Ford Fiesta vs. Ford Fusion

For different reasons, the Ford Fusion and the Ford Fiesta are popular models. We know, the Fusion is a hybrid and the Fiesta isn’t. However, being smaller the Fiesta still gets similar gas mileage. Depending on your needs one or both could be the perfect car for you. Let’s take a look at both here and then come on in to Sunset Ford where you can test drive both the Fiesta and the Fusion and any other Ford models you’d like.

Road Tests

Both the Fiesta and the Fusion go 0-60 in in less than 11 seconds. The Fusion is slightly faster 8.9 seconds compared to 10.9 seconds for the Fiesta. Both vehicles need more than 120 feet to stop from 60mph, which is average for the class.

Safety Feature

Both the Fiesta and the Fusion come with standard anti-lock brakes and five airbags. The Fiesta is equipped with drum brakes while the Fusion comes with disc brakes, which are appropriate for high performance driving.

Interior Features

The Fiesta’s front seats are bit tight so may be more appropriate for more petite drivers, while the Fusion’s front seats are average for the class. Both models have folding rear seats and power outlets. If you do a lot of travelling, you’ll need to install an aftermarket navigation system as neither model comes with one.

Performance

Although neither vehicle is going to win awards for power, both hold their own for average commuters. The Fiesta comes as a manual transmission for those who love the feel of the road and don’t deal with stop and go traffic. The Fusion’s automatic transmission is great for commuters who sit in traffic.

Which one is right for you? Swing into Sunset Ford where you can try the Fusion, the Fiesta and any other Ford model that catches your fancy. We’re happy to give you the run down on each of the Ford models and help you find the one that works best for your life.
