Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Fusion Hybrid as you will with the Honda Accord, 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 Hybrid or the Honda Accord, 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 Hybrid is much higher than that for the Honda Accord.

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

Handling
The Ford Fusion Hybrid has about the same turning radius as the Honda Accord, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

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

Powertrain
The Ford Fusion Hybrid has much less torque than the Honda Accord, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Warranty
The Ford Fusion Hybrid comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Accord.
