distance between left and right side of a vehicle influences on room in the cabin as well as stability on road. The Mazda is widther by 20 millimeters in relation to the Volkswagen and is not really important. The medium for the „D” segment is 1,764 millimeters and is by 5 percent larger than the same attribute of the Mazda 6 III.
The wheelbase of a vehicle equals the length between its front and rear wheels. The wheelbase significantly affects the driving due to more appropriate vehicle's weight distribution. Mazda has 1 percent longer wheelbase distance in relation to Volkswagen Passat B7 Limousine. Wheelbase dimensions are important to the balance and steering. Hence, the mass of Mazda 6 III should be better distributed and driving should be easier and safer.
The Mazda 6 III has 30 cc bigger engine size compared to the Volkswagen Passat B7 Limousine. As the difference is little, the Mazda should accelerate only slightly better, of course assuming that other paramerters are the same.
The Mazda 6 III Estate is 35 mm longer in relation to the Volkswagen. The length of the vehicle plays a role in terms of driving comfort and room in the boot. The Mazda 6 III Estate 2.0 SKYACTIV-G 145HP manual very likely will be offering to it's users more space for legs. At the same time the Mazda 6 III Estate 2.0 SKYACTIV-G 145HP manual will be better driven but the Volkswagen Passat B7 Limousine will be a little easier for parking because of shorter length of the body.
Number of doors
A five-door car generally means a hatchback and for that reason the Mazda 6 III Estate, which whole rear including the window lifts up and the rear seats folds flat giving more space for cargo, has an advantage over the 4-door Volkswagen which in turn has a smaller trunk cut off from the passenger compartment.
Model release date
Because of the fact that the Volkswagen Passat B7 Limousine 2.0 TDI CR DPF BlueMotion 140HP manual started to be manufactured only 2 years earlier than the Mazda 6 III, the distance in technology used in both cars is not really huge, however, the Mazda 6 III may have a bit more modern solutions used in it.
The higher a car is, the the more convenient is a getting in to it and greater capacity of putting massive amount of thinks to it. The difference between these two cars at the level of 6 millimeters in favor of the Mazda 6 III Estate is small and should not be really noticeable.
