Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Fusion as you will with the Honda Accord, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Fusion will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda Accord. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Ford Fusion is much higher than that for the Honda Accord.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Fusion is much wider than the Honda Accord, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Ford Fusion takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Honda Accord.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Ford Fusion doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Honda Accord.

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

Performance
The Ford Fusion has less horsepower than the Honda Accord, 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 and the Honda Accord. The Ford Fusion has less cargo capacity than the Honda Accord, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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