Maximizing Your MPG
Out on the road, it may come as little surprise that the Honda Accord delivers greater fuel efficiency when compared with the Ford Fusion.
2017 Accord models equipped with a CVT earn an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 36 mpg on the highway and 27 mpg in the city.* Models with a 6MT get an EPA-estimated 32 mpg on the highway and 23 mpg in the city.*
In contrast, the Ford Fusion’s EPA-estimated fuel economy ranges between only 26 and 34 mpg on the highway and just 17 and 23 mpg in the city.
In terms of standard engine delivery, the Accord once again wins the day in comparison to the Fusion.
The 2.4L In-Line 4-cylinder engine that comes standard in the Accord base model produces 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque.
In comparison, the 2.5L Duratec I-4 engine that comes standard in the Fusion base model generates just 175 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque.
The Accord’s base engine is mated with either a standard 6-speed manual transmission or an available continuously variable transmission with Sport Mode. The Fusion’s base engine is paired with 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission; continuously variable transmission is only offered for the higher trim levels in the Fusion lineup.
