With breathtaking new exterior bodies, the Ford Fusion and the Hyundai Sonata are quickly becoming some of the most desirable midsize sedans on the market. So which one of these eye-catching cars is right for you? It’s too difficult to make a judgment based on looks alone, so it’s important to take other elements of each midsize sedan into account. Consider factors like performance, interior comfort and warranty coverage in order to make an informed decision. Use this side-by-side comparison to help you out: Ford Fusion vs Hyundai Sonata.

Hyunda Sonata vs Ford Fusion


2013 Hyundai Sonata
The Sonata and Fusion are close when it comes to performance, but the Sonata prevails. The Hyundai Sonata SE is powered by a 2.4L I-4 200 horsepower engine which achieves 24 MPG/CITY and 35 MPG/HWY. That’s more horsepower and better fuel economy.
2013 Ford Fusion

The Ford Fusion is less powerful than the Sonata. The 2.5L I-4 engine of the Ford Fusion SE offers 175 horsepower. The Fusion also falls short on fuel economy, delivering a mere 22 MPG/CITY and 34 MPG/HWY.

The Sonata delivers more standard comfort so you don’t have to pay to add on extras. Included in the Sonata SE are leather bolster sport seats with cloth inserts and heated seating for both the driver and front passenger.

2013 Ford Fusion

To get more in your Ford Fusion, you have to pay more. The Ford Fusion SE is a little more expensive than the Hyundai Sonata SE, but includes basic cloth bucket front seats and does not provide an option for heating in this particular model.


Manufacturer’s Basic Warranty

Hyundai’s legendary warranty coverage extends to the Sonata with 60 months/60,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper protection. Also, Hyundai’s powertrain warranty far outshines Ford’s with an unmatched 10 years/100,000 miles of coverage.
2013 Ford Fusion
When it comes to warranty coverage, Ford is no match for the peace of mind that Hyundai provides. The 2013 Fusion includes 36 months/36,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage and just 60 months/60,000 miles of powertrain protection.
