2014 Acura TL vs. 2014 Ford Fusion Energi Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Fusion Energi than the Acura TL, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford Fusion Energi will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Acura TL.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura TL as you will with the Ford Fusion Energi, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Acura TL is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Fusion Energi. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Acura TL is much higher than that for the Ford Fusion Energi.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Acura TL does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Ford Fusion Energi.

Handling
The Acura TL has a larger turning radius than the Ford Fusion Energi, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
