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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Fusion as you will with the Toyota Corolla Hybrid, 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 Toyota Corolla 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 Toyota Corolla Hybrid.

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