Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Fusion Energi offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Kia Cadenza. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Ford Fusion Energi and the Kia Cadenza in the front seats.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Fusion Energi will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Kia Cadenza. 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 Energi is much higher than that for the Kia Cadenza.

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

Drivetrain
The Ford Fusion Energi has much less torque than the Kia Cadenza, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Ford Fusion Energi has about the same turning radius as the Kia Cadenza, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Fusion Energi is significantly less powerful than the Kia Cadenza. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Fusion Energi and the Kia Cadenza. The Ford Fusion Energi has significantly less cargo room than the Kia Cadenza, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Fusion Energi is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Cadenza.
