Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mazda Mazda6 than the Nissan Altima. The Nissan Altima will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mazda Mazda6.

Convenience
With the Nissan Altima you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Mazda Mazda6, due to its tank size and fuel economy.
