Both sedans are similar in the performance department. When it comes to horsepower for example, the Accord Sedan LX delivers 185 horsepower whereas the Mazda6 engine generate 184 horsepower. The key difference here is how each vehicle puts that power to the road.

The Mazda6 is still using a traditional automatic transmission, which relies on gear changes through 6 speeds to get its power to the road. The Accord LX with its CVT doesn’t have individual speeds. Instead, the transmission continuously adapts to put power efficiently to the road at any speed. This is part of the reason why the Accord Sedan LX is able to achieve better EPA estimated MPG numbers.
