2018 Mazda6 vs. 2018 Honda Accord

Driving around the Bronx area, you’re bound to see at least a few of your neighbors behind the wheels of dependable and fun-to-drive sedans like the 2018 Mazda6 and the 2018 Honda Accord. Although both of these sedans offer similar powertrain specs and cabin dimensions, the Mazda sedan’s standard interior features, safety components, and standard SKYACTIV® TECHNOLOGY suite make it a solid choice. Find out how the Honda Accord measures up against the Mazda6 before scheduling your test drive with Mazda of New Rochelle.

Mazda6 Interior vs. Accord Interior

With 105.6 cubic feet of passenger space and 16.7 cubic feet of storage in the trunk, the Accord offers slightly more generous dimensions to its passengers. Although the smaller, heavier Mazda6 only offers 99.7 cubic feet of passenger volume and 14.7 cubic feet of cargo volume, it’s interior offers upscale features that you’ll have to pay extra to access in the Accord.

The Mazda sedan’s Leather-Wrapped Steering Wheel and Shift Knob come standard right from the start, but you’ll have to upgrade to the Accord’s Sport trim to get these comfort features in your Honda. The Mazda6 sedan’s standard audio system possesses two more speakers than that of the Accord, and the former also includes an SMS Text Message function that isn’t found in the Accord’s baseline trim.

Mazda6 Safety Ratings vs. Accord Safety Ratings

The 2018 Honda Accord and the 2018 Mazda6 received nearly identical crash test ratings from the NHTSA, and each earned a perfect overall safety score of five stars! As one might expect, the Mazda6 safety features are similar to those you’ll find in the Accord, but there are several differences worth exploring. The Accord offers Honda Sensing safety features, including:

  • Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Road Departure Mitigation
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System

Although lane guidance and departure warnings are only available starting in the Touring trim of the Mazda6, the latter offers Smart City Brake Support and Blind Spot Monitoring right from the start! Our neighbors in Manhattan, White Plains, and beyond will have to pay extra to access blind spot monitoring in the Accord.
