Family sedans are designed to get the whole clan from here to there and back again, which is why your search for the perfect car will fall down to one contest: the 2016 Hyundai Sonata vs. the 2016 Ford Fusion. While both sedans come from well-known manufacturers, the Sonata simply offers more in terms of performance, spacious interiors, and unique features. Take a closer look to see why the Sonata will be a perfect fit for you in this battle of the sedans.



As you choose between the Fusion and the Sonata, you will want the engine that offers the best combination of power and efficiency. While the Fusion is available in a dizzying array of powertrain options, it is the simplicity of the Sonata's lineup that helps it come out ahead. The base 2.5L on the fusion offers less horsepower than any Sonata engine, and poorer fuel economy than the Sonata's base and smaller turbocharged engines. Likewise, the Fusion's 1.5L engine lags behind two of the Sonata's engines in horsepower and fuel economy, while the Fusion's most powerful 2.0L EcoBoost engine still can't match the maximum horsepower of the Sonata's 2.0L engine. Specs for the Sonata's engine lineup include:

  • A 2.4L I4 engine that offers 184 hp and up to 38 mpg on the highway
  • A 1.4L turbocharged I4 engine that offers 178 hp and up to 38 mpg on the highway
  • A 2.0L turbocharged I4 engine that offers 245 hp and up to 32 mpg on the highway

Space and Comfort

The 2016 Hyundai Sonata offers roomy interiors that simply can't be beat, even with the flashy good looks of the 2016 Ford Fusion. The 106.1 cubic feet of passenger volume in the Sonata outstrips the 102.8 cubic feet on the Fusion, while the Sonata also leads in the areas of head room, leg room, hip room, and shoulder room.  The Hyundai also offers an additional .3 cubic feet of trunk space, which can make a big difference when you need as much room as possible for the family vacation.
