Let's take a peek at how the 2016 Ford Fusion competes against the Honda Accord.
When you have two capable rivals going to head to head in the mid-size sedan category, you can bet it's going to be a tight race, but the 2016 Ford Fusion pulls out ahead of the Honda Accord easily with its three engine options. (Both the Fusion and Accord are available as hybrids, but we'll stick to the strictly gas models here.) Raise the hood of the Fusion and you'll find either a 2.5L Inline 4 producing 175 horsepower, a 1.5L EcoBoost Inline 4 with 181 horses, or a 2.0 EcoBoost Inline 4 boasting 240 horses of power, all betrothed to a smooth shifting six-speed automatic. The 2.0L EcoBoost I4 engine adds paddle shifters and the availability of an optional AWD drivetrain. By contrast, only two engines are offered in the Accord -- a 185 horsepower 2.4L Inline 4 or a 278 horsepower,3.5L V6, paired with either a CVT transmission or six speed manual or automatic. But unlike Fusion, no AWD is offered at all. Fierce competitors, yes, but with the AWD option and more engine choices, the 2016 Fusion takes the lead.
Of course, the chances of these beautiful sedans breaking down is scarce, but wouldn't you rather have peace of mind for your family since you can't control everything? You'll get it in the 2016 Ford Fusion, which, like the Accord, features a 3-year/36,000 basic warranty, but also provides you with a generous 5-year/60,000 miles Roadside Assistance program. In the Accord, you'll have to Google the nearest towing company after 36 months because its Roadside Assistance ceases after 3-years/36,000 miles!
If you're tall or just like to stretch your legs so they won't cramp, you're better off in a 2016 Ford Fusion than a Honda Accord! With a generous 44.3 inches of front legroom in the Ford Fusion vs. the 42.5 inches you get in the front of the Accord, an inch of extra space can really be appreciated on long road trips. You'll also enjoy more back seat headroom in the 2016 Ford Fusion with 37.8 inches vs. the 37.5 inches you get in the Accord.View Inventory
