2016 Honda Accord vs. 2016 Ford Fusion
The 2016 Honda Accord is a superb contemporary mid-sized sedan manufactured with the legacy-minded ingenuity of Honda’s finest engineers and craftsmen. With significant fuel economy and terrific powertrain endurance, the all-new 2016 Accord is a leader in its class, and drivers near Raynham and Plymouth can come see it now at Silko Honda. For those who may still be on the fence, we’ve put the 2016 Accord to the test against one of its rivals, the 2016 Ford Fusion, in a spec-by-spec and feature-by-feature comparison contest. Read on to see how it stacks up, then stop by Silko Honda to get behind the wheel yourself.
Both the 2016 Honda Accord and the 2016 Ford Fusion have an abundance of raw horsepower under the hood to justify their respective price points, but the Fusion ultimately pales in comparison:
- 2016 Honda Accord: The 2016 Honda Accord features three available powertrains tailored for specific groupings of its six trim tiers. The base engine is a 2.4L inline-four capable of generating up to 185 hp and 181 lb.-ft. of torque, and is available in the base model LX as well as the EX and EX-L. The Sport trim of the Accord features the same 2.4L engine, only with the added bonus of dual exhaust ports that produce 189 hp and 182 lb.-ft. of torque. The 3.5L V6 is the top-rated Accord engine, and earns a riveting 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque.
- 2016 Ford Fusion: The 2016 Fusion also comes with three powertrain options, but even its most powerful engine, a turbocharged 2.0L inline-4, can only produce 240 hp and 270 lb.-ft. of torque when properly equipped.
This year’s edition of the Accord and Fusion both feature an abundance of available trim models, each priced to give buyers the most for their hard-earned dollar:
- 2016 Honda Accord: The 2016 Accord comes in six available trim models, starting with the LX base trim priced at $22,205 MSRP* to the Accord’s top-of-the-line Touring outfit priced at $34,680 MSRP*.
- 2016 Ford Fusion: The 2016 Fusion offers eight available trim options, priced at a low-point of $20,685 MSRP for the Fusion S and a high-point of $34,605 MSRP for the Fusion Energi Titanium.
However, given the comparative powertrain estimates between the Accord and Fusion, the 2016 Accord comes out ahead by virtue of its performance capabilities that manage to eclipse that of the Fusion, even in spite of its size.
Honda’s engineers have gone all out to ensure that its interior design and features set the bar for its competition:
- 2016 Honda Accord: The Accord interior dimensions measure out to a rear headroom estimate of 37.5 inches, a legroom estimate of 38.5 inches, and a shoulder room estimate of 72.8 inches. Available leather-trimmed seating and an immaculately stylish interior dashboard design combine to create an uncontested aura of distinction and capability while seated at the wheel of the all-new Accord. With an 8-inch display screen enabling you to navigate the Accord’s prodigious amount of radio entertainment and streaming services such as Pandora, SiriusXm radio, as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, you’ll never find yourself bored on the inside of the 2016 Honda Accord.
- 2016 Ford Fusion: The 2016 Fusion offers an estimated 37.8 inches of headroom, 38.3 inches of legroom, as well as 56.9 inches of Shoulder room. The Fusion offers a number of choice safety features, such as Active Park Assist and an available Lane-Keeping System, but not much in the way of entertainment options besides optional SiriusXM radio capabilities.
