We at Pohanka Hyundai have put together a 2016 Hyundai Sonata vs 2016 Ford Fusion near Bowie, MD, comparison, so you can see which of your options brings more to the table.

To start things off, we looked at what is under the hood of the 2016 Hyundai Sonata and the 2016 Ford Fusion. Both of these midsize sedans come standard with a 4-cylinder engine, but the one in the Sonata simply gives you more. In the Sonata, you’ll have 185 horsepower and 178 lb.-ft. of torque, as well as an efficient 25/38 MPG city/hwy1. The Fusion falls short, as it only produces 175 horsepower, 175 lb.-ft. of torque, and 22/34 MPG city/hwy1. If you want a more revved-up drive, both the Sonata and the Fusion have an engine upgrade. In the Sonata, the turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder has an output of 245 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. The turbocharged engine in the Fusion slightly edges out the Sonata with 270 lb.-ft. of torque, but only will produce 240 horsepower.

Drivers who also desire smart technology features will find that this 2016 Hyundai Sonata vs 2016 Ford Fusion near Bowie, MD, comparison breaks those down too. For instance, if your hands are full of shopping bags from Hill Top Plaza Shopping Center, simply stand behind the Sonata for three seconds within three feet, and the hands-free smart trunk will open automatically. Not only does the Fusion not offer this feature, but the Sonata is the only midsize sedan in its class2 to offer such convenience.

Let’s compare the tech features that come standard. As soon as you have a seat inside the 2016 Sonata, you’ll notice the vibrant 7-inch touchscreen. When behind the wheel of the 2016 Fusion, something is missing because a touchscreen of any size isn’t standard. This means that not does the Fusion not come standard with a rearview camera, like the Sonata does, but you also won’t find Apple CarPlay™3 and Android Auto4™ either. In the Sonata, just pair your iPhone® or Android™, and you’ll be able to use a variety of your favorite apps directly on this screen. And while both sedans let you listen to your personal playlists with Bluetooth® technology, only the Sonata comes standard with SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, playing through six speakers. You’ll find SiriusXM® Satellite Radio only in top trim levels of the Fusion, and, even so, it’ll only be played through four speakers.

If you desire tons of power and the latest technology in a new midsize sedan, this 2016 Hyundai Sonata vs 2016 Ford Fusion near Bowie, MD, comparison makes it clear which one is the best option.
