The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid vs. the 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid
Drivers looking for a great hybrid sedan around Easton are probably already aware that they can visit Raynham and Silko Honda to check out the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid. While these days there are plenty of hybrid sedans to choose from, there are few that can truly go head to head, toe to toe with the Accord Hybrid.
While few vehicles can hold up to the Accord, that doesn’t mean they don’t try. Let’s see if the 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid is able to compare to Honda’s incredible sedan.
Honda Wins Where it Counts
If you’re looking at a hybrid car like either the Accord or the Fusion, the fact is that you’re looking for one thing before all else: fuel economy. That’s what pushes so many drivers to go to hybrid, and it’s what has pushed so many to choose the Accord over the Fusion.
The 2014 Accord Hybrid gets an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 50 mpg in the city.* If you need to pause for a minute to take that in, it’s okay. Very, very few vehicles are ever able to be this fuel efficient, and that includes the Ford Fusion Hybrid. Ford’s sedan only comes in at 47 mpg on the highway.
Ford Safety Features Come Up Short
There’s a great chance that if you want a midsize hybrid sedan, you’re looking for a new family car, and that means that safety is a prime concern. If you’re at all worried about safety, we recommend the Accord over the Fusion.
The 2014 Accord Hybrid earned five0star ratings from the NHTSA for:
- Front Side Crash Tests
- Overall Side Crash Safety
- Overall Side Barrier Crash Safety
- Rollover Safety
The Ford Fusion only earned four stars on all of these, except for the Front Side Crash Test, where it could only manage a three-star rating.
