The 2013 Accord Sedan vs. the 2013 Ford Fusion
At Bosak Honda in Highland, we’ve fallen in love with the 2013 Honda Accord. With a fresh redesign and some new technology, the new Accord is a reminder of all of the features that have made it one of the most popular mid-sized sedans in Merrillville and the rest of the United States. That said, the segment is a lot more crowded these days, with worthy contenders coming from all around the world. One of the newcomers to the field is the 2013 Ford Fusion. Here’s how the two sedans compare.
Quality and Value
We think the 2013 Accord is a better value in the long run than the 2013 Fusion. Here’s why:
The 2013 Accord LX is less expensive up front, with a base MSRP of $21,680, compared to the $21,700 base MSRP of the Fusion.
The 2013 Accord LX model with six-speed manual transmission can achieve 24 mpg city/34 mpg highway/28 mpg combined* — the Fusion S is rated at 26 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg in the city.
Performance and Engineering
Even at a lower price, and with better fuel economy, the 2013 Honda Accord will beat the 2013 Ford Fusion in both power and performance. The new Accord gets a 2.4L four-cylinder direct-injection engine that produces 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. The new Fusion gets a 2.5L four-cylinder engine that only makes 175 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque.
Comfort and Convenience
The Accord also is the clear choice for comfort and convenience because many features that come standard on the Accord aren’t standard on the Fusion. Automatic dual-zone climate control, cruise control, and a rearview camera are all standard equipment in the Accord.
