The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Mazda 6 is a beauty, with refined, perky powertrains and a driving experience that mostly delivers on what the exterior suggests. The 2013 Honda Accord is one of America's best, most sensible sedans, even if it hasn't changed radically.
