2017 Ford Fusion

The Ford Fusion Goes Toe-to-Toe with the Competition

At Bob Thomas Ford West, we're proud to recommend any of our Fords to our customers in the Fort Wayne area. Every one of the cars, trucks, and SUVs they make are high-quality, meticulously engineered, and stylish, and each one outshines its competition.

Take the Ford Fusion, for example. It's a stunning, four-door sedan that seats five and sets the bar high for any competing sedan on the market. It comes in a number of trims, has available all-wheel drive, and is equipped with all the latest technology and features drivers want.

As wonderful as we here at Bob Thomas Ford West think the Ford Fusion is, we know it's not the only mid-sized, American-made sedan clambering for your attention. To see how the Fusion stacks up against one of its top competitors, the Chevy Malibu, read on. We think you'll agree that they're both great cars, but the Ford edges out ahead of the Chevy in several key areas.

Ford Fusion Interior vs. Chevy Malibu

The Ford Fusion is crafted of high-quality materials and its craftsmanship is obvious throughout. From small details, such as a special pocket for cellphone storage, a larger storage bin in the center console, and a longer armrest, to the comfortable padding in each seat, the Fusion is a testament to luxury. The Chevy Malibu, comparatively, is constructed using a lot of cheaper materials, especially on the lower trim levels, where the car's budget roots really shine through.

Ford Fusion Exterior vs. Chevy Malibu

When this generation of the Ford Fusion debuted a few years ago, it was a head-turner, and that hasn't changed. It has a sports car look about it, with a lower nose and stylish front grille. What our customers in Fort Wayne really appreciate though is the car's versatility. The Fusion can be ordered with all-wheel drive and has two hybrid versions. The Malibu, while also remodeled in the last few years, is still just a tried and true boring sedan that's easy to overlook. It also doesn't come with available all-wheel drive and it doesn't have a plug-in hybrid option.

Ford Fusion Features vs. Chevy Malibu

Every Ford Fusion in the model's lineup comes with a long list of amazing tech features. Starting at the base trim, Fusion drivers get a car that's equipped with automatic LED headlights, full-power accessories, a rearview camera, and Bluetooth streaming and smartphone integration.

The Chevy Malibu base trim, however, doesn't come with any of these features standard, not even Bluetooth streaming. You have to move up trim levels and spend a lot more money to get the same features in a Malibu that you get automatically with a Ford Fusion.
