Winning Offerings

Drivers will discover that various features are offered standard in the Honda Accord that do not come standard in the Ford Fusion; in the Fusion, they either aren’t available at all or are only offered as optional upgrades.

Among them, the Accord includes the following as standard features on the base model, while the base-model Fusion does not have them:

  • Dual-zone climate control, which enables drivers and front-seat passengers to each select their own ideal temperatures and then automatically maintains them for optimum comfort. This is a feature the Ford Fusion base model does not include.
  • Anti-theft stereo, which helps keep the Accord from being targeted by thieves—a feature not offered in any of the Ford Fusion models.
  • Advanced compatibility engineering, or ACE, body structure, which is a Honda-exclusive vehicle construction that helps mitigate the effects of collisions by dispensing crash energy more evenly across the front of the vehicle. This design can even help distribute collision impact more evenly to the other vehicles involved in a crash. This protective design is not offered in the Fusion models.
  • Exterior temperature gauge, which keeps car occupants aware of the current temperature outside the vehicle as they travel in automated, climate-controlled comfort on the inside. This is one more feature that does not come standard onboard the Fusion.
