2019 Volkswagen Arteon vs. 2018 Mazda6

Everyone at Spitzer Volkswagen is eagerly awaiting the arrival of the next-generation of VW sedans. A comparison between the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon vs. 2018 Mazda6 will clearly illustrate how the upcoming model will make an instant case for being the best in the segment. Volkswagen has plans to reinvigorate the midsize sedan segment with the Arteon and its award-winning global chassis architecture that not only helps make the vehicle more engaging to drive but also allows for a roomy interior with a very distinctive roofline. Additionally, the 2019 Arteon offers more advanced technology and better performance scores than its Mazda sedan rival. Future owners of the all-new Arteon can also find peace of mind in the automaker’s People First Warranty program.

To be completely honest, the 2018 Mazda6 is one of the best-looking sedans on the market today. However, the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon has all of the elements in place to knock it off its perch. When a Spitzer VW customer looks at the 2019 Arteon for the first time, it’s unique exterior will instantly set itself apart from the rest of the class. Under normal circumstances, a fastback design – like the one used by the Arteon – would mean compromised headroom for taller passengers in the back seat. Volkswagen has not only avoided this pitfall, but they also managed to provide plenty of space for customers to stretch their legs. While both vehicles do offer a touchscreen interface, the VW infotainment system is compatible with today’s most popular smartphones, a capability not found with the 2018 Mazda6.

Performance Specs

Just because the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon and 2018 Mazda6 both use similar engines, doesn’t mean that they are equals in terms of performance. All of the coming trim grades of the 2019 Arteon employ a turbocharged, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Volkswagen powertrain will make 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. All-wheel-drive can be added as an option across the board. Mazda uses a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine attached to a six-speed manual with an automatic gear-changer available as an option. Upper trims of the 2018 Mazda6 add a turbocharger to the powerplant, but there is no configuration that will match the output produced by the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon.
