Comparing 2016 Fusion to the 2015 Nissan Altima

On its website, Nissan promotes Altima as focusing on the details of the vehicle as well as its inherent quality. Highlights are given to NissanConnect, Active Understeer Control and technologies.

Competitive Chatter Ford Facts Simply Stated
NissanConnect

The Nissan website states that NissanConnect with Navigation and Mobile Apps uses handsfree technology, a smartphone and the Altima’s display screen to:

  • Play music
  • Stay in touch with your social network
  • Navigate any city

SYNC® with MyFord Touch®*(5) in Fusion has capabilities that the NissanConnect doesn’t, including:

  • Controls the heating and cooling system with voice commands
Able to control the heating and cooling system with voice commands, SYNC with MyFord Touch has capabilities not found on Altima’s more basic NissanConnect system. Real-world example: Turning on the air conditioning is as easy as saying, “Climate, AC on.” You can’t do that in an Altima.
Active Understeer Control

Altima’s Active Understeer Control sets even the sharpest turn straight, according to the Nissan website.

Fusion offers Torque Vectoring Control, (6) which uses the vehicle braking system to deliver the effect of a limited-slip front differential without the complexity and additional weight. When cornering, the system automatically applies the brake to the inside front wheel, effectively delivering more torque to the front outside wheel. AND, Fusion offers all-wheel drive, which is not available on Altima.

Not only does Fusion offer Torque Vectoring Control to help during turns, it also has allwheel drive available, which provides additional traction when you need it.

Technologies

Altima advertises its driver-focused technologies, including Moving Object Detection, informative instrumentation and tire pressure sensors.

Fusion has technologies that match Altima:

  • BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert system*
  • Lane-keeping system with Driver Alert System*

PLUS, Fusion offers these technological features that Altima doesn’t:

  • Rain-sensing windshield wipers*
  • Automatic high-beam headlamps*
  • Active park assist*(6)
  • Forward Sensing System*
  • Adaptive cruise control with forward collision warning*

Fusion offers many available driver technologies that Altima simply doesn’t even offer, such as the available active park assist with Forward Sensing System that helps in parallel parking or available rain-sensing windshield wipers.

2016 Fusion vs. the Competition on Performance

With three 4-cylinder engines available, including two EcoBoost® engines, Fusion offers drivers a wide range of horsepower, torque and fuel economy capabilities. Demonstrate to your customers how the Fusion engine lineup fits their needs.
