When equipped with 19-inch all-season tires, the Mazda6 earns a speed rating of 149 MPH. To deliver this agile burst of acceleration requires a meticulous level of engineering.
At Faulkner Mazda Trevose, our team is committed to helping Langhorne, Bensalem, and Philadelphia drivers better understand our Mazda6 lineup. To see how this stylish sedan is designed to elevate your daily drive, continue reading below!
A common misconception about speed rating is that it has do with what’s under the hood. In fact, a speed rating actually indicates the optimal speed your tires can safely maintain over long periods of driving.
This rating is determined through laboratory testing and governed by strict industry standards. For optimal performance, it’s important for drivers to stick with what’s listed inside their vehicle’s owner’s manual and choose tires that match the standards set by the manufacturer.
When matching the speed rating, use the 10-digit code found on the tire’s sidewall. You’ll want to make sure the code sequence ends with either the letter “T” or “V”. “T” denotes the tire has a 118 MPH speed rating, while “V” means the tire is safe to drive up to 149 MPH.
If you have any questions or need help figuring this out, the team in our tire center is a great resource to consult.
Now that you know how fast the Mazda6 can travel, let’s discuss how it achieves that dynamic power.
Delivering aerodynamic looks with the quiet confidence to match, the Mazda6 breathes new life into each drive.
Drivers who choose the Sport and Touring trims can experience 187 horsepower supplied by a 2.5L Skyactiv®-G 2.5L 4-cylinder engine. For increased levels of rev, higher trims include a turbocharged 2.5T Skyactiv®-G Dynamic Pressure Turbo 4-cylinder engine that reaches a remarkable 250 horsepower.
Whichever engine you choose, each works in tandem with a Skyactiv®-Drive 6-speed automatic transmission. Featuring manual shift and Sport modes, the Mazda6 provides more control over your daily commute.
When properly configured, drivers can experience the liberating feeling that an EPA-estimated 26 city/35 highway MPG supplies.*
Whichever engine setup you pick, each is paired to Skyactiv-Vehicle Dynamics with G-Vectoring Control Plus. Monitoring your personal habits, this special technology helps you steer more precisely and allows your wheels to maintain optimal grip.
To maintain its legendary balance, the Mazda6 attaches its tires to a 4-wheel independent multilink suspension. Supplying smooth stopping power, the hydraulic disc brakes also come with Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBFD).
This technology varies the amount of force applied to each brake based on your speed and road conditions. EBFD also takes into account the load inside the vehicle.
With specs like these in the Mazda6, there’s almost no limit to the amount of fun you can have while exploring the Trevose, Bensalem, and Philadelphia region.
