MAZDA6 vs Honda Accord


Trying to decide between the Mazda6 and the Honda Accord for your next ride around Metairie, Harvey, and New Orleans? You’ve come to the right place! At Paretti Mazda, we want to help you make the right decision on your next car, so we’ve created this comparison. Read on to see how these sedans differ, and then reach out to a member of our team if you’d like to learn more.

MAzda6 Technology

Advanced Tech Comparison

Your weekday commute will be more enjoyable in the Mazda6 with a standard 8-inch infotainment display with available Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ to provide a customized listening experience. The baseline infotainment system in the Honda Accord measures smaller at only seven inches, and it also doesn’t come with a multifunction Commander like the MAZDA CONNECT™ Infotainment System. This helpful feature creates easier control over your desired listening experience to minimize distractions while driving.

To decrease look-away time from the ever-changing freeway, the Mazda6 also has an available Active Driving Display. This advanced system projects essential driving information onto the windshield for a more focused drive. Since this feature isn’t available on the Accord, you’ll have to take your eyes off the road to access equipped safety system alerts and turn-by-turn navigational instructions.

Mazda6 Interior

Premium Interior Comforts

Even when encountering rush hour traffic, you’ll have a comfortable driving experience with available heated and ventilated front seats in the Mazda6 and Honda Accord. On chilly nights, your backseat passengers will stay relaxed, too, with available heated rear seats. Your front passenger will most likely be more comfortable in the Mazda6 since it has the available 6-way power front passenger seat. The Accord only offers an available 4-way power adjustment for your front passenger’s seat.

The Mazda6 also takes sophistication to the next level with a standard leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear selector. If you want these accents available in the Accord, you’ll have to upgrade to a higher trim level. Additionally, Nappa leather-trimmed sport seats are available in the Mazda6 that look as good as they feel. Leather-trimmed seats are available in the Accord, too, but they don’t offer high-quality Nappa leather.

Mazda6 Safety

A More Confident Drive

Enjoy a secure drive in the Mazda6 thanks to the following standard safety systems:

  • Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alert: Warns of vehicles approaching your side blind zones when traveling on the highway or backing out of a tight parking spot
  • Advanced Smart City Brake Support with Day and Night-time Pedestrian Detection: Detects and alerts you to potential frontal collisions and, in certain situations, applies the brakes to avoid impact altogether
  • Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go: Maintains a set following speed and distance between you and the car ahead, stopping, slowing, and accelerating you as traffic requires
  • Lane-keep Assist and Lane Departure Warning System: Alerts you when you may be unintentionally drifting from your lane and, if needed, applies gentle steering corrections to keep you on track

While the Honda Accord offers comparable safety features, Blind Spot Monitoring is not a baseline amenity, so you’ll have to upgrade to a higher trim level to make it available.
