2017 Ford Fusion vs. 2016 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class 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 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class. The Ford Fusion will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Fusion as you will with the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Fusion will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class. 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 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Fusion is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Ford Fusion transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.

Handling
The Ford Fusion has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Fusion is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Fusion and the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class. The Ford Fusion has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Fusion is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.
