2014 Honda Accord vs. 2014 Ford Fusion

The changes in the 2014 Honda Accord may not be terribly visible to the untrained eye, but they are still as groundbreaking as ever for Honda. The new Accord features upgrades to the LX trim’s upholstery and Honda engineers have added two new hybrid versions to the Accord family; one is a standard hybrid, the other is a plug-in version. Regardless of which type of 2014 Honda Accord a potential owner takes home, they will be getting one of the most fuel-efficient sedans on the road today. It is capability like that makes the battle between the 2014 Honda Accord vs. 2014 Ford Fusion all the more interesting.

Another area where the 2014 Honda Accord vs. the 2014 Ford Fusion comparison is particularly close is in the list of standard equipment features. Both vehicles feature the usual suspects like tilting and telescoping steering, keyless entry and air conditioning. The available trunk space of the 2014 Honda Accord and the 2014 Ford Fusion is almost identical. The difference between the two is less than a half cubic foot.

One of the phases of the battle between the 2014 Honda Accord and the 2014 Ford Fusion where the new Accord starts to pull away with the battle is in the design and layout of the passenger cabin. The materials used by Honda designers are of a surprisingly high quality that leads to a very comfortable cabin for Accord passengers. Even taller drivers and passengers should be able find a comfortable place to sit in the 2014 Accord. Rear seat passengers of the 2014 Ford Fusion that are on the taller end of the spectrum may be pinched by the severe roof rake of the new Fusion sedan.

Safety scores of the 2014 Honda Accord and the 2014 Ford Fusion are pretty close. Both have received perfect five-star ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. What really sets the new Accord apart from the new 2014 Fusion is that it received a higher rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in the fairly new small-overlap crash test. Most cars, in almost every class, have not fared well in this testing situation.
