2017 Ford Fusion vs. 2017 Hyundai Sonata

If you're in the market for a midsize sedan that combines style and substance, two options you might consider are the Hyundai Sonata and Ford Fusion. Wayne Ford compares the Fusion and Sonata below to educate Montclair, Clifton, and Paterson drivers about their performances, designs, and unique features. 

Fusion vs. Sonata - Performance

The Fusion and Sonata's standard configurations come with in-line four-cylinder engines with similar horsepower ratings. In addition to their gas powertrains, the Fusion and Sonata offer hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants.

Both cars deliver smooth and engaging performances, but what really sets the 2017 Fusion apart is a 2.7L EcoBoost® V6 engine that uses turbocharging, direct injection, and twin independent variable cam timing to deliver up to 325 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque.

Standard on the Fusion's all-new Sport trim, the V6 is mated to a six-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission with paddle shifters that deliver seamless and athletic gear shifts. Standard intelligent all-wheel drive enhances road grip during sharp driving maneuvers, transforming your humdrum morning commute into an exhilarating, precise driving experience.

The 2017 Hyundai Sonata is fun to drive in its own right, but only generates up to 245 horsepower with its twin-scroll turbo inline four-cylinder engine. This may be sufficient for some drivers, but the Ford Fusion Sport is noticeably faster, especially in the passing lane.

Cutting-Edge Technology Features

Staying connected is a top priority for many drivers. Luckily, the Ford Fusion and Hyundai Sonata provide several innovative features that bring the world to the tips of your fingers.

The Ford Fusion is available with a user-friendly SYNC® 3 interface, which bundles an eight-inch multicolor touchscreen display, voice recognition, and smartphone integration into one dashboard-mounted command center. With a simple swipe or voice command, you can call your friends, email your boss, and stream your favorite Pandora station-all while your smartphone is in your pocket where it belongs.

Like the Fusion, the 2017 Sonata offers a multimedia touchscreen display. Apple CarPlayTM and Android AutoTM let you access features like maps, music, and contacts on your compatible smartphone.  The Sonata provides easy access to your favorite digital media. Some drivers may prefer SYNC® 3, though, which also shows you important performance stats with the Fusion's SmartGauge® with EcoGuide.

The 2017 Hyundai Sonata is an attractive sedan that checks off all the right boxes: stylish looks, advanced technology, and a smooth yet efficient performance. However, the Ford Fusion pulls ahead with its innovative SYNC® 3 infotainment center and powerful 2.7L EcoBoost® V6, proving to be a stronger option for Montclair, Clifton, and Paterson drivers.
