2015 Ford Fusion vs. 2015 Honda Accord

We Have News for Mid-Missouri Residents Shopping for the 2015 Ford Fusion…

The 2015 Ford Fusion has come to Mid-Missouri, and if you’re looking for your next family car, the Fusion has a decent selection of upgradeable features that could do the trick. Amenities like MyFord Touch and Ford Sync make the Fusion Titanium trim competitive with some better mid-size sedans, though the Titanium is the top trim level. The entry-level S trim is much more basic and lacking in the features. Standard amenities on the Fusion are limited to power accessories, air conditioning, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, and a rearview camera. The Fusion does have a decent fuel economy at 34 highway and 22 city mpg, though.

Mid-Missouri drivers looking for their next car have a decent choice in the Fusion, but we think you can do better than just “decent.” Take a look at the 2015 Honda Accord, which just earned a spot on theCar and Driver 10Best list (for a record 29 times).* The 2015 Accord LX with CVT earns an EPA-estimated 36 highway and 27 city mpg,** setting it well beyond the reach of the Fusion when it comes to fuel efficiency. And then there are the amenities; Honda is redefining the idea of “standard features,” and you can see the new amenities package firsthand on every Accord. Standard amenities include an 8-inch i-MID touchscreen interface, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio, a rearview camera, and more. Ford does offer comparable features, but the Fusion requires multiple upgrades to be on the same level as the Accord LX.
