will have more standard equipment than the outgoing sedan, and will be

which produces 184 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque, with a redline

manual transmission as standard equipment, for the drivers that prefer

transmission is also available as an option.
Fuel economy for the 2014 Mazda6 is among the best in its class, at 5.1
