Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Ford Fusion than in the Honda Accord Hybrid, 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 Hybrid.

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 Hybrid, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 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 Destination Charge for the Ford Fusion is much higher than that for the Honda Accord Hybrid.

Since the Ford Fusion is much wider than the Honda Accord Hybrid, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Ford Fusion is slightly shorter than the Honda Accord Hybrid, which may make it easier to park.

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

When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Fusion is somewhat more powerful than the Honda Accord Hybrid.

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

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Fusion and the Honda Accord Hybrid. The Ford Fusion has less cargo capacity than the Honda Accord Hybrid, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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