The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Mazda6 is a little more enjoyable to drive than other mid-size sedans, and its roomy, comfortable interior is another advantage, but it's behind the curve in occupant safety and tech features. The 2013 Honda Accord is one of America's best, most sensible sedans, even if it hasn't changed radically.
