Performance

The Ford Fusion S gets a 2.5L four-cylinder engine, and the Honda Accord LX gets a 1.5L turbo inline-4—and there’s a notable output difference. The Accord’s turbo engine generates a standard 192 hp and torque to match. The Fusion’s engine, on the other hand, only creates 175 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque.

Fuel Economy

All things considered, it might seem like the Accord would take a hit in the fuel economy department, but it’s actually more fuel-efficient than the Ford Fusion:

  • 2018 Honda Accord – Standard fuel economy with the base engine and Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) is an EPA-estimated 30 mpg city/38 mpg highway.*
  • 2018 Ford Fusion – The Fusion’s base engine manages a max EPA-estimated 21 mpg city/32 mpg highway rating.

Starting Price & Residual Value

True, the new Honda Accord ($23,570 starting MSRP**) is slightly more expensive than the Ford Fusion ($22,120 starting MRSP). But when you consider ALG Residual Value, your perspective on which is the better buy is likely to change:

  • After three and five years of ownership, the Honda Accord retains 55% and 37% of its value, respectively.
  • The Ford Fusion, however, doesn’t fare as well. After three years of ownership, it retains 40% of its value. After five years—just 27%.
