Then, feel free to start exploring our beautiful inventory of the illustrious 2020 Ford Fusion.

Engine Options and Fuel Economy

The standard gasoline engine configuration is very similar in both the Ford Fusion and the Honda Accord. Both are equipped with a comparable 1.5-liter turbocharged engine that churns out just under 200-horsepower. However, the Honda Accord features a continuously variable transmission (CVT), which is not the preferred option by many drivers who want sporty shifts that put them in control. The Ford Fusion features a standard six-speed automatic transmission, which many California drivers like, especially in city situations. It's also worth noting that both the Honda Accord and the Ford Fusion feature a hybrid option, but Ford takes it a step further by offering a plug-in hybrid model. This model offers a combined 33-miles-per-kilowatt and also features an all-electric range of 26-miles.


Interior Space and Storage

On the inside, the Ford Fusion and the Honda Accord are similar in size and shape. You'll find a comparable rear legroom measurement, and both feature just over 16-cubic-feet of cargo space, which is generous for a small sedan. However, upon further inspection, the Ford Fusion offers extra inches in terms of front legroom, rear headroom, and rear shoulder room. This means more space for your backseat passengers to enjoy.
The body of the 2020 Ford Fusion as a whole is smaller than that of the Honda Accord. A few inches have been shaved off in length and width, making this model just that much easier to slide into a tight parking spot downtown or parallel parking spot in your neighborhood. These perks may seem insignificant at first, but they make all the difference in your day to day driving life.

Technology and Safety Features

Neither sedan features an extensive standard suite of technology features, however, a simple package add-on for the Ford Fusion, and you can have everything you've ever wanted at one flat-rate price. For example, when you opt for SYNC® 3, you'll get two 4.2-inch LCDs in your instrument cluster, an eight-inch touchscreen at your center console, two temperature zones, and more. The Honda Accord means numerous upgrades to get the full suite. Find exciting active safety features in the Ford Fusion with the Ford Co-Pilot360™ suite of driver's assistance features. This includes options like blind-spot assistance, a backup camera, and other collision mitigation systems. You'll find a comparable system in the Honda Accord, but there's nothing like the reliability of a Ford.
