Which Mazda sedan model is the right fit for you? Do you want the 2018 Mazda3 compact sedan or the 2018 Mazda6 midsize sedan? Well, before you make a decision between the two, you’ll need to know the differences. That way you can determine out which Mazda model has the most important features that you desire. So, that’s what we here at Kelly Mazda are going to do today. Here are the differences between the 2018 Mazda3 and the 2018 Mazda6!

The 2018 Mazda6 midsize sedan is larger, more powerful, spacious, and luxurious than the 2018 Mazda3, but that comes at a slightly higher cost and a hit to its fuel economy in comparison.
