2014 Ford Fusion Energi vs. 2015 Volvo S60 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 Volvo S60. The Ford Fusion Energi will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo S60.

Convenience
With the Volvo S60 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Ford Fusion Energi, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Energi will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volvo S60. 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 Volvo S60.

Dimensions
The Ford Fusion Energi is about the same width as the Volvo S60. 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 Volvo S60.

Drivetrain
The Ford Fusion Energi has much less torque than the Volvo S60, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Ford Fusion Energi has about the same turning radius as the Volvo S60, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Fusion Energi is significantly less powerful than the Volvo S60. 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 Volvo S60. The Ford Fusion Energi has significantly less cargo room than the Volvo S60, 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 Volvo S60.
