What Powers the Hybrid Vehicles?
The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid and the 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid are both designed to be as eco-friendly and efficient as possible. That starts with an engine that checks all your boxes for both performance and fuel economy.
The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid is powered by an inline 4-cylinder engine that produces up to 143 horsepower and 129 lb-ft of torque. The traditional engine is paired with an AC synchronous permanent magnet electric motor that produces 181 horsepower. The combined total system horsepower, as measured by a maximum output of the combined engines, is a maximum of 212 horsepower.
The 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid also offers exceptional power production. The vehicle’s 2.0L Atkinson-Cycle I-4 Hybrid engine is also paired with an AC synchronous permanent magnet motor. But the two engines combined produce only a maximum of 188 horsepower—a significantly lower power production than its competitor.
How Do the Interiors Compare in the Two Vehicles?
While you’re doing a great thing by investing in a fuel-efficient vehicle, you shouldn’t sacrifice your comfort or convenience. Today’s hybrid vehicles are not the stripped interior that many buyers of yore thought. The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid and the 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid are perfect examples of that.
The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid offers an incredibly comfortable interior. With Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control, a 10-way power adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support, illuminated steering wheel-mounted controls, and a push to start button, the interior is upscale and well appointed.
The 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid is also well appointed, but to get those nice features, you’d have to pay for expensive upgrades. For example, you’d have to upgrade to the SE Luxury package to get the 10-way power seat in the Ford Fusion Hybrid.
