The 2016 Ford Fusion vs. 2016 Honda Accord

Comparable in price and fuel efficiency, the 2016 Ford Fusion nevertheless leaves the 2016 Honda Accord in the dust when it comes to power, features, and sheer drivability. The Honda Accord is a sensible car that gives you lots of room for passengers and good fuel economy, even with the V-6 engine. But the Ford Fusion gives you all that, and plenty more besides, including Active Parking Assist and two available turbocharged engines, with an optional 1.5L EcoBoost for increased fuel efficiency. When you add to that the Fusion's style, comfort, and performance that can't be beat, and the ability to customize your car to fit your lifestyle, it's clearly superior. Advantage: Ford Fusion

Vehicle Power and Handling

The 2016 Ford Fusion's range of engine options give it access to greater horsepower and torque than the Honda Accord, which also makes the Fusion more efficient at transferring power from the engine to the wheels. That means better performance and more power, without sacrificing fuel efficiency. With the optional 1.5L EcoBoost engine, the Ford Fusion can get up to 37 miles-per-gallon on highway driving, while the Fusion's Hybrid driving options can get that number up into the 40s. Plus, while the standard Honda Accord may have a similar fuel efficiency to the Fusion, the Fusion has an available start-stop feature that shuts off its engine at red lights in order to save fuel, which can add up to big savings in the long run. Advantage: Ford Fusion

Vehicle Design and Features

The 2016 Honda Accord is a sensible car with good fuel efficiency and safety ratings, but when it comes to style it's not necessarily the belle of the ball. Its exterior design is undistinguished, and critics have noted that the dual-screen layout that comes with some of its top-tier trim options can be confusing to work with. The 2016 Ford Fusion, on the other hand, has a front profile that has been compared to the Aston Martin, and trim packages that allow you to customize your Fusion to fit any style. From heated and cooled seats and a heated steering wheel to Active Parking Assist, the Ford Fusion combines top-of-the-line performance with top shelf luxury at every level. Advantage: Ford Fusion
