    It is great pricing for what is probably the best mid-size sedan out there.  And compare that pricing to a lot of compact/small crossovers.  You could spend that on a Honda HR-V or Trax or Fiat 500x and those don't offer anywhere near the equipment or seating room of a Mazda 6.

    yeah, as long as AWD isn't a requirement, the Mazda 6 is probably the best sedan choice out there.

    then also, an optional motor with more juice.

    I think @William Maley reported that the CX-9 engine will go in there.

    They could put AWD on the Mazda 6, and they could turbo it too.  So those are easy add ons.  I would imagine a lot of those mini-ute buyers even if they do get all wheel drive, they probably don't even need it.  They probably live somewhere where it snows 5 times a year, and when it does, they stay home because they are afraid to drive in it.

    The noise issue for a sedan is very real.  Trying to figure out what to replace the TDI Jetta with when VW buys it back.  I have gotten well over 50 MPG on many trips.

    Six is a very nice car.

      Last month in the rumorpile, we reported that Mazda would be launching two new engine options for the 2021 3; a turbocharged 2.5L four and 2.0L four. Today, Mazda comfirmed the rumors with the announcement of 2021 3.
      The turbocharged 2.5L four-cylinder is an engine we know quite well as it powers the CX-5, CX-9, and 6 sedan. Output is rated at 227 horsepower and 310 pound-feet (or 250 hp and 320 lb-ft when running on 93 octane). It will come solely paired with a six-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. This model will be positioned above the top-line Premium trim and adds such items as a heated steering wheel, enlarged exhaust tips, and 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels,
      As for the 2.0L SkyActiv-G four-cylinder, again its an engine we know from the last-generation 3 and CX-3. It produces a modest 155 hp and 150 lb-ft. This engine is only available on the sedan.
      We don't have any word on pricing, but we're guessing that 2.0L sedan will be around $20k to $21k. As for the turbo, expect base prices possibly between $28k to $32k. The 2.0L sedan arrives at dealers in August, while the turbo comes in towards the end of the year.

      According to separate reports from Jalopnik and Hagerty, Mazda will be dropping in the turbocharged 2.5L four-cylinder found in the 6, CX-5, and CX-9. The engine produces 227 horsepower on regular or 250 on premium. Like other Mazda models with this engine, the 3 will have it paired only with a six-speed automatic. Both reports say the engine will have AWD as standard. According to Hagerty's source, the engine will be available on a new trim called Premium Plus - likely taking the top spot in the 3's trim lineup. The source also confirmed this engine will not mean the return of the Mazdaspeed name for a hot variant. 
      The other engine is a 2.0L four-cylinder that Jalopnik reports is only for the sedan. Hagerty believes this engine is the SkyActiv-G used in the previous-generation 3, not the SkyActiv-X with its compression-ignition system.
      Not surprisingly, Mazda said they "“have not announced any details for the 2021 Mazda3," when asked about this.
