2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid: Cargo Capacity
February 04, 2010
You asked about cargo space in the Ford Fusion Hybrid compared to the Toyota Prius and Honda Insight. Keep in mind, the Prius and Insight are considered hatchbacks. The Fusion Hybrid is a sedan and the battery lives behind the rear seat, so that limits its trunk. I added numbers for the Nissan Altima Hybrid and the Toyota Camry Hybrid, too.
|Maximum Luggage Capacity||Maximum Cargo Capacity|
|2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid||11.8 cu. ft.||12 cu. ft.|
|2010 Honda Insight||15.9 cu. ft.||32 cu. ft.|
|2010 Toyota Prius||21.6 cu. ft.||40 cu. ft.|
|2010 Nissan Altima Hybrid||10.1 cu. ft.||?|
|2010 Toyota Camry Hybrid||10.6 cu. ft.||?|
The Toyota Camry has a 60/40 split-folding rear seat, but I can't find any data on the maximum cargo capacity. The 2007 model (I haven't driven the new one) only revealed a pass-through compartment. In order to keep the battery protected, it didn't open to the whole trunk.
From what I can tell the Nissan Altima Hybrid does not have folding seats, although the non-hybrid seems to have them. I can't be sure, so the table above only has the numbers I could find. Hope this helps.
