Vehicle Comparison Rundown

The Ford Fusion and the Honda Accord are both midsize four-door sedans. The Fusion is available with either standard front-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive. The Accord comes with front-wheel drive only. 

The Ford Fusion’s standard engine has 175 horsepower, but the Honda Accord beats it for standard power with 192 horsepower. When it comes to optional engines, the Fusion comes out on top with a maximum of 325 horsepower, compared to the Accord’s top-rated 252-horsepower engine. That’s a large difference. 

If you’d like your midsize sedan to be a greener choice, the Ford Fusion gives you two options, with both hybrid and plug-in hybrid models. The Honda Accord also offers you a hybrid model.

Overall, the Ford Fusion gives you the option for a lot more horsepower, the choice of all-wheel drive, and even a plug-in hybrid model that can run in pure electric mode. But the Honda Accord is built on a brand-new platform, while the Fusion hasn’t been updated since 2013. 

And the Accord has been optimized for the best fuel economy, and offers the latest driver assistance technologies. Consider all these factors as you compare.
