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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Fusion as you will with the Hyundai Sonata, 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). Whether you pick the Ford Fusion or the Hyundai Sonata, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Hyundai Sonata.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Fusion is much wider than the Hyundai Sonata, 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 Hyundai Sonata.

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

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

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Ford Fusion and the Hyundai Sonata.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Fusion and the Hyundai Sonata. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Ford Fusion as you will in the Hyundai Sonata.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Fusion is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Sonata.
