The Mazda6 is everything you want and more. With Mazda being named as “2021 Best Car Brand,” by the U.S News & World Report, “Best Midsize Cars for 2020” by the Kelley Blue Book, and awarded as 2020 IIHS Top Safety Pick+, you can rest assured that when you choose a Mazda6, you’re getting the best there is to offer. Competitors like the Honda Accord set the bar with high standards, but the comparison between them will clarify why the Mazda6 is the better option to purchase. Learn why this midsize sedan rates higher than the Accord.
Starting at $24,325, the Mazda6 takes things to a whole new level. With premium materials like Nappa leather and Japanese Sen wood, the available Signature trim was created by Mazda artisans to envelop you in refined comfort. The Ultrasuede trim that lines the doors and dashboard features a subtle sheen derived from a similar technique used to make traditional Japanese kimonos. These elements combine to deliver a truly elevated driving experience.
You don’t just drive the Mazda6. You experience it. An innovation elevates every drive with available features such as heated and ventilated seats, a Bose 11-speaker audio system, an 8-inch full-color touch-screen display with Mazda Connect infotainment can make every drive a highlight of your day. Experience the ultimate in mobile connectivity with available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. Access your iPhone’s maps, playlists, contacts, and compatible apps with your voice through Siri.
As safety is a top priority for us, inside the Mazda6 is the technology that inspires confidence. Everything we do as a carmaker is centered around elevating your driving experience. That starts with eliminating distractions. To that end, the available Active Driving Display is placed at a precise angle for ideal visibility. The available i-Activsense vehicle safety features use sophisticated technologies to give you an added sense of safety to alert you to potential hazards and avert collisions or reduce their severity- before they happen. It’s another way Mazda helps you focus on the drive. Additional safety features include but are not limited to: high beam control, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning system, lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitoring, smart brake support, and much more!
The Mazda6 overall has an engine that works smarter, not harder. When you ask, it answers. Emphatically so. The Mazda6 standard model comes equipped with a 2.5L SKYACTIV-G 4-cylinder engine. But, the Mazda6 can be equipped with our available Skyactiv-G 2.5 Turbo engine. Delivering up to 250 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque, it’s engineered to be ultra-responsive at low rpm, with power to spare when you’re already off and running. It’s an effortless brand of energy that’s sure to elevate your mood, along with your heart rate.
The Honda Accord is one of the Mazda6’s top competitors. With a starting price of $24,970, it is more expensive than the Mazda6, and you will end up paying more while receiving less.
The technological features on the Accord are similar but not as advanced as the Mazda6. For example, the standard base Accord does not come equipped with a blind spot information system. But, every Accord does come equipped with Honda Sensing, a suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies designed to help protect you and your passengers. A superlative driving experience should even include your sense of hearing. The standard Accord comes with a 4-speaker audio system in terms of sound, while the Mazda6 uses an audio system with six speakers.
Although the standard Honda Accord is a fun, stylish, and capable vehicle, it uses a 1.5 L 4-cylinder engine, while the standard Mazda6 comes equipped with a 2.5L SKYACTIV-G 4-cylinder engine.
When comparing the two models, it is evident that either both could potentially be an excellent pick for your next purchase. But after careful review and consideration, the Mazda6 proves to be the better choice. With its innovative technology and safety features on the standard model, there is no reason why one shouldn’t purchase. You’ll receive an incredible ride while doing it all in style, and the highlight: luxury feels at an affordable price. Peace of mind on every drive is guaranteed, and the Mazda6 has a higher compression ratio than the Accord. After test-driving the Mazda6, you’ll be sure to be amazed and attached.
