If you're looking for an energetic sedan that can make a powerful statement around East Stroudsburg, Stroudsburg, Easton, Brodheadsville, and Saylorsville, PA, the Mazda6 and the Audi A3 are two great options. The question is: Which sedan is the right fit for you?

Our team at Ray Price Mazda is here to help answer that question with our 2020 Mazda6 vs. Audi A3 comparison. Let's see who comes out on top!

MAZDA6 vs Audi A3: Commanding Performance

Both sedans offer two available engines, but you'll have more power with the standard Skyactiv®-G 2.5L 4-cylinder engine of the Mazda6. It produces 187 horsepower, while the 2.0L 40 TFSI® of the Audi A3 is maxed out at just 184 horsepower.

If you want more excitement out of the A3, you can upgrade to the available 2.0L 45 TFSI® engine. It cranks out 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The available Skyactiv®-G 2.5T Dynamic Pressure Turbo engine of the Mazda6 will give you even more exhilaration. It kicks out up to 250 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque.

G-Vectoring Control Plus is one performance feature that you'll only find on the Mazda6. When taking on a tight turn, it adjusts the engine output and shifts the vehicle's weight. This results in less fatigue and a more engaging ride.

Sophisticated & Comfortable Interiors

There's seating for five in both sedans, but as everyone gets settled into the available leather-trimmed upholstery, they'll find more room to stretch out in the Mazda6. It boasts 42.2 inches of front legroom and another 38.7 inches in the back. The Audi A3 tops out at just 41.2 inches up front and 35.1 inches for the folks in the back.

Both models offer an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat, so you can personalize your support. Plus, on a cold morning, the available heated front seats will keep you cozy. What about those hot summer afternoons? The 2020 Mazda6 has you covered, with its ventilated front seats.

You may be more at peace inside the Mazda6. Its sound-insulating glass and acoustic insulation pair with the precisely tuned suspension to bring you peace and quiet on the road. You'll be able to have a conversation with your passengers, listen to your favorite tunes, or just relax with your thoughts.

2020 MAZDA6 vs 2020 A3: Innovative Technology

You'll be able to keep up with your favorite apps and most popular playlists in either sedan. They both offer Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration, but you'll find the standard 8-inch touchscreen in the Mazda6 a bit more user-friendly than the 7-inch MMI® display in the A3.

The Mazda6 comes standard with Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert. It will alert you to approaching vehicles, so you can change lanes and back out of tight parking spots with ease. Audi side assist comes with similar technology, but it's not a standard feature.

If you need more confidence in the parking lot, both sedans come with front and rear parking sensors that can tell you how close you are to potential obstacles. You'll only get a 360º View Monitor with the Mazda6, though. It will expand your field of view, so you can slide into tight spots.

MAZDA6 vs Audi A3: We Have a Winner

It was a close competition, but if you need a sedan with more power, a peaceful interior, and more standard technology, you'll want to choose the Mazda6.

Take it to the streets of East Stroudsburg, Stroudsburg, Easton, Brodheadsville, and Saylorsville, Pennsylvania, to see if it's right for you.
