The Honda Accord Hybrid and the Ford Fusion Hybrid, two of the most fuel-efficient sedans, are back in Miami, Hialeah, and Doral, and we know you’re excited to check them out. But which one should you choose?
To make your car buying decision easier, Braman Honda Miami has compared the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid and the Ford Fusion Hybrid in the guide below.
Comparing Fuel Economy
As a top hybrid sedan, the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid produces incredible performance and fuel efficiency. It’s powered by a hybrid powertrain that includes a 2.0L i-VTEC Atkinson cycle engine and an industry-first two-motor hybrid system. This powertrain plus the sedan’s Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission with Sport Mode and Eco Assist System™ helps the Accord Hybrid achieve an EPA-estimated 48 combined mpg.*
This hybrid powertrain isn’t just about efficiency, though. The engine and the two motors can also generate an impressive 212 horsepower.
The Ford Fusion Hybrid is also powered by a hybrid powertrain and an advanced transmission system. However, it only uses one electric motor. So compared to the Honda Accord Hybrid, the Ford Fusion Hybrid offers less fuel efficiency. Overall, it’s only capable of producing an EPA-estimated 42 combined mpg. On top of that, this vehicle only gets 188 horsepower.
Features for Comfort and Convenience
The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid and Ford Fusion Hybrid are known for more than just their fuel economy, though. They’re also getting attention for their features and technologies.
In the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid, you’ll find everything from a Bluetooth® system to an automatic dual-zone climate control system for your convenience and overall comfort. The vehicle also comes with an infotainment system with an available navigation system as well as multiple entertainment options.
Best of all, the infotainment system features Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. These technologies integrate your smartphone to the system for calling and texting capabilities and access to mobile apps.
The Fusion Hybrid includes most of the same comfort and convenience features offered in the Honda Accord Hybrid. However, the infotainment system in Fusion Hybrid doesn’t have smartphone integration technologies like Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.
Peace of Mind and Safety
With enhancements and various safety technologies, these fuel-efficient sedans are sure to give you some peace of mind during your travels. Both sedans have available driver assist technologies that can help to reduce your chances of getting into an accident or reduce a crash impact.
Some of these technologies include:
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Lane Keeping Assist System
- Forward Collision Warning and Braking
On top of that, the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid includes Honda LaneWatch™, an advanced blind spot monitoring system. With this, you’ll get a live look at your right side blind spot when you need to switch lanes.
The Ford Fusion Hybrid offers a blind spot monitoring system, but it doesn’t provide a live image of your surroundings.
