Mazda 6 Atenza vs. Ford Mondeo Titanium EcoBoost
Mazda 6 Atenza and the Ford Mondeo Titanium EcoBoost, both of these cars offer upmarket features, punchy turbo charged engines and a premium finish. Let’s take a quick look at these two cars and see which is more worthy of your attention.
In Australia, the SUV and crossover vehicles continue to dominate the sales figures, and more traditional car segments generate fewer sales. However, this doesn’t mean that segments like the medium sized passenger cars are not hotly contested. This is excellent news for the customer as manufacturers are keen to provide better vehicles with extra features at competitive prices. This is undoubtedly true when you look at keen rivals, such as the Mazda 6 Atenza and the Ford Mondeo Titanium EcoBoost. Both of these cars offer upmarket features, punchy turbo charged engines and a premium finish. Let’s take a quick look at these two cars and see which is more worthy of your attention.
The Mazda 6 Atenza
This is the flagship Mazda 6; it’s packed with useful equipment and standard features, such as: push button start and proximity key, adaptive LED headlights, dual zone climate control, distance keeping cruise control, a speed limiter and 19” alloy wheels. There is an 8” touchscreen infotainment system with Sat Nav, digital radio, and 11 Bose speakers. At the moment the Mazda 6 doesn’t have Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, but this will be added later this year with an upgrade. There are some interesting features unique to the Mazda 6, such as traffic sign recognition linked to the cruise control or speed limiter and rear cross traffic alert.
The Ford Mondeo Titanium EcoBoost
This is also the flagship of the Mondeo range, this car is late in its lifecycle, but updates have kept it relatively fresh. This car has many of the standard features seen on the Mazda 6 listed above, but it does come with Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay support and the stereo system only has 9 Sony speakers. The Ford has some unique features, such as a drivers knee airbag and the ability to contact emergency service using Bluetooth after an accident.
Both of these cars are feature rich including safety features, such as autonomous emergency braking, driver attention monitoring, blind spot monitoring, lane keep assist, lane departure warnings, ABS brakes and electronic stability control. These features have given both cars a 5 star ANCAP safety rating. Both of these cars are very close in features and price, but the Mazda 6 edges it with a perky engine and handling, which makes it far more fun to drive.
