2017 Honda Accord SedanIf you want to get the most from your new sedan, it’s best to start out by looking at mpg and engine performance. In today’s market, you can customize nearly every aspect of your new vehicle, but no amount of superficial change is going to make up for lackluster engineering! The 2017 Ford Fusion, especially its new hybrid models, has been getting a lot of attention recently, but a careful examination of the facts will show that the Fusion doesn’t come close to matching the capabilities of the 2017 Honda Accord. Read on to find out why the technologically advanced Honda Accord remains the top choice for drivers in the Hampton Roads area.

The Accord Takes the Lead

By the numbers, the 2017 Accord starts out with a clear advantage over the 2017 Fusion. Although both of these sedans are priced similarly, your dollar will take you much further in the Accord, which has much better fuel economy than many of its competitors, including the Fusion. The Accord Sedan LX with CVT earns an EPA-estimated 27 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway, a significant advantage over the fuel efficiency you’d be getting in the standard Fusion model, which gets just 21 mpg city and 32 mpg highway.

If you’re worried that Honda’s focus on efficiency may cost you in terms of capability and power, then fear not! The Accord’s 185 hp handily beats out the standard Fusion model’s 175 hp.
