2016 Honda Accord vs 2016 Ford Fusion
While almost everyone has heard of the Honda Civic – considering the fact that it has been the best-selling passenger car in Canada for the past seventeen years – the Honda Accord is probably the brand’s second most popular vehicle, constantly making the top ten best-selling cars list not far behind the Civic. One vehicle that has been challenging its place in the top ten comes from the Ford brand, so we thought we’d pit the two vehicles against each other to see what the differences between them are, and which vehicle had more advantages. With that in mind, we went ahead and compared the 2016 Honda Accord vs 2016 Ford Fusion.
Advantages of the 2016 Honda Accord
As you can see by taking a look at the table above, the two vehicles are quite similar – but the 2016 Honda Accord takes the cake in every field we looked at. We’ll start with the top of the table, where we first took a look at the two vehicles’ fuel efficiency ratings and came to the conclusion that the Accord utilizes a full litre less fuel per 100 kilometres driven. One litre is a pretty sizeable advantage, meaning that Honda’s midsize sedan can save you quite a bit of money at the gas pump over time.
Generally with better fuel efficiency comes a disadvantage in power, but the Honda Accord holds fast deliver an extra 10 horsepower as well. Those extra horses are stretched even further by the fact that the Honda Accord also weighs nearly 200 lbs. less than the Ford Fusion, making it more nimble and easier to get up and go. The final area we looked at was passenger volume, and even though it isn’t a huge difference, the Accord still took the nod by offering 0.2 cu. ft. more space than the Ford Fusion.
