Let's see how the 2015 Honda Accord holds its ground against the Ford Fusion.
These two fierce competitors are often neck in neck, but the 2015 Honda Accord takes the edge when it comes to power. Pop opn the hood and find one of two engines -- a 2.4L I4 with 185 horses or a 3.5L V6 with a massive 278 hp. They're mated to either a 6-speed manual or CVT automatic transmission with paddle shifters, standard on most models and optional on the manual trims. By contrast, the Ford Fusion offers three engines -- a 2.5L I4 with 175 hp, a 1.5L I4 EcoBoost with 181 horses, or a 2.0L EcoBoost I4 with 240 horses. All are mated to a 6-speed automatic, with paddle shifters only available on the 2.0L. When it comes to standard engines -- and even optional ones -- the 2015 Honda Accord wins the powertrain battle!
Though both of these cars are close in price, you'll find many more standard features on the 2015 Honda Accord, including dual-zone automatic climate control, a 6-speaker audio system, Panda capability, and speed-sensitive volume control. None of these goodies are available on the base Ford Fusion, not even as options.
The 2015 Honda Accord will keep you on the road longer than the Ford Fusion, with is 26 city/35 highway mpg with automatic transmission and standard I4. With the same specs, the Ford Fusion falls short of the Accord's numbers, garnering 22/34.
