Differences between the 2017 Ford Fusion and Nissan Altima
The standard Nissan Altima holds a minor lead over the Ford Fusion in terms of fuel economy, but if you’re really looking for the best here then you’ll want to check out the hybrid trim of the Ford Fusion. The Ford Fusion hybrid can offer you a rating of 43 City/41 Highway MPG rating that can earn you some significant savings. Another concern when buying a new car is reliability. The Ford Fusion uses a tried and true 6-speed automatic transmission, whereas the Nissan Altima uses a 2-spd CVT, which is considered to be less reliable in the long term.
The 2017 Ford Fusion and Nissan Altima have a variety of trims, as mentioned earlier, and if you’re looking for a sporty car then each will have its own version of that. The 2017 Ford Fusion sport comes with a powerful 2.7L EcoBoost V6 that puts you and your driving experience first with its thrilling 325 horsepower. The Nissan Altima, on the other hand, only reaches 270 horsepower in its 3.5L V6.
Ultimately the best way to see if a car is right for you is by giving it a test drive. We’d like to invite you to Holiday Ford in Fond du Lac to see what the new 2017 Ford Fusion can do for you!
