When shopping for a new car, there are several brands that you have to choose between. However, if you have a favorite brand, this can make the process much easier. Many brands have more than one option of a certain vehicle type. If you are a fan of Mazda and are looking for a new sedan, you have two options: the Mazda6 or the Mazda3 Sedan.
