Comparison Review

Comfort
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 Insight. The Ford Fusion will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Insight.

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 Insight, 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). The Ford Fusion is somewhat more expensive than the Honda Insight. 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 Insight.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Fusion is much wider than the Honda Insight, 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 Insight.

Drivetrain
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 Insight.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Fusion has a much more powerful engine than the Honda Insight. 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 Fusion and the Honda Insight. The Ford Fusion has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Honda Insight.

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