2014 Ford Fusion vs. 2014 Acura ILX Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Fusion than the Acura ILX. The Ford Fusion will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Acura ILX.

Convenience
The Ford Fusion will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Acura ILX, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Ford Fusion is somewhat more expensive than the Acura ILX. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Ford Fusion will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Acura ILX.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Fusion is much wider than the Acura ILX, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Ford Fusion, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Acura ILX.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Fusion has a much more powerful engine than the Acura ILX. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Fusion and the Acura ILX. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Ford Fusion will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Acura ILX.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Fusion is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Acura ILX.
