This sleek midsize sedan is powered by a 2.5L SkyActiv-G 4-cylinder engine that delivers 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. At the same time, it uses gas at a rate of 9.1 L/100 km on city streets and 6.7 L/100 km on the highway.

The Mazda6 GS owes its thriftiness, in part, to Cylinder Deactivation Technology. During light-load driving, like cruising on the highway, two of its four cylinders shut down to save fuel. 

To make the process smooth, the Mazda6 has a fulcrum inside its six-speed SkyActiv-Drive automatic transmission. This setup ensures a seamless transition between two- and four-cylinder operations. The sedan also has a multi-stage split-injection system, which provides a proper fuel-air mixture that enhances performance.
