Apart from the fact that the Accord has strived for a considerably long time in the industry, it has also maintained its legacy and market share consistently.

That said, there are some other well known sedans that compete in this space with just as much enthusiasm, and the Mazda6 is one of them.

Both the vehicles offer another engine option but even, in that case, the Accord dominates the competition with a 252 horsepower power output with the other 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine compared to the 220 horsepower power output put out by the turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine option.
