2018 Mazda6 Sport Engine vs Grand Touring Turbocharged Engine

The 2018 Mazda 6 full-size sedan comes with 5 available trim level options. Within these 5 trim levels, there are 2 engine options.

Meanwhile, the 2nd engine option is first introduced with the 2018 Mazda6 Grand Touring trim level and remains in the Grand Touring Reserve and Signature trim levels.

Therefore, today we’re going to take a look at both of these engine options for the 2018 Mazda6. That way, you’ll know which trim levels you should consider when shopping for your very own 2018 Mazda6 sedan!
