If you’re wavering between the 2018 Mazda6 and the 2018 Accord, let us help you decide. By comparing the two models and breaking down the pros and cons, you’ll not only get better acquainted with the Mazda6 and the Accord, you’ll also hopefully be one step closer to making your decision.

An Eccentric, Inspiring Name Origin

The Mazda name is a tribute to the Iranian-Zoroastrian God of wisdom, Ahura Mazda.

2018 Mazda6 versus 2018 Honda Accord: Exterior Comparison

 When it comes to the exterior of vehicles, some people pay attention to color. Others, however, focus primarily on style. Even though we’re taught not to judge a book by its cover, in the car-search world, this isn’t necessarily the case. Automobiles are a work of art – both inside and out. However, as we all know, the appeal of art is that it touches each person in a different way. Therefore, even though we believe the Mazda6 has a more defined, sophisticated look, that’s simply up to you to decide. 

The Beginning of an Era

The Mazda was first introduced to the United States in 1970 with the midsize Mazda6 debuting in 2002.

2018 Mazda6 versus 2018 Honda Accord: Interior Comparison

 For those more concerned about the interior, we’ve got good news for both models. For one, the Honda Accord received a complete redesign in 2018, bringing with it numerous luxury features such as heated front seats and a sunroof. Although the Mazda6 wasn’t completely redesigned in 2018 like the Accord, it still received several updates to the interior. For instance, the Mazda6 gained a new, more efficient dashboard design as well as higher-quality cabin materials. On top of this, the cabin of the Mazda6 is now quieter and the large touchscreen isn’t bad either. 


         Now in it’s third generation, the Mazda6 continues to be praised for its design, style, and popularity.
