The Mazda 6 (known also as the Mazda6 and, in China and Japan, the Mazda Atenza) is a large family car that has been in production since 2002. Currently in its third generation, the Mazda 6 has sold over one million units since its introduction and is one of Mazda’s best-selling vehicles, reaching the one million unit mark faster than any other Mazda unit in history. The Mazda 6 was the first vehicle to be introduced under Mazda’s new Stylish, Insightful, Spirited sales philosophy, one that has since paid dividends quite handsomely. The Mazda 6 is the successor of the Mazda 626, a line of automobiles that is still popular among some people even today. Despite succeeding the 626 it is still built on the same platform as the 626, essentially making the Mazda 6 a rebadged 626.
Though when the Mazda 6 was first introduced (and through its second generation) it was available in a four-door sedan, five-door hatchback and four-door estate variant, for the third generation – introduced in 2012 for the 2013 model year – the five-door hatchback was dropped and the estate was rebranded as a station wagon, so that now only the four-door sedan and five-door station wagon (estate) variants are available worldwide. Only the four-door sedan is available in the U.S., though it has three different variants you can choose from: the Mazda6 Sport, Touring and Grand Touring sub-models. All three come with a 2.5L, 183hp Straight-4 engine and all feature keyless entry, Bluetooth compatibility, push-start functionality and alloy wheels standard. Both the Sport and Touring models come with either a six-speed automatic or a six-speed manual transmission, though the Grand Touring model features only the six-speed automatic. The base Sport model starts at just over $20,000, with the Touring starting at around $23,000 and the Grand Touring around $29,000.

The Mazda 6 is a mid-size car along the same basic line as the Honda Accord and the Ford Fusion, which means that you’ll likely see the same types of pricing structures and price points as most other mid-size cars. The Mazda 6 is the flagship of Mazda’s lineup, and the fact that it’s a mid-size car puts it squarely in the “standard” category when it comes to car transportation services – you won’t see any oversize vehicle shipping fees or anything like that; those are reserved for pickup trucks, cargo vans and sport utility vehicles on the whole. Really the most important factors regarding your car shipping prices are going to be your pickup and delivery locations – specifically, where they are in relation to each other and how far apart they are. Rural areas will likely be more expensive to ship to or from, as will areas that see significant winter weather, such as cities in the Rocky Mountains or by the Great Lakes (see: Denver, Chicago).
