When it comes to Sedans, Mazda maintains two different models, the Mazda3 and the Mazda6. The easiest way to remember the differences between them is to remember that the smaller number belongs to the smaller car. The Mazda3 is considered a compact car while the Mazda6 is labeled as ‘mid-sized.’ Both Mazda sedans use similar engine, safety, and entertainment technology, but the differences that set them apart lie elsewhere.
