When the 2018 Mazda 6 got released with an option to elevate the performance with a turbocharger, people started wanting it more above other sedans that claimed to have similar capabilities. Hence, the 2018 Mazda 6 Turbo came out to be highly popular among the mid-size family sedans, that eases out the stress of diving through its a fluidity of controls while the handling it was able to deliver was rarein its own category.
Powering the Performance
When we saw the advertisement reading Las Vegas Mazda 6 for sale, we managed to reach the dealership to take a closer look at the vehicle and if possible try out a test derive. There we were told that the 2.5-liter inline-four engine is continued for the 2018 version but with an added horse power of 3 and 1 lb-ft of torque to the earlier count. The cylinder deactivation and the elimination of the six-speed manual transmission from the Touring trim are the changes in the power train we get to see for the 2018-year model. The manual transmission too is offered on the 2018 Mazda 6 but only for the base model. But if you want that enhanced performance from the turbocharged engine, you have to choose from the two top trim models, the Signature and the Grand Touring Reserve. Both are paired with a six-speed automatic. Mazda has also improved the chassis in the 2018 model in addition to the revised suspension setup.
The 2018 Mazda 6 will prove its performance power when you press the accelerator. It will invariably pick up the speed of 60-mph from a dead stop in merely 6 seconds which is the quickest in in its class and you don’t feel a single jerk when it does so. Once you are much ahead on the way the Mazda engine will prove itself to bemuch more refined than others, behaving eagerly to cross every hurdle with dignity.
In tune with other controls and the power of acceleration, the brake pedal of the 2018 Mazda 6 Turbo functions consistently well. The feeling on the pedal is firm, but not tight.It will eventually engage the brakes with promptness without grabbing your feet or showing any other antics that can irritate the driver.
Overall Ride Quality
Our test drive at the Las Vegas Mazda dealership did push us ahead to think of buying one. As we drove through the different patterns of traffic, the chassis responded sharply each time we needed. The response of the steering-wheel to the inputs had no unpleasant surprises. We have only words of appreciation for the body control we enjoyed.With little roll during turns, Mazda’s G-Vectoring Control, performed exceptionally well in managing the engine torque enhancing the response time of the front tires at the events of every turn-in.
To round up what we experienced with the 2018 Mazda 6 Turbo, all we can say is that it can successfully provide the driving thrills without sacrificing the refinement of the ride quality.
