How would you like to drive a new mid-size sedan that is not only spacious and fuel-efficient, but also supremely safe and well-appointed? If that has piqued your interest, then you must see the Honda Accord! Honda's popular Accord sedan has been one of the best-selling cars in America for many years now, and the latest version provides even more value and features than before. Vatland Honda proudly serves residents near Ft. Pierce, Port St. Lucie, Sebastian, and Palm Bay & Fellsmere as one of the area's go-to Honda dealerships.

Here on the Vatland Honda website, you can not only shop our current inventory, but also research Honda's latest models, like the new Accord, and even compare them to the competition. Let's see how the 2016 Honda Accord stacks up against one of its most popular rivals, the Ford Fusion.

Standard Fuel Economy

When it comes to standard fuel economy, the 2016 Honda Accord is miles ahead of the 2016 Ford Fusion. The new Accord's standard 2.4-liter inline-4 engine sips fuel with the best of them in the mid-size sedan class, returning up to an EPA-estimated 27 city and 37 highway mpg rating -- or 31 mpg combined. Those fuel economy numbers put the Honda Accord mid-size sedan in good company -- including with some smaller, compact cars! In comparison, the 2016 Fusion's standard 2.5-liter engine manages just 22 city and 34 highway mpg, with a combined rating of 26 mpg. You read those figures correctly; the Accord tops the Fusion in standard fuel economy by a whopping five mpg combined! On top of the drastic difference in fuel efficiency, the Accord also features a larger standard fuel capacity than Ford's Fusion, meaning that you can many miles further on one tank of gas in the Honda. If you like to spend as little time at the gas pump as possible, then you should take a serious look at the 2016 Accord when shopping for a new sedan.

Standard Horsepower and Torque

The 2016 Accord is tough to beat when it comes to standard horsepower in the mid-size sedan class. Its standard 2.4-liter inline four engine develops a potent 185 horses and 181 lb-ft of torque and sends power to the front wheels via your choice of either a continuously variable transmission (CVT) or a sporty 6-speed manual gearbox. Ford's base Fusion sedan gives up ten horsepower to the Accord, as it produces just 175 hp.Keep in mind that the 2016 Accord tips the scales at 200 pounds lighter than the Fusion, so the Accord's extra ten horsepower will feel like even more out on the road! If you are looking for even more power beneath the hood of an Accord, then test drive a Accord equipped with the available V6 engine. Honda's 3.5-liter V6 i-VTEC engine develops an inspiring 278 horses, or nearly 100 hp more than the standard Accord. No matter which 2016 Accord model you choose, you will have the power and confidence for any driving situation.

Standard Interior Features

Would you like to get into a new mid-size sedan at one of the lowest prices available? If so, then shopping the standard base trim of the Accord is a smart decision. There are many excellent amenities that come as standard equipment on the 2016 Accord that you will not find on the base 2016 Ford Fusion. For instance, amenities like dual-zone automatic climate control and an anti-theft stereo are standard on the Accord but not offered on the Fusion. Other standard features on the base 2016 Accord LX include a multi-angle rearview camera, Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® and Streaming Audio, taillights with integrated LED light bars, and stylish 16-inch alloy wheels. The Accord's standard Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines provides drivers with a better view of what is behind them, thanks to its three different angles: normal, top-down, and wide. If you want to take advantage of one of the best values in the mid-size sedan class, then get into a Honda Accord!

Passenger Space and Comfort

Drivers often choose mid-size sedans due to their comfort, and the 2016 Honda Accord certainly offers plenty of comfort for all five of its passengers. When it comes to interior space, the 2016 Accord tops its rival from Ford with more overall passenger volume, more front shoulder room and hip room, as well as more second-row legroom and hip room. You can find a spacious new Accord with either standard cloth seating or available leather seating surfaces; either way, you and your passengers will enjoy the supreme comfort and space of Honda's popular sedan. If you value space for all of your passengers, then the 2016 Honda Accord sedan is the clear choice here!

Safety Features

Chances are that if you are in the market for a spacious mid-size sedan like the Honda Accord, then you value the safety of your passengers. Mid-size sedan shoppers will be happy to hear that the 2016 Honda Accord is offered with a long list of innovative safety features, including active safety, passive safety, and the latest driver-assistance features. The Accord's available Honda Sensing™ system, Honda's suite of safety and driver assistive technologies, is one of the most comprehensive driver-alert systems offered in the mid-size sedan class today. While Ford's 2016 Fusion is also available with advanced driver assist technologies, you will likely have to upgrade to a high-end Fusion model to get those features. Many of Honda's cutting-edge safety technologies, like Honda Sensing™, are offered as options on Accord models of all price ranges, making the Accord a great choice for drivers or families who want the latest safety technologies without having to buy a fully-loaded model. Additional safety features that are available on 2016 Accord models include:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow (ACC)
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines
  • Lane departure warning system
  • Lane keeping assist system
  • Lane sway warning system
  • Pedestrian detection
  • Radar- or camera-based collision preparation system
  • Automatic braking, high-speed or partial
  • Forward collision warning

Safety Ratings

When it comes to the safety of you and your passengers, the Honda Accord is clearly leading the mid-size sedan pack. The NHTSA has awarded the 2016 Accord with the highest, 5-Star Overall Crash Test Rating, including five stars across the board! The 2016 Fusion achieved some 5-Star individual ratings, but managed only three or four stars in several of the NHTSA's crash tests.
