Body

The 2016 Ford Fusion definitely stands out from the crowd. Showing a wide stance body, broad grille, and narrowed headlights and making a lasting impression.


The 2016 Honda Accord shows more of a traditional look to its predecessors. The softened appearance of the Accord displays rounded corners and gentle lines.

 

Engine

Upper engine Fusion models are turbocharged and deliver high power from a smaller liter size. This improves efficiency and power. These models show the vehicle's exciting, fun-to-drive manner.


The Accord does also offer an upper 3.6-liter V6 engine which provides additional power.

 

Transmission

All Fusion models are standard with a six-speed automatic transmission.


Those seeking an Accord can pick from a six-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission.

 

Steering

With responsive electric power, the Fusion can maneuver through curves and corners with extreme ease.


The Accord does offer composed handling, however, this does not feel as engaging or dynamic as the Fusion's steering.


Interior

The Fusion provides for a modern and bold vibe through carefully selected elements. Ambient lighting from the cabin foot walls allow for a cool, futuristic glow. The soft-touch fabrics provide a comforting feel.


The interior on the Accord is polished and satisfying. Though the Accord provides high-grade materials to comprise the interior, it's missing a certain edgy style that can be seen in the Fusion.
