The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid vs. The 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid
Today’s auto market is becoming increasingly competitive for drivers who are looking for a “no compromise” hybrid model that provides both maximum fuel saving technology and performance. Entering the market this year is the all-new 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid, available at Fisher Honda in Boulder.
Honda’s new addition to the hybrid lineup offers drivers premium performance and some of the industry’s most in-demand features. Still, there are models like the 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid that remain interesting options as well, so let’s check out the specs on these two hybrids.
Power and Fuel Efficiency
When it comes to hybrid models, most potential buyers want to see the numbers first. Both the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid and the 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid are powered by a 2.0L four-cylinder engine along with an electric motor, and both models offer an impressive EPA estimated 47 mpg combined city/highway. However, the Accord Hybrid beats out the Fusion Hybrid in terms of performance:
- 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid – 188 hp
- 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid – 196 hp
Comfort and Tech
In the high-tech age, cabin features are toward the top of most auto buyers’ lists. Both of these competitive hybrid models deliver with a wide range of standard features, including Bluetooth hands-free calling, steering wheel mounted audio and cruise controls, power doors, mirrors, and windows, dual zone climate controls, and much more. The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid distinguishes itself from the competition, though, with standard features that the Fusion does not have, including:
- Rearview camera
- Power driver seat
- Heated exterior mirrors
- Stereo anti-theft
If you’re in the market for a high-quality midsize sedan, then chances are space is something you’ve considered as well. While the 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid offers competitive cargo and passenger space, the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid takes the edge with 12.7 cubic feet of cargo volume and 103.2 cubic feet of passenger volume compared to the Fusion Hybrid’s 12.0 cubic feet and 102.8 cubic feet, respectively.
