Are you trying to choose between the 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid and the 2015 Ford Fusion Hybrid? We understand that it’s a tough choice. Both of these innovative sedans offer awesome fuel economy estimates and a lot of high-tech features that you wouldn’t have even been able to imagine a decade ago. It goes without saying that these are some of the most advanced vehicles on the road right now, but which one will better serve you here in Frankfort and Orland Park, IL?

Efficiency and Performance

The first numbers you’re looking for when you’re shopping for a hybrid are probably the EPA estimates, so let’s get that out of the way. The 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid offers an EPA estimate of 50 mpg city/45 mpg highway/47 mpg combined*, while the 2015 Ford Fusion Hybrid is rated at only 44 mpg city/41 mpg highway/42 mpg combined. That makes the Honda Accord Hybrid the clear winner when it comes to fuel economy.

You might be surprised to know that despite the clearly superior fuel economy numbers from the Honda, it also makes more power. The Honda hybrid system generates 196 hp while the Ford system only makes 188 hp. The Honda Accord Hybrid will go from 0 to 60 mph in only 7.5 seconds, while it will take the Fusion Hybrid a full 8.5 seconds. So the Accord Hybrid is obviously quicker and more efficient than the Fusion Hybrid.

Safety

What about safety? Unfortunately, when you look at the scores from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, with the 2015 Ford Fusion Hybrid, you’ll have to worry about an ‘Acceptable’ score in the small front overlap test. Meanwhile, the 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid is rated with a ‘Good’ score. The results of National Highway Traffic Safety Administration tests are similar. That organization gives the Honda Accord a five-star rating in the overall side crash test, overall side barrier crash test, and rollover safety test. The Fusion Hybrid scored only four stars in the side crash and rollover crash tests.
