The 2014 Ford Fusion vs. The 2014 Nissan Altima

At Terry’s Ford in Peotone, we know our customers in the Bradley area looking for a new sedan would love all of the standard features, fuel efficiency, and drivability offered by the 2014 Ford Fusion. However, there are other popular models in this segment that deliver some respectable competition, like the 2014 Nissan Altima. After completing an extensive back-to-back comparison, we've determined that the new Ford Fusion is a better buy than the new Nissan Altima, and here’s why.

Competitive Comparison Highlights

  • Better Safety Features: The available forward collision warning system for the 2014 Ford Fusion can detect when an accident is imminent using a series of sensors mounted on the front bumper. This system will alert you with audio-visual signals to brake or maneuver quickly. It will even add sensitivity to your brakes for faster stopping. The 2014 Nissan Altima does not offer a forward collision warning system.

  • Better Fuel Economy: The standard 1.5L 4-cylinder turbo engine under the hood of the 2014 Ford Fusion delivers an estimated 23 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway. The 2014 Nissan Altima’s standard 3.5L V6 engine gets an estimated 22 mpg in the city and only 31 mpg on the highway. With the Altima, that means you’ll spend less time driving and more time filling up at the pump.

  • Comfortable Handling: Standard front and rear gas-charged shock absorbers in the 2014 Ford Fusion deliver impressive dampening capability over particularly rough road surfaces. In addition, the new Ford Fusion’s drift compensation steering helps you maintain your intended course when road conditions are slippery and traction conditions are less than ideal. The 2014 Nissan Altima does not have gas-charged shocks or drift compensation steering to help drivers along.
