Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Ford Fusion Energi than in the Volkswagen Arteon, 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 Volkswagen Arteon.

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 Volkswagen Arteon. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford Fusion Energi and the Volkswagen Arteon have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Ford Fusion Energi is a little wider than the Volkswagen Arteon, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Ford Fusion Energi takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Arteon.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Fusion Energi is significantly less powerful than the Volkswagen Arteon. 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 Volkswagen Arteon. The Ford Fusion Energi has significantly less cargo room than the Volkswagen Arteon, 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 Volkswagen Arteon.
