2015 Mazda6 vs. 2015 Nissan Altima

2015 Mazda6 Chicago Naperville

In a segment where breaking from the mold is usually only done to an automaker’s folly, two models have always been bold about setting themselves apart. Now, they are both available to Chicago-drivers at Continental Motors, where drivers are free to schedule a test drive. But how do the 2015 Mazda6 and 2015 Nissan Altima look side-by-side? (Pretty sexy. Yes, we know.)

In looking at these two sterling entries in the mid-size sedan segment, one clear distinction stands out between the two: their transmissions. Luckily for the indecisive shopper, this may provide the clarity needed to make an educated decision. On the one hand, the Altima features its popular Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), which alters shifting ratios on-the-fly for seamless acceleration. However, as this option certainly isn’t for everyone, in steps the Mazda6 with an alternative: an available six-speed manual transmission. For those who still long for the personal aspect of shifting and revving, the Mazda6 might provide a more attractive option.

Fortunately for the discerning Chicago driver, both these options are now available at Continental Motors! Test drive both today!

Where other sedan options might be content to simply coast through model years that don’t feature wholesale changes, these two bring their best each and every time out. With the Mazda6, you are receiving one of the most eye-catching interior cabins available in a family car, alongside updated telematics technology and performance aspects that have made it one of the more well-regarded vehicles in recent years. The flagship model of Mazda's acclaimed line of passenger vehicles is, without a doubt, a force to be reckoned with.

In the 2015 Nissan Altima, meanwhile, we have a vehicle who truly strives to check all the boxes in building the ideal mid-size sedan. With spirited performance, a full suite of standard safety features and an interior cabin that is more sophisticated than its price tag would suggest, the Altima continues to change the way that Chicago drivers look at the modern family car. Although its name is certainly familiar to auto enthusiats, the level of quality the name carries frequently isn't.

Each of these vehicles is available to test drive today at Continental Motors. Contact our staff today for full pricing and financing information!
