2016 Toyota Camry vs 2016 Ford Fusion
Although the Corolla preceded it by over 15 years, the Toyota Camry is one of the oldest vehicles still on the Toyota lineup today. Back when it was first introduced it was a narrow-body compact car, but today – and for the past couple of decades – it has been a wide-body midsize sedan. Now in its tenth generation, Toyota has had plenty of time to master and perfect the art of the Camry, so we thought we’d take a look at it in comparison to one of its biggest segment rivals by pitting the 2016 Toyota Camry vs 2016 Ford Fusion.
Unlike the Camry, the Fusion has barely been around for a decade, making it one of the younger vehicles on the Ford lineup. But that doesn’t change the fact that even in that short span of time it has become one of the most popular vehicles in the midsize sedan segment, and thus one of the Camry’s biggest competitors.
Advantages of the 2016 Toyota Camry
As you can tell by taking a look at the table above, the two vehicles are definitely comparable opponents within their class, but in regards to the specifications we took a look at we think the 2016 Toyota Camry squeaks out the victory. Starting from the top of the table, the Camry is clearly superior in terms of fuel economy. On the highway, which isn’t show, they’re fairly equal, but through city streets the Camry will save you quite a bit of money at the pump by utilizing 1.3 l/100km less.
In terms of power, at first glance, the 2016 Ford Fusion doesn’t trail very far behind with only 3 less horsepower. But when you look at it in conjunction with the fact that the Camry weighs nearly 200 lbs. less it becomes obvious that the Camry will deliver a slightly more enjoyable driving experience. The one area the Fusion is superior is in terms of cabin space, but even then the difference is so small that you’d barely notice the 0.7 cu. ft. of extra space your passengers would have inside.
Overall, mixing in the outstanding safety ratings and features found in the 2016 Toyota Camry, we think it becomes obvious which vehicle would be the better choice.
