2019 Ford Fusion vs Honda Accord
If you’re looking for modern creature comforts and fun-loving performance, the 2019 Ford Fusion and Honda Accord are bound to be high on your wishlist. But which is the best sedan for you? Check out our comparison guide to learn more.
Smoothest, Comfiest Ride: 2019 Ford Fusion
This competition was the closest because both sedans were meant for smooth, quiet cruising. The Fusion takes the lead, however, because it does a better job of keeping highway noise outside the cabin, which, of course, makes for a nicer road trip.
Still, both the 2019 Fusion and Accord offer easy access to the cabin and cushy, supportive seats. We’re also fans of these sedans’ options, which include snazzy leather upholstery and heated-and-ventilated front sport seats. Depending on how much you’re willing to spend, your ride can be quite luxurious.
Biggest Trunk Space: 2019 Honda Accord
There is just slightly more storage space in the trunk in the 2019 Honda Accord than in its Ford Fusion rival. But we’re only talking an extra bag or two of groceries. The Honda Accord has a trunk that measures 16.7 cubic feet while the Ford Fusion’s trunk measures 16 cubes even.
Most Intuitive Infotainment: 2019 Ford Fusion
The Fusion does the best job of keeping you connected. Importantly, the SYNC 3 system includes a responsive, easy-to-figure-out touchscreen. Trust us, the last thing you want to do during your daily drive is relentlessly jab at a screen. The Fusion also includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Just plug your phone into the system to project apps like maps and music onto the touchscreen.
Back in the Honda Accord, you’ll also find modern smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. What you won’t find, however, is a streamlined touchscreen experience. Honda’s infotainment menus come with a bit of a learning curve, and the system’s touchscreen is known for its finicky responses.
Safest Commuter: 2019 Ford Fusion
This year, every Ford Fusion comes standard with Ford’s Co-Pilot 360 Protect package. This bundle of safety aids helps you spot danger. Once you experience its forward collision mitigation and blind-spot monitoring features, you’ll wonder how you ever did without them.
The Honda Accord actually comes standard with a similar array of safety gear. However, its forward collision warning system is known for crying wolf, which is only destined to get on your nerves, especially if you deal with a lot of rush-hour traffic.
Most Fun to Drive: It’s a Tie!
When it comes to sharp steering and plentiful power, both the 2019 Ford Fusion and the Honda Accord deliver. Driving enthusiasts can choose sporty engine upgrades; both models offer turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines that boost speed and overall performance.
In the end, though, drivers looking for safety, modern comfort, and an exciting performance are going to love the Ford Fusion. With so much to love about Ford’s midsize sedan, we think you’ll agree that it’s the best choice for your day-to-day travels.
