2020 Nissan Altima vs 2020 Mazda6

Serving Chattanooga, TN

The Nissan Altima is understandably a midsize sedan placed at the top of your research list today. Its sixth-generation entered the market only two years ago, so its interior and exterior features and design elements are modern and preferred. The Mazda6 is a midsize car priced in the same ballpark as the Altima, so which of these cars is a better match for your specific preferences and needs?


From your first look at the 2020 Nissan Altima, you can appreciate the attention to detail that is found throughout its design. This is a distinctly sporty sedan with stunning molding on the lower sides and across the rear bumper. The hood shows off the dramatic flow with several accents that trend into the U-shaped grille. The metallic accents on the grille extend upward next to the pointed LED headlights. In comparison, the 2020 Mazda 6 has smoother surfaces from bumper to bumper. Minimal character across the hood and sides is balanced by a large front end. The Mazda6's nose is relatively flat and is mostly consumed by the large grille. The headlights and the lower portion of the grille are underlined by a chrome bar.


The interiors of the Altima and Mazda6 share some traits, such as the floating display screen mounted on top of the center stack. They also have stand-apart features that vary slightly as you compare the full trim lines. The Altima for 2020 places the push-button engine starter next to the display screen, and two air vents sit underneath the screen. A thick bar runs underneath the air vents and divides them from the climate system controls. The center console shows off a leather-wrapped gear shifter, a rotary controller for driving modes, and other equipment. The interior of the Mazda6 has a linear theme across the dashboard, which sets the stage for a layered look across the center stack. Through the center console and stack, you can find a leather gear shifter, climate management controls, beverage holders, and more.


The 2020 Nissan Altima's appeal extends through its ability to protect the driver and passengers on the road. Its many included or optional safety technologies and features include intelligent driver alertness, traffic sign recognition, high beam assist, active ride control, an intelligent surround-view monitor, and additional features. The Mazda6 for 2020 also has the protective gear. Some of these items are airbags, high beam control, stability control, tire pressure monitoring, hill launch assist, and a few other items.
