2018 Mazda6 vs 2018 BMW 530i vs 2018 Mercedes-Benz E 300


Do you desire a sporty luxury sedan, but not the accompanying price tag? If a BMW or a Mercedes-Benz seem out of reach, it’s time to consider the 2018 Mazda6 Signature, a car that delivers refined luxury and sporty performance at a fraction of the price. Here’s a look at how it compares to the BMW 530i Sedan and the Mercedes-Benz E 300 Sedan.


Engine and performance

The Mazda6 Signature’s SKYACTIV®-G 2.5-liter four-cylinder turbo engine delivers 250 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. That more than matches the BMW 530i’s 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque and the Mercedes-Benz E 300’s 241 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque.


Interior features

Inside the Mazda6 Signature, you’ll find a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated nappa leather-trimmed sport seats, driver’s seat memory, Sen Wood and Ultrasuede® door and dashboard trim inserts, an 11-speaker Bose® audio system, and an array of cutting-edge infotainment and safety technology. These are quite similar to the luxurious interior features you’ll find in the E 300 or the 530i.



Here’s where the Mazda6 Signature really excels. The BMW 530i’s starting MSRP is $52,650, while the Mercedes-Benz E 300 comes in at $52,950. The Mazda6 Signature, however, has an MSRP of just $34,750.* That’s right: even though the Signature offers many of the same luxurious, sporty features as a BMW or Mercedes sedan, it’ll cost you $18,000 less.

*MSRP excludes tax, title, license fees and $895 destination charge (Alaska $940). Model shown priced higher. Actual dealer price will vary.


The 2018 Mazda6 Signature offers performance and sophistication that compete with the big luxury brands while costing you far less. To experience the Mazda6 Signature for yourself, visit Mazda of Bedford, and we’ll get you behind the wheel for a test drive.
