Differences between the 2017 Ford Fusion and 2017 Subaru Legacy

There’s no denying that the Subaru Legacy is impressive. Even at its standard level it comes with an all-wheel drive system and a solid 2.5L 4-cylinder engine. Where it loses us a little bit is its CVT transmission, which is heavily focused on efficiency over performance. The legacy has one more available engine: a V6 with 256 horsepower, but this is also where the Ford Fusion really shines. The 2017 Ford Fusion hits similar numbers with its 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost engine with 245 horsepower -- which is also more efficient. However, it is the 2.7L EcoBoost V6 in the Ford Fusion Sport that is unmatched with 325 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. This is even more horsepower than every engine in the Mustang that isn’t a V8!

The rest of the 2017 Ford Fusion tells the same story. You can get  premium, luxury features, sporty features, or even go the efficiency route with the Ford Fusion Hybrid. There are five different engine options in the Ford Fusion, compared to the two from Subaru, and its trims are more distinct. The Fusion also has an available SYNC 3 infotainment system that works with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as numerous advanced safety features!
