For all of the functionality you want from a midsize sedan combined with surprisingly sporty driving capabilities and outstanding fuel economy, the 2016 Mazda6 is an excellent choice. Add to that this year’s additions like new LED headlights and a larger seven-inch touchscreen and it’s clear why so many people choose this model for a well-rounded and fun family car. Take a moment to see how it compares to the current 2016 Honda Accord before you check it out in person at Cox Mazda, a quick drive from Tampa at 3101 Cortez Road West in Bradenton, FL.


Lower Price

You don’t have to break the bank to get behind the wheel of the 2016 Mazda6. Starting at an MSRP from just $21,495, the 2016 Mazda6 sedan’s price is lower than many in the midsize sedan segment, including the 2016 Honda Accord, which starts at $22,105.

Standard Performance

If you prioritize performance and agility, the 2016 Mazda6 remains toward the top of the class. Running on a standard 2.5L four-cylinder engine, the 2016 Mazda6 goes from zero to 60 mph in just 7.6 seconds when paired with an automatic transmission. The 2016 Honda Accord’s base engine is a 2.4L four-cylinder that only moves from zero to 60 mph at a slower 7.8 seconds.

Higher Fuel Economy

Also impressive on the 2016 Mazda6 is the gas mileage it’s capable of attaining. An 2016 Mazda6 with a six-speed automatic transmission is able to achieve up to an EPA-40 mpg highway and 28 mpg city when equipped with the i-ELOOP regenerative braking system. Fuel economy for the 2016 Honda Accord, though, doesn’t quite meet the mark, maxing out at an EPA-estimated 37 mpg highway and 27 mpg city with a less engaging continuously variable transmission.

Standard Features

When it comes to features, the 2016 Mazda6 comes generously equipped with some of the most popular equipment available today. Even if you decide to go with the base sport trim, you’ll be offered available features like a navigational aid, an advanced telematics system, a universal garage door opener, a remote start ignition system, cargo area tie downs, and a day/night electrochromatic mirror. None of these features are even available on the 2016 Honda Accord base trim. Additionally, the 2016 Mazda6 comes standard with a front lumbar support system, something that isn’t even offered on the Honda Accord’s base trim.
