Keeping drivers safe and secure regardless of the trim level selected is a top priority for Mazda, and that’s evidenced by the safety technology offered on the Mazda6.

In addition to the numerous safety features that come standard on the 2017 Mazda6, there are several other amenities you can add to the first model in the Mazda6 lineup. Many of these are unavailable on the 2017 Honda Accord.

Plus, all Mazda6 models boast rain-sensing wipers, yet this feature isn’t standard on the Accord.
