2015 Honda Accord vs 2015 Mazda6
While it might not be able to claim it is the best-selling car in Canada for the past 17 years, the Honda Accord is still one of the most popular vehicles in the Honda lineup, as evidenced as it has been around uninterrupted for several decades now. We wanted to give another midsize sedan a chance to give it a run for its money, so we took a closer look at the 2015 Honda Accord vs 2015 Mazda6 to see how close it might come in a direct comparison.
Advantages of the 2015 Honda Accord
As we expected coming from such a well-respected and popular vehicle, the 2015 Mazda6 certainly brought it to our midsize sedan. Let’s start from the top of the table above, with passenger volume. The Honda Accord definitely has a sizeable advantage in the way of 3 ½ cubic feet of extra space for your passengers to stretch out in, but it certainly isn’t the biggest difference we’ve ever seen in a vehicle. Similarly, the Accord also has a larger trunk than the Mazda6, in which it can hold quite a bit more stuff in its extra cubic foot. But again, certainly not as big of an advantage as it could’ve been
The Mazda6 comes even closer to the Honda Accord in terms of power output, as the Honda’s 185-horsepower engine has only one more horse than its competitor. The last area we took a look at was the fuel tank capacity, an area of the vehicle where the Accord again has a leg up but only in the way of 3 extra litres. You won’t have to stop as often on a long road trip, but it isn’t that significant.
In other words, the 2015 Mazda6 is a respectable opponent for our 2015 Honda Accord. What it might come down to is features and the visual aesthetic of the vehicles, and you can find much more about those areas of the Accord around our website.
