Should You Drive a 2014 Honda Accord or Mazda6?

The 2014 Honda Accord has been a mainstay of the compact sedan segment for years, regularly offering class-leading figures in performance, efficiency, and 2014 Honda Accordavailable features. These days, the segment is more crowded than ever, with competitors from every manufacturer taking on the behemoth that is Honda. We at Community Honda are obviously pretty biased when it comes to the Accord’s superiority, but we have seen an up-and-coming competitor put out some considerable heat in the 2014 Mazda6. While both vehicles are pretty comparable when it comes to fuel economy, power output, and even price, there is one area of the auto market that Honda has been redefining for the past few years: features.

Setting a New Standard for “Standard”

One look at our new vehicle inventory, and we think you’ll see something stand out that you don’t typically see in a modern auto lineup. While Honda vehicles have always been affordable and practical, the last couple of model years has them taking the role as some of the best-equipped vehicles in their class, and that includes the Accord.

In every Accord from the LX trim all the way up to the top-of-the-line are the following features:

  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio connectivity
  • Honda’s i-MID infotainment system with touchscreen interface
  • Built-in rearview camera with guidelines
  • Expanded-view driver’s mirror
  • Steering wheel-mounted controls for cruise and technology
  • Pandora internet radio and SMS texting capabilities

Now, most modern automakers make features like these available, and that includes Mazda, but in order to put the 2014 Mazda6 on par with the entry-level Accord’s standard features, you would have to upgrade. Honda gives drivers what they want from the start without any need to upgrade.

A Sense of Class

While the Mazda brand certainly has a penchant for style and flair, the 2014 Accord embraces many of the design elements of popular luxury cars, giving it a sense of class that you don’t tend to find in the mid-size sedan market these days.
