New Honda Accord more than a match for Ford Fusion Accord offers more power, fuel-economy

AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Honda vehicles, like the 2014 Honda Accord that is available at Howdy Honda, have gained a well deserved and nearly indestructible reputation for outstanding reliability and fuel-efficiency. Certainly the 2014 Honda Accord fits this bill; but when a vehicle like the new Accord reaches such a pinnacle, the competition comes out of the woodwork. When customers are doing their due diligence during the research phase of shopping for a new car, they will need some specific head-to-head information about the Accord and its chief rivals. Howdy Honda has provided that very thing by pitting the 2014 Honda Accord vs. the 2014 Ford Fusion.

This is a particularly close match up. Both vehicles share some common design elements; and from a mechanical point of view, each vehicle is again pretty similar. The 2014 Honda Accord is powered by a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine and the 2014 Ford Fusion has a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine under its hood. What does a one-tenth of a liter difference in engine displacement do? For starters in the battle between the 2014 Honda Accord vs. the 2014 Ford Fusion is the available horsepower. The Honda Accord produces 185 horsepower; across the ring the 2014 Ford Fusion measures in at 175-horsepower.

While both of these power output scores are very near the top of the mid-size sedan class of the automotive industry, the 27 miles per gallon in the city and 36 miles per gallon on the highway that the 2014 Accord gets for Environmental Protection Agency, almost dwarfs the 22 mpg city, 34 mpg highway scores posted by the 2014 Fusion. Additionally, the 2014 Honda Accord comes in two alternate versions, a two-door coupe and a hybrid.

Another impressive feature of the 2014 Honda Accord is the overall design of the passenger cabin. Most, if not every, surface is covered with soft-touch premium materials and even the tallest of drivers and passengers should be comfortable in almost any position in the 2014 Honda Accord. When it comes to driver and passenger safety, the Honda Accord moves ahead of the 2014 Ford Fusion with National Highway Traffic Safety Administration safety scores that are nearly perfect across the board.
