2018 Ford Fusion vs. 2018 Honda Accord Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Ford Fusion than in the Honda Accord, due to the Ford Fusion's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Ford Fusion will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Accord.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Fusion as you will with the Honda Accord, 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). Whether you pick the Ford Fusion or the Honda Accord, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford Fusion and the Honda Accord have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Ford Fusion is about the same width as the Honda Accord. When looking at overall length, the Ford Fusion takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Honda Accord.

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 Honda Accord.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Fusion is somewhat more powerful than the Honda Accord.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Fusion and the Honda Accord. The Ford Fusion has less cargo capacity than the Honda Accord, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Ford Fusion comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Accord.
