2014 BMW 328d 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 BMW 328d, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW 328d, drivers may find the Ford Fusion Energi a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the BMW 328d you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Fusion Energi, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.
