2020 Mazda6 Signature
The top-level Signature trim joined the Mazda6 lineup for 2020, powered by the SKYACTIV-G 2.5T engine introduced in the CX-9. Mazda’s 2.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder unit produces 250 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque at 2000 rpm for excellent performance. The 2.5T gets mated with a SKYACTIV-Drive 6-speed automatic transmission delivering power to the front wheels. Mazda pairs the 2.5T engine with all-wheel drive in other models, which makes us wonder why AWD is not offered as an option for Mazda6. The latest Mazda6 continues a design language consistent with the popular CX-5 and CX-9 crossovers, with the most obvious update being a new grille flanked by standard LED headlights and integrated fog lights that give the Mazda6 a wide stance. Soul Red has become a signature Mazda color, and the new Mazda6 offers an even brighter and more striking finish than the Soul Red hues of earlier model years.
