2018 Audi A3 vs. 2018 Mazda 6

Many of the car shoppers in New York always know that there are several choices in the world of luxury cars. More often than not, the price is a big factor in the purchase. But truth be told, there are a lot of things to weigh on when you want to make sure you get your money's worth. If you happen to be torn between the 2018 Audi A3 and the 2018 Mazda 6 then we want to help you ease out that burden through this comparison.

Design & Style

Mazda is one of those top brands that offer a cool look for its exteriors. You will find this a standout quality in the 2018 Mazda S6, which apart from its sporty look, also combined elegance to make it even look better. The slim headlights go well with its front part and the addition of the five-point grille makes it standout even more. You will love the insides of it as well because the dashboard is not at all cramped up and the seats are very much comfortable.

Of course, the 2018 Audi A3 will not just leave without any fight. After all, it will not be an Audi car model for nothing. Exuding elegance from the exterior, you will see how luxurious it gets once you are inside. Seats are soft and comfortable and every piece has been crafted with the most excellent quality materials. The cabin has enough space for taller drivers too.

Technology & Safety

There are a lot of great things notable in the 2018 Mazda 6, technology and safety wise. First on the list is the fact that the infotainment system includes a large enough 8-inch touchscreen display. It comes fitted with safety features with adaptive cruise control topping the list.

Undeniably, however, the 2018 Audi A3 never fails to impress in the technology and safety aspect. It is gifted with Audi-exclusive MMI infotainment system which has grown in popularity for its user-friendliness and for the inclusion of smartphone integration in the format. For safety purposes, you can rely on its advance lane departure warning system and adaptive cruise control.


The 2018 Mazda 6 must have put an effort with its inline four-cylinder, 2.5-liter engine as it can produce power that can reach a maximum of 310lb-ft of torque and 250 horsepower. It is understandable though that what the 2018 Audi A3 produces is lower than that of the Mazda 6 because its four-cylinder engine has only 2.0-liter capacity. This yields up to 220 horsepower and 258lb-ft of torque.

The Bottom Line

The 2018 Audi A3 has all the things you are looking for in a car. Yes, it may lag a few horsepower behind the Mazda 6 which can somewhat make you say no to it in terms of performance but it still is one of the best finds you will have in the world of luxury cars these days. After all, it offers a great balance between design and style, as well as technology and safety. You need not ask for more.
