The two models in this 2018 Mazda6 vs 2018 Honda Accord comparison have both been redesigned for the model year. Each of them bring several new enhancements to the road, but their character is very different. The 2018 Honda Accord is a midsize sedan designed for practical family transportation. While the 2018 Mazda6 can easily fill that need, it also places a priority on driving excellence and luxury which isn’t the focus of the Honda model.

We don’t have exact output numbers for the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine on the 2018 Mazda6. If it maintains its power and torque from the 2017 model year it will offer 184 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque. However, we know that this vehicle has been modified to offer enhanced fuel efficiency and even cylinder deactivation, which should deliver significant advantages when it comes to filling up with fuel or commuting.
