2015 Ford Fusion vs. 2015 Honda Accord

News for Eastern Kentucky, Southern Ohio, and West Virginia Residents Search for a 2015 Ford Fusion…

The 2015 Ford Fusion has come to the streets of Eastern Kentucky, Southern Ohio, and West Virginia, and if you’re searching for your next family sedan, the Fusion has a decent selection of upgradeable options that could make it the car you need. Features like MyFord Touch and Ford Sync make the Fusion’s high-end Titanium trim competitive with better mid-size sedans, but the entry-level S trim is more basic, lacking most modern features. Standard amenities on Ford’s new Fusion are limited to air conditioning, power accessories, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, and a rearview camera. Ford’s sedan does have a fuel economy at 34 highway and 22 city mpg, at least.

Tri-State drivers shopping for their next car have an okay choice in the Fusion, but we think you should expect to do better than “decent.” Did you know that the 2015 Honda Accord just earned a space on the Car and Driver 10Best list for a record 29th time?* And the 2015 Accord LX with CVT has an EPA-estimated 36 highway and 27 city mpg,** setting it out of reach of the Ford Fusion on fuel economy. And finally, we have the amenities; Honda gives drivers a new package of high-tech features without any need to upgrade, including an 8-inch i-MID touchscreen interface, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink for phone and audio, a rearview camera, and more. You could upgrade the Fusion to be on par with the Accord, but it would require one or two trim/package upgrades.

Take a look at how these sedans compare side-by-side before you take a test drive of the 2015 Accord at a Tri-State Honda Dealer near you.
