  2018 Mazda6 refresh takes the car further upmarket A new engine and Signature trim spice things up.The 2018 Mazda6 is, on the surface, a very mild refresh. The front grille has been given more depth, and the fascia is generally cleaned up a bit, putting the design inline with the new CX-5 and future Mazda products. The interior has been given the same treatment: cleaned up and modernized.

A refresh endowed the 2018 Mazda6 with updated looks and a new turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine option that offers customers the power many have been clamoring for.

Official fuel economy estimates for the 2018 Mazda6 line were posted recently on the EPA's fueleconomy.gov, and the 2.5-liter turbo version is rated at 23/31/26 mpg (10.2/7.6/9 L/100km) city/highway/combined.

The Mazda6's turbo engine comes paired exclusively with a six-speed automatic and features cylinder deactivation.
