Comparing the Ford Fusion vs. Mazda6 in Webster

 

 

When purchasing a sports car you want speed, ultimate style and top interior features. The 2017 Madzda6 not only turns heads with unmatched style but also as it skyrockets by competitors like the Ford Fusion. Competition tries to one-up the Mazda6 in Webster but they don’t compare. See how the Mazda6 claims first place in this comparison and stop by Mazda of Clear Lake to see all these features up close.

Mazda6 vs. Ford Fusion: Speed and Transmission 

If you’re after speed, the 2017 Mazda6 delivers. In only 7.5 seconds, the Mazda6 accelerates from 0 to 60 MPH while the Ford Fusion comes in at a much slower 9.1 seconds. The 2.5 DOHC 4 cylinder Mazda6 produces more horsepower and pounds per feet torque than the Fusion’s standard 2.5 DOHC 4 cylinder. The Mazda6 also produces more horsepower than the Fusion’s optional 1.5 turbo 4 cylinder. This Fusion requires premium gas that costs more than the Mazda6’s regular unleaded.

Choose between an automatic or manual transmission that provides better acceleration, control and fuel economy in the Mazda6. The 2017 Ford Fusion does not offer a manual transmission.

Mazda6 vs. Ford Fusion Handling:

For better traction, the Mazda6 has larger tires (225/55R17) than the Fusion (215/60R16). Experience a better ride, handling and brake cooling in the Mazda6 Sport with standard 17-inch wheels. Smaller 16-inch wheels are standard on the Fusion S.

The Mazda6 may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weights about 250 to 500 pounds less than the Ford Fusion. Optional regenerative brakes improve the Mazda6 Grand Touring’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. The Fusion does not offer a regenerative braking system.

Mazda6 vs. Ford Fusion: Gas Mileage

As tested by the EPA, the Mazda6 auto gets better gas mileage than the Ford Fusion with standard engine FWD. Get up to 27 city and 35 highway MPG in the Mazda6 compared to the 21 city and 32 highway of the Fusion. *

In its Green Vehicle Guide, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rates the Mazda6 higher (8 to 9 out of 10) than the Ford Fusion (6 to 9). This means the Mazda6 produces up to 8.8 pounds less smog-producing pollutants than the Fusion every 15,000 miles.

Chevy Camaro vs. Mazda MX-5 Miata in Webster

 

While the Camaro may be a more recognizable name in the sports car world, there is no doubt that Mazda has made a name for itself with the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata in Webster. This new model features a hard top and a handful of other new features that allow it to stand-out from its competition.

 

If you hesitated to purchase a Mazda Miata due to the soft roof, there’s no longer any reason for concern. The 2017 Mazda MX-5, now available at Mazda of Clear Lake, has a retractable hard top roof. The addition of the power-retractable roof also allows for the inclusion of a color display, which is a steep upgrade from the black and white version available in the soft top models.

 

For anyone who’s worried that the added weight of the roof might slow the Mazda down, the car maker made sure to compensate for the increased heft by retuning the steering and using slightly stiffer springs. So, if you like the more sophisticated look of the hard top, but still want to go fast, the Miata is a great option. The Mazda MX-5 Miata also shines in another unlikely area for a sports car – fuel efficiency. It averages 34 mpg on the highway and 27 mpg in the city, far outshining the Chevy Camaro. *

 

Stop by Mazda of Clear Lake today, in Webster, and get a firsthand look at the retractable fastback roof in action. And if you’re really feeling adventurous and in the market for a new sports car, take a new Mazda MX-5 Miata in Webster out for a spin.

The 2016 Mazda3 Tops a Toyota in Webster

 

If you've been shopping for a Toyota in Webster, you may want to reconsider and take a look at the 2016 Mazda3 instead at Mazda of Clear Lake! The Mazda3 has a lot to offer from its smart safety features to its passenger-friendly design and leaves the Toyota Corolla in the dust. Mazda of Clear Lake has all the details about these two vehicles, and we think you'll reconsider test-driving a Toyota in Webster after reading our comparison!

 

Whether you're driving around by yourself or transporting family and friends, good safety features are an important thing to consider when selecting your next vehicle. Luckily the Mazda3 has you covered with features like the optional Smart City Brake Support that warns you of possible forward collisions and applies the brakes if necessary, however the Corolla doesn't have this extra safety measure. The Mazda3 comes standard with E911 Automatic Emergency Notification that uses GPS to send emergency personnel to your location if airbags deploy. The Corolla offers a navigation system but lacks the emergency response feature so you'll have to call for help yourself.

 

If you're more interested in amenities, the 2016 Mazda3 has a lot to offer. You'll get a remote vehicle starting system, heads-up display, and adaptive headlights to help you maintain the best visibility on the road. The Mazda3 offers Radar Cruise Control to help you maintain a safe following distance even when you fail to pay attention to the car in front of you. Choose the Toyota Corolla and you'll have to say goodbye to all of those features.

 

If safety features and amenities aren't enough to win your vote, wait until you hear what the critics have to say about the Mazda3! Both the Mazda3 and Toyota Corolla have been recommended by Consumer Reports but only the Mazda3 has received 3 Kiplinger's Awards. The Mazda3 was chosen as one of Car and Driver's "Top Ten" for 4 of the last 7 years but the Corolla has never been a "Top Ten" pick.

 

 

If the 2016 Mazda3 hits everything on your wish list, pay a visit to Mazda of Clear Lake and take it for a test drive! We think you'll love it even more after seeing these features in action!
