For 2014 automakers have produced very stylish, efficient but still powerful vehicles. Randall Reed’s Planet Ford in Humble, TX (serving Kingwood, Conroe, Katy, Atascocita, and greater Houston area) wants to make your life easier, which is why we compared two of the top 2014 models in the affordable midsize car segment. The 2014 Volkswagen Passat and 2014 Ford Fusion battle it out based on engine performance, fuel efficiency, interior and technology.
Check out our comparison video below…
The Fusion comes with a 2.5 liter I-4 gasoline engine and touts an impressive 175 Horsepower and foot pounds of torque. The Passat with its bigger I-5 gasoline engine falls short with only 170 horsepower and 177 foot pounds of torque.
With todays gas prices…having a car that is fuel efficient is important. The Passat gets 22 city and 31 highway while the Fusion with it’s smaller but more powerful engine get 22 city and an impressive 34 highway miles per gallon.
While both cars have spacious and stylish cabins…the Fusion provides more front and rear head, shoulder and leg room for you and your passengers.
Technology has become more prevalent in our lives more than ever and the car industry has been integrating tech into cars to keep you connected. The Fusion is equipped with SYNC with MyFord Touch, SmartGauge with EcoGuide, Rearview Camera, Bliss with Cross-traffic alert, Active park assist, Lane-keeping system and adaptive Cruise Control with forward Collision warning. The Passat has keyless access with push-button and remote start, rearview camera, Bluetooth streaming and Volkswagen Car-Net.
