September 7th, 2018 by

2018 Accord

The 2018 Mazda6 may seem like a good pick on the surface, but compared to the 2018 Honda Accord, the Mazda6 lacks fuel efficiency, power, and safety features. To help Culver City drivers make the right choice, we’ve compared the 2018 Honda Accord vs. Mazda6 below! Read on to learn more about what makes the Accord a winner.

Mazda6 vs. Honda Accord: Performance

The new Accord offers greater power and mpg ratings on Torrance roads than the Mazda6:

  • Engine: The 2018 Honda Accord performance begins with a standard 192-hp 1.5L turbo 4-cylinder engine, while the 2018 Mazda6 gets a 187-hp 2.5L 4-cylinder. Torque figures also favor the Accord; it produces 192 lb-ft vs. 186 lb-ft from the Mazda6.
  • Fuel Economy: In addition to being more powerful, the Accord is also more fuel-efficient than the Mazda6. With its base engine and CVT, the Accord LX earns 30 mpg city/38 mpg highway*, while the Mazda6 Sport Auto earns 26 mpg city/35 mpg highway.

Mazda6 vs. Honda Accord: Safety Features

One reason the 2018 Honda Accord comes so highly-praised is because it earned a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA**. The 2018 Mazda6 also earned a 5-star overall safety rating, but it fell behind with a four-star rating in front passenger and rollover crash tests—two areas where the Accord earned five stars. Additionally, the Accord gets standard Honda Sensing, a suite of a driver assists. The Mazda6 comes standard with Smart City Brake Support and Blind Spot Monitoring (optional for the Accord) but lacks some of the features included with Honda Sensing:

  • Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Road Departure Mitigation System
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Traffic Sign Recognition System
