2015 Ford Fusion vs. 2015 Honda Accord

Ford Fusion

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.

Trim Levels and Prices

Bradley drivers who consider the 2015 Honda Accord Sedan will be required to choose between the following four trim levels:Ford Fusion

  • LX: For a minimum of $22,105, this entry-level Accord can be yours. Using dual-zone climate control, it’s a vehicle that reduces the strain of driving.
  • Sport: For $23,865, you could try the Sport trim, which upgrades to a leather-wrapped steering wheel and an improved driver’s seat.
  • EX: Starting at $25,030, this is what you need to spend to be protected by Honda’s LaneWatch system.
  • EX-L: For a minimum of $28,420 — or a considerably greater $30,495 with a V6 engine — the EX-L scrimps on a few of the features found in the top-end model.
  • Touring: For $33,630, this is the best Honda can offer, with all the features that are available on lower trims being applied to this premium model.  

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:Ford Fusion

  • S: Starting at only $22,010, the S is a standard model with premium technology included, even the coveted Sync with a MyFord voice-activated communications and entertainment system.
  • SE: From $23,545, the SE has ten-way power driver’s seat for a deep, relaxing drive, and enables you to upgrade to the powerful but efficient 2.0L EcoBoost engine.
  • Titanium: Starting at just $30,290, the Touring model boasts advanced comfort and convenience and the cutting-edge Sync with MyFord Touch system.

Power and Efficiency

2015-ford-fusion-2.jpgHonda 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.

Interior

2015-ford-fusion-interior-2.jpgThe 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.

Safety

2015-ford-fusion-safety.jpgBoth 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:

  • AdvanceTrac with RSC: Maintains control while cornering, detecting wheel slip, and correcting over or understeering. Active Curve Control is also included, which senses when you’re heading into a corner too fast.
  • MyKey Technology: To make sure others drive your car safety, this innovative device allows you to preset a different key with its own speed limits to make sure you have total piece of mind when someone else is behind the wheel.
