2017 Mazda6 vs 2017 Chevy Malibu near Columbia, SC

 

Additional Vehicle Information

When you are on the hunt for a new sedan, trust the folks at Gerald Jones Mazda to help make the choice easier with our 2017 Mazda6 vs 2017 Chevy Malibu near Columbia, SC, comparison. Once you’ve seen all the benefits of driving the Mazda6, come and experience it for yourself with a test drive!

Our head-to-head of these models will start with what kind of mechanics they offer underneath the hood. Whether you are commuting through traffic on Devine Street or taking a trip out the Congaree National Park, you’ll get superior performance out of the Mazda6. It’s standard 2.5L 4-cylinder engine gets excitement and power with 184-hp and 185 lb.-ft. of torque. The Malibu lags behind with only 160-hp and 184 lb.-ft. of torque from its standard 1.5L 4-cylinder engine. Efficiency is key for most buyers, but don’t let the slight difference between these two fool you. Although the Chevy Malibu gets 36 MPG hwy1 next to the Mazda6’s 35 MPG hwy2, you’ll be able to really get the most out of each trip to the gas station with the Mazda6 and its larger 16.4-gallon fuel tank. The Malibu can only hold 13-gallons, which translates into less mileag between pit stops.

When it comes to creating an oasis out of your sedan, the Mazda6 takes another win in this 2017 Mazda6 vs 2017 Chevy Malibu near Columbia, SC, comparison. Standard features in the Mazda6 include a rear view camera3, Bluetooth®4 hands-free phone and audio capability, and a 7-inch touchscreen. All of these features will cost you an extra package or a higher trim level in the Malibu. If you want the convenience of remote keyless entry and push button start, you’ll also get that standard in the Mazda6 – another feature that will cost you extra in the Malibu. If you want to splurge on some luxury to beat the winter heat, go ahead and add available heating for the both the front and the rear seats in the Mazda6. Unfortunately, in the Malibu rear passengers are left out in the cold as it only offers heating for the front seats – regardless of what trim level you choose.

In terms of exterior features, you’ll find that the Mazda6 has a host of modern elements, even on the base trim level. Ensure you can be seen with the Mazda6’s LED taillights, a feature that is only included in the highest trim level of the Malibu, plus turn signals on the side mirrors so everyone will know your next move. Plus, you’ll have the option to add the Soul Red Paint with Mazda’s signature three-coat process. This kind of unique coloring is not available if you choose the Malibu.

There’s never been a better time to get behind the wheel of the Mazda6, as we’ve show with this 2017 Mazda6 vs 2017 Chevy Malibu near Columbia, SC, comparison. Here at Gerald Jones Mazda, we have the impressive Mazda6 ready for you to take home today!

I have Been to a few dealerships after buying vehicles but never have I been mor pleased. Drop off took minutes if that and pick up was just as easy. The thing that stands out the most is the eagerness to go the extra mile for us in our situation. I'd give them 50 stars if Possible.

Was extremely happy with Keith, the sales person that helped us. I never felt pressured and he listened to what I had to say and took it into consideration in helping us find a car. Even though it was a rather lengthy process it was worth it and everyone we came in contact with was nice and courteous and kept us informed of what was going on while we were waiting. I am glad we went to this dealership and I am glad Keith is the one that greeted us and helped us get a car.

These people are great! Most dealerships, the sales team HAVE to be nice to you obviously because they are trying to sale you a car. But even after I purchased a car from them, they are super nice and just very awesome people to deal with. The salesman who I dealt with, Denny, went above and beyond to help out. His manager was great as well! Awesome service team as well. Again, all just great people. Highly recommend this place if you are out looking for a brand new car.

The salesperson with whom I worked, Kieth, was courteous, knowledgeable of his product, supported by superior sales management in Pat, worked hard to get us into the car we wanted at the perfect price point. Post-sale support, including installation of hardware by service days later was superior. Cannot rate them high enough.

This was the first service, so it was free... free is always welcome. Service was done quickly, they accommodated my request to leave the car overnight, and the service covered a lot of items besides just oil and filter. Oh, and the invoice estimated what my next service would entail and cost. Great job!

Eric was very friendly, helpful and patient. I had done a lot of research on GJ website and other dealers, as well as an internet search on the vehicle. He was able to answer all of my questions. I had test driven a car in October but was not ready to make a purchase at that time. He stayed in touch via email. I do not like really "pushy" sales and appreciate his more reserved sales approach.

Awesome!

Dwight was awesome! Everyone in the garage at the computers were so kind. Deborah spent time with me, and didn't rush me. The service rep. who helped me Tuesday morning was great, but I forgot his name. These three individuals changed my mind about coming to the Mazda dealership more often! 2009 Mazda Mazda3
