2017 Mazda6 vs. 2017 Honda Accord
When a buyer decides to purchase a vehicle in the competitive midsize sedan segment, by and large, they know what they’re getting. They’re doing their best to get a vehicle that offers an accommodating interior cabin, a performance profile that is equal parts powerful and efficient, and is appealing to look upon. And two currently available models -- the 2017 Mazda6 and 2017 Honda Accord -- are regularly mentioned among the best around. So, how do they compare to each other?
Under the respective hoods of the 2017 Mazda6 and 2017 Honda Accord, buyers are treated to two engines that are relatively similar in terms of displacement and performance output. The Mazda6 employs a 2.5L inline four-cylinder engine, whereas the Accord offers a 2.4L inline four-cylinder; this results in a slight edge in terms of horsepower for the Accord, while the Mazda6 holds a small advantage in fuel economy and torque rating. Additionally, the Mazda6 offers a starting MSRP slightly below that of the competing Accord.
