Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mazda Mazda6 than the Hyundai Sonata, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Sonata will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mazda Mazda6.

Convenience
The Hyundai Sonata will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Mazda Mazda6, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Hyundai Sonata will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mazda Mazda6. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Hyundai Sonata will cost more in transportation costs than the Mazda Mazda6.

Dimensions

Drivetrain
The Hyundai Sonata has much less torque than the Mazda Mazda6, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Hyundai Sonata has a smaller turning radius than the Mazda Mazda6, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.
