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

Convenience
The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Ford Fusion Hybrid, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Hybrid is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Sonata 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 Hybrid is much higher than that for the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid.

Since the Ford Fusion Hybrid is much wider than the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Ford Fusion Hybrid takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Ford Fusion Hybrid doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid.

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

Performance
The Ford Fusion Hybrid has less horsepower than the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
