2015 Ford Fusion Hybrid vs. 2015 Volkswagen Passat Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Ford Fusion Hybrid than in the Volkswagen Passat, due to the Ford Fusion Hybrid's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Ford Fusion Hybrid will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Passat.

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 Hybrid or the Volkswagen Passat, 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 Hybrid and the Volkswagen Passat have similar Destination Charges.

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

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

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

Performance
The Ford Fusion Hybrid has less horsepower than the Volkswagen Passat, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

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