The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid and the 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid both deliver remarkable efficiency, refined performance, and the latest high tech features. But they aren’t exactly the same, and that means that you’ll want to consider their advantages before you decide which one to drive home. We’ve done the hard work for you below.

Fuel Economy and Performance

Fuel economy is at the top of your list when you’re shopping this segment. Consider how these models fair in EPA ratings:

  • Ford Fusion Hybrid: The Fusion Hybrid comes up with an EPA estimate of up to 43 mpg city/41 mpg highway/42 combined when paired with front wheel drive and an electronic continuously variable transmission*. The Hybrid Fusion cranks out 188 hp combined with its single electric motor and gas engine.
  • Honda Accord Hybrid: The Accord Hybrid has been rated by the EPA at up to 49 mpg city/47 mpg highway/48 mpg combined with front-wheel drive and an electronic continuously variable transmission*. The Accord Hybrid’s electric motor and gas engine combine for up to 212 hp.


The Ford Fusion can be equipped with some high tech safety systems, but it doesn’t get much of anything standard. The Honda Accord Hybrid comes standard with the Honda Sensing System, which includes sophisticated driver assistance features like:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Lane Departure Prevention
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Automatic Collision Prevention Braking
  • Road Departure Prevention

None of those advanced features are standard in the Fusion Hybrid.

The Honda Accord Hybrid also offers more cargo space, with 13.7 cubic feet of space in the trunk. The Fusion Hybrid has up to 12 cubic feet of space in the trunk.
