2017 Honda Accord Hybrid vs 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid
We thought maybe the 2016 model year would see the return of the Accord Hybrid, as the Sedan and Coupe models received a ton of outstanding updates and enhancements. But the news came and went, and there was no mention of a new Honda Accord Hybrid, until a few months later when the 2017 model year started being conversed. Now, we can get excited about the Accord all over again, as the Accord Hybrid returns with all of the same updates and enhancements the Sedan and Coupe received last year, plus plenty of its own upgrades and tweaks concerning the hybrid technology and layout. We wanted to see how it measures up against one of its biggest competitors, by comparing the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid vs 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid.
Advantages of the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid
The hybrid technology upgrades that the all-new Honda Accord Hybrid not only made it even more efficient than its previous iteration, but also more powerful. In fact, it gave it the right to claim best-in-class horsepower, as evidenced in the first row of the table above. The Accord Hybrid delivers 212 horsepower while the Fusion Hybrid only offers 188 HP. While not a huge difference, 24 horses would definitely be noticeable, meaning the Accord Hybrid will provide a more enjoyable driving experience every time you slide behind the wheel.
Despite delivering superior power, the new Accord Hybrid doesn’t sacrifice fuel efficiency to get it. In fact, it utilizes 0.7 litres less fuel ever 100 kilometres than the Ford Fusion Hybrid does both on the highway and through city streets like those here in Edmonton.
