2014 Ford Fusion Energi vs. 2015 Cadillac ATS 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 Energi than the Cadillac ATS. The Ford Fusion Energi will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Cadillac ATS.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Fusion Energi as you will with the Cadillac ATS, 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 Energi is clearly a better financial choice over the Cadillac ATS. 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 Energi carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Cadillac ATS.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Fusion Energi is much wider than the Cadillac ATS, 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 Energi, which is slightly longer than the Cadillac ATS.

Drivetrain
The Ford Fusion Energi has much less torque than the Cadillac ATS, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Fusion Energi is significantly less powerful than the Cadillac ATS. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Fusion Energi and the Cadillac ATS. The Ford Fusion Energi has significantly less cargo room than the Cadillac ATS, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Fusion Energi is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Cadillac ATS.
