2015 Ford Taurus vs. 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Taurus offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Honda Accord Hybrid with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Ford Taurus and the Honda Accord Hybrid in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Honda Accord Hybrid you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Ford Taurus, 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). The Ford Taurus is somewhat more expensive than the Honda Accord Hybrid. 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 Taurus will cost more in transportation costs than the Honda Accord Hybrid.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Taurus is much wider than the Honda Accord Hybrid, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Ford Taurus, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Honda Accord Hybrid.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Ford Taurus does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Honda Accord Hybrid.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Taurus has a much more powerful engine than the Honda Accord Hybrid. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Taurus and the Honda Accord Hybrid. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Ford Taurus will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Honda Accord Hybrid.

Warranty
The Ford Taurus comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Accord Hybrid.
