2016 Ford Fusion

The 2016 Honda Accord Sedan is one of the most popular sedans across Malin and Keno, easily outpacing competitors like the 2016 Ford Fusion. With top safety scores, exclusive on-board technologies, and far more power beneath the hood, there’s little reason for drivers to consider the Fusion over the Accord.

Trim Levels

Drivers will be able to select one of six trim levels with the 2016 Honda Accord Sedan, including:

  • LX: The entry-level LX comes with a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines, 16-inch alloy wheels, a Bluetooth HandsFreeLink system with streaming audio, and cruise control.
  • Sport: The Sport showcases 19-inch alloy wheels, 10-way power driver’s seat, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel as standard. It also provides an extra 4 hp over the LX.
  • EX: The EX comes with a Honda LaneWatch safety system, Smart Entry system with Push Button Start, one-touch power moonroof with tilt feature, and a HomeLink remote system.
  • EX-L: The EX-L offers a 10-way power driver’s seat, leather-trimmed seats, heated front seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
  • EX-L V6: The EX-L V6 combines the standout features of the regular EX-L model with the power of the Accord’s V6 engine.
  • Touring: The top-of-the-line Touring trim comes with a Honda satellite-linked navigation system with voice-recognition technology, parking sensors, and all of the driver-assistance features of the Honda Sensing package.

The 2016 Ford Fusion offers half the choice, with just three trim levels to choose from.

  • S: Equips 16-inch steel wheels, power mirrors, and a rearview camera.
  • SE: With a six-speaker sound system, 8-way driver’s seat, and rear air ducts.
  • Titanium: It’s not until the Titanium that you’ll be able to enjoy keyless entry, HD radio, and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Powertrains and MPG

The 2016 Honda Accord offers two engines from which Malin and Keno drivers can choose:

  • 2.4L Four-Cylinder: Makes 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque (or 189 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque with the Sport model). With this engine and a CVT, the 2016 Accord LX offers 27 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway.*
  • 3.5L V6: Generates up to 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque for a sporty and responsive ride.

The 2016 Ford Fusion just can’t keep up. Its standard 2.5L engine comes in at just 175 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque, but still only achieves up to 22 and 34. You can then either opt for an available 181 hp 1.5L, which is less powerful than the Accord’s standard engine, or a 240-hp V6, which falls well short of the Accord’s V6.

Interior

The Honda Accord received a comprehensive refresh for 2016, with an interior fitted with new materials and provided with an uncluttered, intuitive layout. It’s one of the best-looking sedans on the market, inside and out, with a level of quality unmatched by competitors like the 2016 Ford Fusion. However, that doesn’t come at the cost of practicality, with both vehicles sporting an expansive trunk and plenty of legroom for all passengers.

Comfort and Convenience Features

The 2016 Honda Accord Sedan takes advantage of the latest automotive technologies, so drivers from Malin and Keno have plenty of options to choose from that just can’t be had with the 2016 Ford Fusion. Such features include:

  • Apple CarPlay®/Android Auto: Connect your smartphone to the vehicle’s touchscreen quickly and easily.
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Honda’s outstanding rearview monitor provides three viewing angles in order to deliver a comprehensive view of the area behind your vehicle.
  • Heated Rear Seats: Both the Accord and the Fusion offer heated front seats, but only the Accord gives you the option of heated rear seats, too.

Safety Features

The 2016 Accord Sedan, unlike the 2016 Ford Fusion, benefits from Honda’s celebrated ACE (Advanced Compatibility Engineering) body structure, so impact energy is directed away from occupants in the unlikely event of a collision occurring. It’s safety technology like that that led to the Accord with Honda Sensing being named a 2016 Top Safety Pick+ by the IIHS after scoring a top mark of “Good” in all crash categories and a rating of “Superior” in terms of frontal crash protection.

The Fusion was rated as only “Acceptable” in the small front overlap tests, “Marginal” in terms of child seat anchors, and a woeful “Basic” in terms of frontal crash protection.
