2021 MAZDA6 vs. 2022 Honda Accord: Stylish Sedan Showdown

2021 MAZDA6 vs. 2022 Honda Accord

When you want a four-door sedan that gives you something more than others out there, you’re undoubtedly considering the new Mazda6 sedan. But if you’re still early in your new car research, you might be wondering how the Mazda6 sedan compares to other cars in its class — for example, how the Mazda6 vs. Honda Accord compare.

If you’re deciding between the Mazda6 or Honda Accord, let’s compare differences in price, reliability, passenger room, trunk space, features, and more. After you see how our MAZDA vs. Honda sedan comparison finds a clear winner, you’ll be calling our dealership to schedule a test drive in the new Mazda6 sedan for sale.

2021 MAZDA6 vs. 2022 Honda Accord Price and Trim Models

The 2021 Mazda6 has a lower starting price than the Honda Accord and is available in six trim models to shop and compare. This immediately puts the Mazda6 ahead of the Honda Accord because the Mazda6 is less expensive than the new Accord. Also, the Honda Accord is only available in five trim models, which means it costs more than the new Mazda6 and gives you fewer trims.

Let’s compare Honda Accord to Mazda6 features and decide which vehicle gives you more for your money. The Mazda6 Sport and Honda Accord LX each come standard with Apple CarPlay®/Android Auto™ integration, LED headlights, and advanced safety systems, but the Honda Accord does not come with Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. The Mazda6 does.

The Mazda6 Touring adds leatherette-trimmed sport seats, a six-way power driver’s seat with manual lumbar support, and a power moonroof to the list of standard features. If you want a moonroof in your Honda Accord Sport, you’ll need to upgrade to an entirely different powertrain.

Tired of the mess of cables and wires? Then you’ll enjoy the wireless Apple CarPlay® connection for your compatible device in the new Mazda6 Grand Touring. Once again, if you want this feature in your Honda Accord, you’ll need to upgrade to the 2.0T model.

The Mazda6 Grand Touring Reserve brings the comfort and convenience of an eight-way power driver’s seat with power lumbar support and a six-way power front passenger’s seat that are both ventilated. You won’t find ventilated front seats on any of the new Honda Accord sedans for sale.
