Bradley drivers trust Terry’s Ford of Peotone to bring them the best cars on the market, with a great example being the brand new 2015 Ford Fusion. This vehicle focuses on what sedan drivers need: spacious interiors, efficient engines, and a higher degree of protection. However, some customers have asked how it compares to the 2015 Honda Accord Sedan, so we decided to match them up to see which vehicle comes out on top.
Bradley drivers who consider the 2015 Honda Accord Sedan will be required to choose between the following four trim levels:
Peotone drivers who consider the 2015 Ford fusion will get to choose from three trims, but they’re far better balanced than those given for the Accord, distributing amenities evenly as the car is upgraded:
Honda offers two widely divergent engines for the Accord, making selection somewhat tricky. All but Touring trims come with an inline four-cylinder as standard. Providing 185 hp — or 189 in the Sport model — this is a capable engine that gets a combined mileage rating of 27 mpg with six-speed manual. Pay extra for CVT, and that goes to a maximum of 31 mpg.
The Touring model gets a standard V6, providing an excessive amount of power for a car this size, and turning the Accord in a gas-guzzler, with a combined mileage rating of 25 mpg, even with an expensive automatic transmission.
Ford also provides two engine choices, but takes the needs of sedan drivers into account more than Honda. A 2.5L Duratec is standard on the S and SE, and supplies a steady 175 hp with up to 34 mpg highway.
There’s also a 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 engine, which comes standard on the Titanium and is available for the SE. If you want an extra bit of punch, this is a great way to get it, with a superior mileage rating — up to 26 mpg combined — than the Accord’s cacophonous V6.
The 2015 Honda Accord Sedan has been jammed with several interesting features, such as an SMS function that reads your texts messages aloud. However, this is the kind of thing that is nice to have, but not something that really changes the on-road experience for Bradley.
The 2015 Ford Fusion won’t read your texts out for you, but it will make each ride feel relaxed and open. Peotone drivers will have more legroom, headroom, and shoulder room in the Fusion than they would in the Accord. That’s something you’ll appreciate every single time you take the car for a spin, especially when you’re using it regularly.
The expansive interior doesn’t mean that storage capacity is compromised, though. There’s even more trunk space in the Fusion than there is in the Accord, so there’s no need to worry about getting everything in.
Both vehicles make use of basic safety equipment — such as anti-lock brakes, brake assist, and dual front air bags — to protect you and your passengers. However, Ford has always put safety first, so the Fusion is equipped with cutting-edge safety enhancing technology suchas:
The 2015 Ford Fusion is everything you need from a sedan: powerful without sacrificing fuel economy, with an expansive interior that prioritizes the right technology. We’re convinced that Bradley drivers will prefer it over the 2015 Honda Accord Sedan. For more information, contact Terry’s Ford of Peotone today!
