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.

The 2018 Ford Fusion is a midsize sedan that hasn't changed much on the outside over the last few years, but all the updates underneath the skin keep it competitive in a segment with plenty of brand rivalry. The standard Fusion (the hybrid version is reviewed separately) is broken down into five trim levels: S, SE, Titanium, Platinum and V6 Sport. Think of the S and SE trim levels as the base, with the Titanium and the Platinum topping the ladder. The V6 Sport model adds a particularly powerful engine along with a long list of standard features and unique styling.

If you're looking for more bang for your buck, the Fusion S and SE make a good deal of sense. They come standard with items such as a rearview camera, cruise control, air-conditioning, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, Bluetooth, smartphone app integration power front seats and satellite radio. Aside from the standard equipment, there's a combination of stand-alone options and packages, many of which are available across multiple trim levels. Both the SE and Platinum trim levels for instance, have an optional Driver Assistance package that adds items such as blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning and a lane-keeping assist system.

Prices for the Fusion will vary based on the trim level you want, the engine you choose (paired with front-wheel drive or available all-wheel drive) and the number of creature comforts to go along with those choices. There are four engines to choose from when you include the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder, and comfort items such as ventilated seats, upgraded leather upholstery and sport suspension can all drive the price up. Compared to rivals though, that's pretty much the norm. When you put similar trim levels up against competitors, the Fusion is within a few hundred dollars (in either direction) of segment leaders.

On the upper trim levels such as the Platinum and the V6 Sport, you'll be paying top dollar for this four-door Ford, but build quality and materials meet or surpass the standards set by many entry-level luxury cars. So, in short, the added price might just be worth it if you're looking to supplant a luxury car with something more unconventional. So whether you're looking for a basic, no-frills version of the 2018 Ford Fusion or a decked-out, top-of-the-line Platinum edition, Edmunds can help you find the perfect one for your garage.
