2014 BMW 320 vs. 2014 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 BMW 320, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW 320, drivers may find the Ford Fusion a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 320 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 BMW 320 is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Fusion. 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 BMW 320 is much higher than that for the Ford Fusion.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 320 is much slimmer than the Ford Fusion, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW 320, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Fusion.

Drivetrain
The BMW 320 has much less torque than the Ford Fusion, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW 320 has about the same turning radius as the Ford Fusion, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 320 is significantly less powerful than the Ford Fusion. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 320 and the Ford Fusion. The BMW 320 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 BMW 320 than that of the Ford Fusion.
