Mazda 6 vs Honda Accord

The Mazda6 or Mazda 6 (known as the Mazda Atenza in China and Japan) is a large family car produced by the Japanese car manufacturer Mazda since 2002, now in its third generation. It replaced the long-serving Mazda 626 (sold in Japan as the Capella) which replaced the Mazda 616 (piston engined version of the RX-2) in 1977. The Mazda6 has sold over one million units worldwide since its introduction, hitting this sales milestone faster than all previous Mazdas.

The Mazda6 was the first example of the company's new Stylish, Insightful, and Spirited design philosophy. The new Mazda 6 is simply stunning ! It offers so much innovation, technical wise and styling wise. It's also a bit faster than the Accord. Nothing beats it's design partly deriving from the famous Furai ! It was even a top safety pick !
North American SKYACTIV-G 2.5-liter gasoline engine models of was set to go on sale in January 2013 as 2014 model year vehicle, followed by SKYACTIV-D engine models in second half of 2013. However the introduction of the diesel variant of Mazda6 to the U.S. market was delayed from the second half of 2013 to spring 2014 due to emission issue. In early 2014, it is reported that the introduction of the diesel engine has been delayed again, effectively cancelling the program for at least this generation of the model. The engine is already available on both the Asian and European models of the third generation Mazda6. Notably, the North American models are no longer offered with a V6 engine putting the model at a disadvantage.

The Honda Accord is a series of automobiles manufactured by Honda since 1976, best known for its four-door sedan variant, which has been one of the best-selling cars in the United States since 1989. In 1982, the Accord became the first car from a Japanese manufacturer to be produced in the United States when production commenced in Marysville, Ohio at Honda's Marysville Auto Plant. The Accord has achieved considerable success, especially in the United States, where it was the best-selling Japanese car for fifteen years (1982–97), topping its class in sales in 1991 and 2001, with around ten million vehicles sold.Numerous road tests, past and present, rate the Accord as one of the world's most reliable vehicles. The Accord has been on the Car and Driver 10Best list a record 29 times.

The ninth-generation Accord offers the following powertrains: A new direct injected "Earth Dreams" 2.4-liter 16-valve DOHC four-cylinder engine rated at 185 hp (138 kW) to 181 lb·ft (245 N·m) of torque paired with either a six-speed manual or continuously variable transmission, an updated 3.5-liter 24-valve SOHC V6 mated either to a six-speed manual or automatic rated at 278 hp (207 kW) and 252 lb·ft (342 N·m), and a hybrid powertrain (named i-MMD) that integrates a 2.0 liter Atkinson Cycle gasoline engine with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack in North America.

 Performance : 0–60 mph: 6.7 sec. / Quarter mile : 14.9 sec. 

In conclusion : 

We differ from the crowd the Accord is significantly faster than the Mazda, we think that the 6 is the better allrounder in the sedan class but it lacks a V6. The car is quick and as practical as the Honda, or even more. But  the 8.6s to 62 is not exactly sport. It's hard to stand against the trend but our choice is also backed up by all the history that Honda wrote with the Accord name, the fans and all the awards to back up the solid first place of
