The new Honda Accord is also an economical midsized Japanese car with dynamic performance. But we think the Mazda6 is a cut above the Accord, especially when it comes to handling and cabin quality. Keep reading to see why the Mazda6 has a little more of what people in Conroe want from a midsize sedan.

Compare the New Mazda6 with the New Honda Accord

  • The New Mazda6 Has Better Handling and Ride Quality: Most people in Houston want a car they can look forward to driving each day. The Mazda6 has responsive steering, solid braking, and agile handling that gives it some of the most enjoyable driving dynamics in its class. The Accord is fun to drive, but it can't quite match the Mazda6's nimble steering and strong braking.
  • The New Mazda6 Has a Nicer Interior: Both the Mazda6 and the Honda Accord have roomy cabins with comfortable seats. However, the 6 has first-rate materials and just the right amount of contrasting accent details to make it cozy and attractive. The Accord features a quality interior with plenty of soft-touch materials, but there are still some hard plastics present that make it look and feel less luxurious overall than the Mazda6.         
  • The New Mazda6 Has a Better Standard Infotainment System: The Honda Accord comes with a four-speaker stereo, a 7-inch infotainment display and Bluetooth. Drivers in Conroe, TX will prefer the Mazda6's system, which comes standard with a bigger, 8-inch touch screen, a six-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, and HD radio.       
  • Its Easier to Load Cargo in the New Mazda6: The Honda Accord and Mazda6 have similar-sized trunks, and the Accord's trunk is actually a little bigger. However, the 6's trunk opening is wide, making it easy for people in Houston to load groceries, luggage, or whatever they take on the road with them. The Accord has a narrow trunk opening, making it trickier to load.        
  • The New Mazda6 Has More Safety Features: Both the Honda Accord and Mazda6 come with a plethora of safety features, but the Mazda6 has more. Safety-conscious drivers in Houston will appreciate that the 6 comes standard with rain-sensing windshield wipers and pedestrian detection. The Accord doesn't offer rain-sensing windshield wipers or the pedestrian detection feature. Also, the 6 has an optional surround-view parking camera system that is not available in the Accord.       
  • The New Mazda6 Has a Longer Powertrain Warranty: The Accord is covered by a three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and a five-year/50,000-mile powertrain warranty. People in Conroe will have more peace of mind with the Mazda6, which is backed by a three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty.
