda 6. Here are specifications why we see the Hyundai as a better contender to the Mazda.

Design & Style

The Italian-like body works that Mazda has injected into its new 6 coupled with its continuous efforts in bolstering its interior over time has paid off. It receives the attention it deserves for a mid-sized sedan. However, it has a coupe-like roof line whose obvious disadvantage is in carrying those taller passengers at the rear sits.

We would suggest the 2018 Sonata for space and style to the Mazda 6. Besides being the supermodel among mid-sized sedans, its clear, long-roofline and hatchback profile makes you almost confuse it for a luxury sedan the likes of Audi and Mercedes-Benz. Inside, you will be entertained to an 8-inch touchscreen and an array of switches and knobs. How about that for a mid-sized sedan?

Technology & Safety

If you opt for the 6, you’ll get the usual package that includes the standard set of airbags, stability control and rearview mirrors. The Mazda also packs a set of blind-spot monitors, cross traffic alerts emergency braking and forward collision warnings, but only featuring in the Touring version.

As concerns safety, you would rather go for a 2017 Sonata, whose safety credentials cannot be matched by any of its mid-sized competitors. Independent and Federal safety testers all applaud how it crumples when crashed, giving it one of the highest scores for safety. You will also get the same bouquet of equipment as those mentioned for the Mazda’s Touring, but in more trims of the Sonata like the SEL and the Limited versions. In a nutshell, you are safer with the Sonata.


Mazda’s 6 has a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine under its hood, gashing out 184 horsepower and 185 pound-torque channeled to its front wheels via 6-speed automatic or manual for the Sport and Touring models. It generally offers a smooth and stable ride for straight roads and curvy surfaces thanks to the balanced chassis Mazda invested in it.

Make sure not to drive the 6 on high altitudes or where you’re curves are too many, otherwise you will be in for a bit of mess. For such, you will need to own a 2018 Sonata. Its 2.4-liter inline-4 is also rated at 184-hp, and does well in transmission, since it seems never to hunt to get the right gear. Wading through curvier roads is thus much better inside a Sonata.

The Bottom Line

These two cars all look handsome, sporty and comfy. However, Mazda 6’s devil is in its details, and that is why the market leans more towards the Hyundai Sonata. With a price range that’s almost the same, you will want an all-rounded car that offer more safety features, and performs well when the need arises. The 2018 Sonata is simply a better choice.
