Competitive Chatter Ford Facts Simply Stated
Safety Technology

According to the Hyundai website, Sonata is a 2015 IIHS Top Safety Pick with an impressive list of advanced safety features that surround passengers with:

  • Smart Cruise Control featuring stop/start capability
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Blind Spot Detection
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • And more

AND, Fusion is also a 2015 IIHS Top Safety Pick, as well as offering a number of available features not found on Sonata:

  • Active park assist*
  • Forward Sensing System*
  • Automatic high-beam headlamps*
While Sonata has a couple of features to help detect and warn you about potential collisions, Fusion matches those features and offers others not even available on Sonata, including available active park assist and a Forward Sensing System. AND, Fusion is a 2015 IIHS Top Safety Pick.
Horsepower

On the Sonata webpage, the company brags about the horsepower available with its turbocharged 2.0L GDI engine:

  • 245 horsepower
  • 260 lb.-ft. of torque

Horsepower is only one part of the equation. Torque is what gets the vehicle going and the 2.0L EcoBoost® I-4 available for Fusion delivers more torque than Sonata’s 2.0L I-4 engine:

  • 240 horsepower(2)
  • 270 lb.-ft. or torque

AND, Fusion offers available all-wheel drive, which is not available at all on Sonata.

For the get-up-and-go you need to pass with confidence, don’t look at horsepower, look at torque. And the 2.0L EcoBoost engine available for Fusion delivers more torque than Sonata’s 2.0L engine. Plus, of the two, only Fusion offers available all-wheel drive.

Integrated Bluetooth

Sonata includes integrated Bluetooth so you can use your phone while keeping your hands on the wheel, according to the Hyundai website.

Fusion also uses Bluetooth to allow drivers to control phone and audio with voice commands. AND, thanks to available SYNC® with MyFord Touch®(5), Fusion drivers can also control the audio system, available navigation system and the climate control system with voice commands. Sonata has limited voice commands.

Fusion goes above and beyond the simple Bluetooth capabilities available in Sonata. SYNC with MyFord Touch allows you to use voice commands to control the audio, navigation and climate control systems. Sonata can’t do all that.

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.
