2017 Honda Accord vs. 2018 Ford Fusion

On the surface, the 2018 Ford Fusion Sedan appears to be at the top of its game; it’s affordable, fuel-friendly, and available with a host of driver assists. Compared to the award-winning 2017 Honda Accord, however, it loses its appeal in several crucial categories. The 2017 Honda Accord has become a fast favorite of drivers from Billings, MT to Sheridan, WY, thanks to its fuel-efficient performance, safety, and overall value. To show just what the Honda Accord is made of, we’ve stacked it up against the Ford Fusion in the comparison below!

Price and Residual Value

First and foremost, let’s compare price—the starting point for most car shoppers. The 2018 Ford Fusion has a starting MSRP of $22,995, while the 2017 Honda Accord has a starting MSRP of $22,455.* Both have destination charges of $875. Although slightly less expensive, the Fusion can’t compete with the Accord’s economical residual value. Even after 60 months, the new Accord holds onto 32-percent of its ALG residual value, while the Fusion retains just 29-percent. Should you ever sell your vehicle, the Honda Accord would likely fetch you a greater profit.


The Ford Fusion comes equipped with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine that’s rated at 175 hp with torque to match. With its standard 6-speed automatic transmission, the Fusion earns a 21 mpg city/32 mpg highway rating. When you choose the Accord, however, you’ll benefit from a stronger engine, as well as greater efficiency. Under the hood of the Accord rests a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that generates 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. With its base engine and 6-speed manual transmission, the 2017 Honda Accord earns an EPA-estimated 23 mpg city/32 mpg highway.**

Driver Assists

If you’re comparing the Honda Accord and Ford Fusion, chances are safety is a deciding factor for you. The 2018 Fusion SE and Titanium are available with a Driver Assist Package, which includes Blind Spot Information System, Lane-Keeping System, and more. With the 2017 Honda Accord, however, you don’t have to upgrade beyond the base trim for driver-assistive features; Honda Sensing is available with the Accord LX. This safety suite installs several clever technologies to help improve your confidence behind the wheel.
