We at DeMontrond Mazda have put together a competitor comparison of the 2015 Mazda6 vs. the 2015 Nissan Altima in Webster, TX, to make your decision process a little clearer.

Drivers who desire an interior with tons of luxury features will be pleasantly surprised by the 2015 Mazda6. For starters, it features leatherette upholstery while the 2015 Nissan Altima offers cloth. Luxury is also present in the leather wrapped steering wheel, a feature not available in the Altima. Listen to all the best music with standard HD radio in the Mazda6, which isn’t offered at all in the Altima.


This music and talk radio sounds even better when you pair it with the Mazda6’s premium 11-speaker Bose® Surround Sound System, another feature not offered in the Altima. Drivers and passengers of the 2015 Mazda6 who differ on temperature settings can use the standard climate control with separate settings for each, an option not offered in the 2015 Altima. For added comfort, make sure the air in your Mazda6’s cabin is free of pollen and allergens with the standard air filter, which also isn’t offered in the Altima.

Adding to these great luxury features is the fact that you can enjoy them while stretching out with ample space in both the front and the rear of your Mazda6. The front features 57.1 inches of shoulder room and 56.1 inches of hip room, while the Altima only has 56.4 inches of shoulder room and 54 inches of hip room.

This is another feature you’ll have to pay for in the Altima.
