2014 Mazda6 vs 2013 Honda Accord

The 2014 Mazda6 wasn’t just built for looks, it was designed with a philosophy to move even better on the road. Known as the KODO or “soul of motion” language, Mazda’s design philosophy shows its dedication to a balance of aerodynamics, power, sleekness and innovation. Every line and curve on the Mazda6 was created for a bigger purpose, which is to perform better and more efficiently. The vehicle’s impeccable styling contributes to its class-leading low drag coefficient, which allows it to fly through the air with nearly zero resistance.

Inside the sleek cabin is luxe leather-trimmed upholstery and available heated sport seats. With the ability to fit exactly to the passengers’ bodies, the seats make each moment in the Mazda6 customizable and comfortable. Also available is the Bose Centerpoint Surround Sound System with AudioPilot noise compensation technology, Mazda-integrated TomTom Navigation, and available connectivity for HD Radio, Pandora Internet Radio, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio. Drivers can also take advantage of the all-new available Commander Switch, which gives the driver access to all of the above plus Bluetooth phone connectivity.

What really sets the Mazda6 apart from its competition is its all-new i-ELOOP regenerative braking technology. The system stores the kinetic energy lost during braking and transfers it to a capacitor. This is where the energy gets dispersed and recycled into different parts of the vehicle that require extra energy. This ultimately improves the overall fuel economy and saves the engine from excess stress. That paired with SKYACTIV Technology results in a more efficient, waste-free drive.

The Mazda6 is built with the SKYACTIV-Body and -Chassis, both of which were made to provide ultimate protection on the road. The use of “Triple H” construction, high-strength steel reinforcements, side-impact door beams and reinforced spot welds, the Mazda6 is stronger without gaining any added weight. This vehicle not only looks better than ever before, it also performs like a dream and offers everything you could want from a sports sedan without breaking the bank. Is there really even a doubt in the competition between the 2014 Mazda6 vs 2013 Honda Accord?
