Comparison Review

Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Fusion than the Honda Civic Si. The Ford Fusion will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic Si.

With the Ford Fusion you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Honda Civic Si, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 Fusion is somewhat more expensive than the Honda Civic Si. 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 Civic Si.

Since the Ford Fusion is much wider than the Honda Civic Si, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Ford Fusion, which is slightly longer than the Honda Civic Si.

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

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

The Ford Fusion has less horsepower than the Honda Civic Si, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Fusion and the Honda Civic Si. The Ford Fusion has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Honda Civic Si.

The Ford Fusion comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Civic Si.
