Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Ford Fusion Energi than in the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, due to the Ford Fusion Energi's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Ford Fusion Energi will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

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 Toyota Avalon 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 Energi is much higher than that for the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

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

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

Handling
The Ford Fusion Energi has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Ford Fusion Energi has less horsepower than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

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