Mazda6 vs. Accord: Which Midsize Japanese Sedan Is Right for You?

The Mazda6 and Honda Accord both fare well in our competitive midsize car rankings. Both offer sufficient room for five passengers, as well as desirable driving dynamics, upscale interiors, and terrific safety scores.

The Mazda6 was completely redesigned in 2014 and significantly refreshed in 2016. Since then, it has received a healthy list of updates, including an upgraded cabin with an intuitive infotainment system as standard, along with additional standard active safety features and an available turbocharged engine.

Honda fully redesigned the Accord for the 2018 model year. With the redesign came improved interior materials, two peppy turbocharged engine options, and a full suite of standard advanced driver assistance technologies. The Accord is the winner of U.S. News’ 2019 Best Midsize Car for Families award.
