TrueDelta Reviews the Gas Mileage of the 2015 Mazda Mazda6

2015 Mazda Mazda6 Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2014 Mazda figured out that performance without efficiency is no longer viable even for many driving enthusiasts. Hence the second focus of SKYACTIV: superior fuel economy. The V6 engine, with its segment-trailing EPA ratings of 18 mpg city, 27 highway, is gone. While a diesel has been promised as a future performance option, this year every Mazda6 will have a 184-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine under its hood. The 2013's less powerful (170hp) 2.5-liter four managed only 21 mpg city, 30 highway. The 2014 does far better: 26/38. Among conventionally gas-powered competitors, only the Nissan Altima is more fuel efficient, and not by a significant margin (27/38). The Honda Accord, with a CVT like the Nissan, does a little better in the city (27) but worse on the highway (36). Everyone else is at least an mpg or three behind. Later this year an option package on the Grand Touring will include a regenerative braking system that stores recouped energy in a capacitor. Other such systems rely on a conventional battery for energy storage, and these don't charge and discharge as quickly or efficiently. full 2014 Mazda Mazda6 review
2014 This year every Mazda6 has a 184-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine under its hood. The 2013's less powerful (170hp) 2.5-liter four managed only 21 mpg city, 30 highway. The 2014 does far better: 26/38 with the automatic transmission and 25/37 with the manual. When fitted with a 178-horsepower 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and manual transmission, the Ford Fusion earns identical EPA ratings. An Accord with a 189-horsepower 2.4-liter and manual transmission checks in lower, 24/34. In real world driving, the trip computer reported averages in the 30s--and as high as 38--in casual suburban driving and about 36 on a 70-mph highway. With such impressive numbers, I'm tempted to place fuel economy higher in the reasons to buy a Mazda6. full 2014 Mazda Mazda6 review

2016 4dr Sedan 143-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
The fuel economy on this car is pretty good in my opinion. Its a petrol automatic and if I do half a tank of fuel on Motorways with the speedo at 80 - 85 and the rest of the tank around town I will see 40 MPG. I don;t think one can complain too much about this. If I do all short journeys and no motorway mileage I can probably get around 35, which again is pretty good. full 2016 Mazda Mazda6 review
2014 4dr Sedan 184-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
I regularly get 33-34 mpg commuting 35-55 mph with some stop and go driving distances of 30+ miles each way. Constant speed driving on interstates through central PA, DC, VA, CT, RI, with seldom slow traffic backups, the car gets 36-37 mpg. Usually set at about 3-4 miles over posted or at traffic flow speeds. full 2014 Mazda Mazda6 review

26/38 rating is better than other sedans in its class. Averaging 32 with daily up and down mountain treks. Car maintains speed well and uses little gas keeping speed up. full 2014 Mazda Mazda6 review
2014 4dr Sedan 184-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Fuel economy is good but not as good as Mazda claims, in 9 months I'm averaging about 28 MPG combined in 60/40 city to highway driving and now in the winter months here in Minnesota, where you need to let the vehicle warm up for a minute or two in cold weather conditions and using winter gas. Still better than most cars in this class and the Skyactiv weight reducing and engine and transmission improvements really do seem to contribute to a fuel efficient car that is still fun to drive and nice to look at! full 2014 Mazda Mazda6 review

Fuel economy over 71k has been 32.1 MPG. Pretty darn good for a non-hybrid and driving 75-85 mph pretty consistently. full 2014 Mazda Mazda6 review
