Honda Accord Vs Mazda 6
Honda Interior: Spacious and Luxurious
The beauty of the mid-sized sedan is that it is a compact vehicle with ample space and interior luxury. Both the Accord and the 6 are masters of both these feats. Both vehicles are spacious and come with top-of-the-line features. Both models feature extensive console center hubs operated through a touch screen, with features like navigation, social media and phone integration and various audio media options. While the Mazda 6 has a finely finished interior and supremely crafted visual display, the Honda Accord has really stepped up its game and provides the driver and passengers with something the mid-sized sedan needs to provide. Options.
The Honda accord comes with heated seats, a hushed interior cabin that reduces exterior noise, a lush sound system, HondaLink support and infotainment centre. It is these fabulous features, combined with a spacious and comfortable interior that I give this round to the 2015 Honda Accord.
The mid-sized sedan class delivers not just the beauty, but the brawn as well. Both the 2015 Honda Accord and the 2015 Mazda 6 pack quite the punch under the hood. The Mazda 6 comes equipped with a 2.5L Inline four-cylinder engine that pumps out 184 horse power, while still being a fuel efficient automobile. The 2015 Honda Accord has 185 horsepower through the innovative 2.4-litre, 16-valve, Direct Injection, i-VTEC engine. The Accord also has a Constant Variable Transmission, which helps keep efficiency at the forefront of its performance. Again, this leg goes to the Accord on experience.
Honda Safety: A Consistent Leader
Both of these vehicles pride themselves on innovation and comfort. There’s a certain amount of comfort that comes from how you feel when you’re in the car, but a large portion of the comfort, and peace of mind for that matter, comes from knowing the vehicle you are driving is safe.
Honda and specifically the Accord has a long legacy of dependability. Decades of reliable vehicles that have developed superb safety technology. Nothing against the Mazda 6, but it just doesn’t have the experience or years of development behind it. For that, the Accord takes the cake here as well.
Consider Your Total Cost of Ownership
The mid-sized sedan is a vehicle class that has the ability to provide top-level performance, beauty, and luxury, all while being available at a manageable price. While the 2015 Mazda 6 may have a cheaper sticker price, the 2015 Honda Accord has cheaper fuel economy, which long-term will end up saving you more money, which makes it a smarter investment.
When it comes down to it. Choosing between such heavyweights is a tough call. While the Mazda 6 has its appeal, offering a much different look than the Accord, it doesn’t hold a candle to it. The Accord has a bouquet of excellent and functional features, with the reliable of years of craftsmanship behind it. Factor that in with great fuel economy and a beautiful exterior to boot to get a near perfect automobile.
The winner is the 2015 Honda Accord, available now in Edmonton at Alberta Honda.
