Mazda6’s SKYACTIV-DRIVE six-speed automatic transmission is a $1,050 standalone option on Sport and Touring trim levels.

Upgrading to Mazda6 Touring trim yields 19-inch alloy wheels, leatherette seating surfaces, Blind Spot Monitoring System (BSM), Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA), Mazda Advanced Keyless Entry, dual-zone climate control, rear vents and a six-way power driver’s seat.

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.

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.

      Ford's latest ST model, the 2019 Edge ST will be arriving at dealers later this summer with a base price of $43,350 (including destination). According to CarsDirect, the ST is $1,585 more expensive than the Edge Sport it replaces. But you're getting more car for the money.
      To begin, the Edge ST has a 2.7L EcoBoost V6 producing 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. The Sport's 2.7L EcoBoost only produced 315 hp and 350 lb-ft. There's also a new eight-speed automatic with rev-matching, retuned suspension, and a more aggressive body kit.
      An optional Performance Brake Package that brings forth larger brake rotors and red calipers will add $2,695 to the base price. But as CarsDirect notes, you'll need to add Equipment Group 401A to get the brake package. 401A includes a number of comfort and convenience features such as heated and ventilated front seats; 180-degree camera, hands-free liftgate, navigation, and Ford's CoPilot+ suite of driver aids for an additional $5,585.
