Both the Honda Accord and the Mazda6 were both redesigned and re-engineered a couple of years ago and have become some of the best options in the mid-size sedan segment. Both recently refreshed models offer a ton of new technology features and outstanding interior quality. They also offer great driving comfort with great fuel economy.
With that in mind, we decided to put the 2016 Honda Accord head-to-head with the 2016 Mazda6. Since the 2016 Honda Accord is offered with a 4-cylinder and V6 engine and the Mazda6 is only available with a 4-cylinder engine – we are going to compare the Honda Accord 2.4 liter with the 2.5 liter Mazda6. Let’s take a look!
