2017 Ford Fusion vs. 2017 Audi A4 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 Audi A4. 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 Ford Fusion as you will with the Audi A4, 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). Based on MSRP, the Ford Fusion is clearly a better financial choice over the Audi A4. 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 Audi A4.

Dimensions
The Ford Fusion is about the same width as the Audi A4. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Ford Fusion, which is slightly longer than the Audi A4.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Ford Fusion and the Audi A4 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

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

Performance
The Ford Fusion has less horsepower than the Audi A4, 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 Ford Fusion and the Audi A4. The Ford Fusion has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Audi A4.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Fusion is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Audi A4.
