2015 Audi A4 vs. 2015 Ford Fusion Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Fusion than the Audi A4, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford Fusion will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A4.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A4 as you will with the Ford Fusion, 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 Audi A4 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Ford Fusion, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 Audi A4 is much higher than that for the Ford Fusion.

Dimensions
The Audi A4 is a little narrower than the Ford Fusion, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Audi A4 is slightly shorter than the Ford Fusion, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Audi A4 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Ford Fusion.

Handling
The Audi A4 has about the same turning radius as the Ford Fusion, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Audi A4 has less horsepower than the Ford Fusion, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A4 and the Ford Fusion. The Audi A4 has significantly less cargo room than the Ford Fusion, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Audi A4 than that of the Ford Fusion.
