Mazda6 Speed Specs


The Mazda6 is lots of fun to drive, with it handling well on winding roads and being very fast. You may be wondering just how fast it can go on the tracks around Harrisburg, Mechanicsburg, and Carlisle.

We’ll tell you that in this guide to the Mazda6 speed specs. After reading through the information below, you can contact us at Faulkner Mazda to take this vehicle on a test drive.

How Fast Can the Mazda6 Go?

The Mazda6 speed specs vary based on the engine/transmission combination. For instance, when the vehicle is equipped with the standard 2.5L SKYACTIV®-G 4-cylinder engine and a SKYACTIV®-MT 6-speed overdrive, it has a top speed of 137 MPH. When that same engine is mated to a SKYACTIV®-Drive 6-speed automatic transmission, the vehicle has a top speed of 132 MPH.

Maybe you want to kick things up a notch and take the Mazda6 onto a race track. If so, then you’ll love the available SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T Dynamic Pressure Turbo 4-cylinder engine. When it’s paired with the automatic transmission, it’ll help the vehicle reach a top speed of 149 MPH.

No matter what, you’ll have a fast sedan that handles well on any road and is a joy to drive.

Mazda6 Performance Specs

You’ll also have a vehicle that’s just as powerful as it is efficient. The standard engine delivers 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque, while the available one produces 250 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque.

The Mazda6 utilizes Cylinder Deactivation, which shuts down two of the engine’s four cylinders in certain driving conditions. As a result, you get an ideal balance between performance and efficiency. In fact, the car can achieve an EPA-estimated 26 city/35 highway MPG.*

With this kind of power and efficiency, you’ll want to spend as much time as possible on the road. This is especially true since the vehicle feels planted around turns, gives you great steering feel, and has strong brakes.


A big reason for this midsize car’s impressive performance has to do with its SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY. Every part of the Mazda6 was designed to maximize both efficiency and driving dynamics, from the body construction to the transmission. As a result, you have car with impressive fuel economy ratings without sacrificing performance.

One feature found in this driving technology is SKYACTIV®-VEHICLE DYNAMICS with G-Vectoring Control. Whenever you turn a corner, the system will adjust power delivery and shift vehicle weight. It works subtly from start to finish, giving you a smoother and more exhilarating drive.

That’s because instead of concentrating on the vehicle’s mechanics, the focus has been shifted to the person behind the wheel. The result is a car that feels like an extension of your body.
