Comparing 2017 Toyota Camry versus 2017 Mazda6

You probably already know a good bit about Toyota Camry. After all, it’s been the number one selling car in America for well over a decade now. The Mazda6, however, remains a niche vehicle that doesn’t get as much publicity as the Camry. If you happen to be considering these two cars, you might be wondering what they look like when compared head to head. Well, read on to find out how the 2017 Toyota Camry compared to 2017 Mazda6 in several different categories.

The Undisputed Champion

Toyota Camry has been the Best Selling Car in America for the last 15 Years

2017 Toyota Camry versus 2017 Mazda6 Exterior

When taking into consideration raw dimension data, these two cars really don’t distinguish themselves from each other. The Mazda6 is a bit longer and wider than Camry, but only within an inch or two. As far as exterior style goes, it’s an incredibly subjective area. The 2017 Mazda6 does exude more of a sporty vibe than that of the Camry. We have to give credit where credit is due, however, to the Camry. The most recent redesign injected a big dose of sport and style into the Camry, and it’s now on par in the looks category with Mazda6.

Our Exterior Comparison Verdict: Tie.

2017 Toyota Camry versus 2017 Mazda6 Interior

The 2017 Toyota Camry provides a bit more front and rear head room than the 2017 Mazda6. The difference is, however, minimal and represents less than an inch between the two. That’s not the case when comparing total interior volume between the two cars. The 2017 Camry pulls ahead of the Mazda6 in the interior room department with 102.7 cubic feet of total interior volume. Mazda6 only offers 99.7 cubic feet. If you don’t think that three extra feet of space makes a difference, then think again. When you are packing the kids, luggage, dog and other gear for a long road trip, every inch and foot counts.

Our Interior Comparison Verdict: Camry.
