2020 MAZDA6 vs 2020 Honda Accord

Serving Troy, MI

With all of the options out there, buying a new vehicle can be stressful. If you are looking for a new sedan, you will likely consider the Mazda6 and the Honda Accord. Although these vehicles may seem equally appealing, there are a few significant ways that the Mazda6 outshines the Accord. Let's take a look at three examples of this.


When spending a lot more time behind the wheel, it is essential for the vehicle to be fun to drive on top of efficiency and safety. The base engine for the Mazda6 is a turbocharged 2.5L four-cylinder that will produce 227-horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. It is the torque that makes a vehicle accelerate quickly and feel responsive. On the other hand, the standard turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder for the Accord produces only 192-horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque. If you go with the optional turbocharged I4, you get 252-horsepower but only 273 lb-ft of torque. Ultimately, the Mazda6's standard engine is way more fun that the Accord's standard and even outshines its optional one in some ways.

Cargo Capacity

A sedan needs to be as efficient as possible. When opening the trunk of the Mazda6, you will notice that it uses concealed hinges. This is not the case for the Accord, resulting in the hinges reducing the available amount of trunk space. Further adding to the appeal of the Mazda6 is the standard split-folding rear seat, which allows you to carry both a rear passenger and longer pieces of cargo. The entry-level model of the Accord's back seat does not split when it folds, reducing your options for carrying cargo and passengers.

Stopping Distance

Drivers want to know that their vehicle can stop in a hurry when need be. That is what makes the Mazda6 an even more appealing choice. In tests taking the vehicles from 60 mph down to zero, the Mazda6 needed only 121 feet where the Accord needed 135 feet. That extra 14 feet can be the difference between a safe stop and a disaster. In wet conditions, the Mazda6 went from 60 mph to 0 in 137 feet, where the Accord needed 142 feet.
