2017 Ford Fusion Energi vs. 2016 Ford Taurus Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Fusion Energi offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Ford Taurus with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Ford Fusion Energi will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Ford Taurus.

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 Energi or the Ford Taurus, 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 Energi and the Ford Taurus have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Fusion Energi is much slimmer than the Ford Taurus, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Ford Fusion Energi, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Taurus.

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

Handling
The Ford Fusion Energi has a smaller turning radius than the Ford Taurus, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Fusion Energi is significantly less powerful than the Ford Taurus. 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 Ford Taurus. The Ford Fusion Energi has significantly less cargo room than the Ford Taurus, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Ford Fusion Energi comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Taurus.
