2019 Honda Accord vs. 2019 Mazda6
The conventional wisdom around the automotive press is that while people have been focusing on crossover SUVs, few other segments have improved as vastly, as quickly as midsize sedans. Within the new vehicle inventory at Meridian Honda, that means the Honda Accord. For yet another model year, the Accord is in the enviable position of being one of its class’ strongest models. A comparison of the 2019 Honda Accord vs. 2019 Mazda6 will reveal several important distinctions between the two models. Meridian Honda customers will have a lot of options to consider for the 2019 Accord. The midsize Honda sedan is available in five trim grades, LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, Touring.

At the most basic level, there are only a few similarities between the 2019 Honda Accord and 2019 Mazda6. Both sedans have four doors and space for up to five passengers, but that is about where the similarities end. Rear legroom is an important metric that can be the difference in buyers choosing one model over the other. Customers choosing the 2019 Honda Accord will be able to offer their rear passengers more space to stretch their legs. Depending on the needs of the driver and front passenger, the 2019 Honda Accord can make up to 40.4 inches available. The 2019 Mazda6 comes up short in that same area. Additionally, Mazda has only recently introduced smartphone integration. Honda has made compatibility with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ available (above the base LX trim) for a long time.

The 2019 Honda Accord makes a pair of power plants available, depending on which version a customer chooses to take home from the showroom. Honda has made a turbocharged, 1.5-liter, four-cylinder engine attached to a continuously variable transmission standard equipment across all five primary trim grades. The Sport trim can also be equipped with a six-speed manual transmission. All of these models will make 192 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque. For more power, the Sport, EX-L and Touring models can employ a turbocharged, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine. It will produce 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. Mazda offers the same base engine for the 2019 Mazda6, some are naturally-aspirated and others are turbocharged. Even when the Mazda powertrain is equipped for maximum performance, it won’t match the output produced by the engines available with the 2019 Honda Accord.
