One of the most popular types of vehicles on the road today are midsize sedans, which are popular due to their great safety features, comfort, strong fuel efficiency, and relatively low prices. When you are looking for a new midsize sedan, two of the most popular options are the Mazda6 and the Honda Accord. Overall, the Mazda6 has a variety of features that can make it a much better option than the Accord.

Steering and Handling

For most critics, one of the most obvious advantages of the Mazda6 is the more enhanced steering and handling system. The Mazda6 is considered one of the most comfortable midsize sedans to drive and control, which is ideal when you are looking to take long drives that require a lot of moves. The Accord, on the other hand, is considered more clunky and less responsive. This is largely due to the better suspension system that comes standard in the Mazda6.

Engine Size

For those that are looking for a naturally aspirated engine, the Mazda6 is a better choice. The Mazda6 comes standard with a 2.5-liter engine that has four cylinders while the Accord comes standard with a 1.5-liter turbo engine, which is subject to turbo lag.

Styling and Features

For those that are looking for a midsize SUV that has more style, the Mazda6 is a great option to consider. Due to the sheer volume of Accord sales, and the lack of body changes from year to year, the Accord is frequently considered a very generic vehicle. The Mazda6, on the other hand, comes standard with a body that is more sleek than the Accord. Furthermore, the Mazda6 has more trim levels that come with some of the higher interior comfort and luxury features. For example, leather upholstery and other upgradeable features come standard in more trim levels with the Mazda6 than they do with the Accord.

If you are interested in learning more about the Mazda6, you should stop by the dealership. When you arrive, you will be able to test-drive the Mazda6 and see for yourself how it compares favorably to the Accord.
