The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
6.8
6.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
More tech this year makes the 2021 Honda Accord a compelling buy, but the options can rack up. The 2021 Mazda 6 drives the point home: not every family needs a crossover SUV. The 2021 Nissan Maxima slips into sporty territory with a handsome shape and good road manners, but the CVT saps its verve.
