Ford Fusion vs. the competition

2018 Ford Fusion

2018 Ford Fusion

2018 Chevrolet Malibu

2018 Chevrolet Malibu

Ford Fusion vs. Chevrolet Malibu

The Malibu and Fusion are close competitors, and both boast 4-star Edmunds ratings. The Fusion offers a slightly larger trunk, and you can get it with all-wheel drive. But the Malibu is very comfortable and offers just as many technology options as the Fusion. The choice between these two will likely come down to the details.

Compare Ford Fusion & Chevrolet Malibu features

Ford Fusion vs. Ford Focus

The Ford Focus is smaller than the Fusion. As such, it doesn't have as much room inside. But there are reasons to consider a Focus. You can get it as a versatility-boosting hatchback or in two high-performance versions, the ST and the RS. It's also less expensive. The Fusion, however, is a more polished car overall. We give the Focus 3 stars.

Compare Ford Fusion & Ford Focus features

Ford Fusion vs. Honda Accord

The new Honda Accord is, we think, the best car currently available in this class, and we rated it 4.5 stars — almost a perfect score. It's satisfying to drive and surprisingly roomy, and it has tons of available technology and comfort options. In its top tier, the Accord puts some entry-level luxury cars to shame. It doesn't offer all-wheel drive, and its zippy 2.0-liter turbo is still outclassed by the Fusion Sport's V6, but it's an all-around excellent car.
