2014 Ford Fusion Energi vs. 2014 Kia Cadenza Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Ford Fusion Energi offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Kia Cadenza. The Kia Cadenza will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Ford Fusion Energi.

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 Kia Cadenza, 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 Energi or the Kia Cadenza, 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 Kia Cadenza have similar Destination Charges.

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

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

Handling
The Ford Fusion Energi has a larger turning radius than the Kia Cadenza, 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 Kia Cadenza. 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 Kia Cadenza. The Ford Fusion Energi has significantly less cargo room than the Kia Cadenza, 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 Kia Cadenza.
