Fusion vs Sonata: Performance

The 2018 Ford Fusion is standardly powered by a 2.5L Duratec® 4-cylinder engine and 6-speed automatic transmission. You can also opt for an available eCVT automatic transmission and two other optional engines, including the high-performance 2.0L iVCT Atkinson-cycle 4-cylinder engine. When paired with the right equipment, this engine can deliver an incredible EPA-estimated 104 city/91 highway MPG.1

Unfortunately, no matter what engine you go with in the 2018 Hyundai Sonata, including the Eco's 4-cylinder turbo engine, you'll max out at an EPA-estimated 28 city/37 city MPG. Another thing you'll miss out on in the Sonata is efficient Auto Start-Stop Technology. This technology, which comes standard in the Fusion, turns the engine off when you're stopped to conserve fuel.

Fusion vs Sonata: Interior

It's not enough for a sedan to just be powerful and efficient - it should be comfortable and tech-savvy, too. Inside both the 2018 Ford Fusion and the 2018 Hyundai Sonata, you'll find five spacious seats, 16+ cubic feet of cargo room, and a variety of available comfort upgrades.

Opt for a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat, leather seating, a leather wrapped steering wheel, and a dual-zone automatic climate control system. Both sedans also offer heated and cooled front seats to keep you comfortable no matter what the weather's doing.

The Fusion takes interior luxury one step further by offering an impressive infotainment system that bundles entertainment and convenience. The available SYNC® 3 system offers Bluetooth® connectability as well as an advanced voice-activated navigation system with SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link®. This system provides live traffic updates on top of easy turn-by-turn directions.
