2016 Honda Accord vs 2016 Mazda6
As we’ve mentioned several times, even though the Honda Civic has been the best-selling passenger car in Canada for the past seventeen years, the Honda Accord isn’t far behind it in terms of popularity. The midsize car, available in both coupe and sedan models, offers plenty of great specs and features to get excited about, so we thought we’d compare it to another popular option in the classification. This time around we decided to pit the 2016 Honda Accord vs 2016 Mazda6 to see which vehicle was superior and in what areas.
Advantages of the 2016 Honda Accord
We were actually a little surprised at just how comparable the two midsize cars were once we stacked them up next to one another. For instance, starting at the top of the table, the Accord only has one extra horsepower than the Mazda6. Furthermore, the Accord’s competitor utilizes half of a litre less per 100 kilometres on the highway, saving drivers money at the gas pump.
However when it comes to space, the Accord flips the tables and shows its dominant colors. In terms of cargo capacity, so the trunk in particular, the Accord offers an extra cubic foot of space which can be quite a bit when trying to pack a road trip into a sedan or coupe. But furthermore, and perhaps more importantly, the 2016 Honda Accord offers an extra 4.5 cu. ft. of space in the cabin for you and your passengers to stretch out and get comfortable in.
If those advantages are enough to convince you that the 2016 Honda Accord is the right vehicle for you, then be sure to schedule a test drive right here on our website and we’ll get you behind the wheel of one as soon as we can.
