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

Convenience
With the Ford Fusion Hybrid you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Subaru WRX, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 Subaru WRX. 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 Subaru WRX.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Fusion Hybrid is much wider than the Subaru WRX, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Ford Fusion Hybrid, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Subaru WRX.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Fusion Hybrid is significantly less powerful than the Subaru WRX. 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 Hybrid and the Subaru WRX. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Ford Fusion Hybrid as you will in the Subaru WRX.
