2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid vs 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid
Toyota is without a doubt one of the industry leaders when it comes to hybrid technology. The Prius was the very first mass-produced hybrid vehicle, and now they have 7 different hybrid vehicles in their lineup. But there are plenty of other manufacturers out there making great hybrid vehicles, so we thought we’d see how one of ours fares against one of theirs. With that in mind, we decided to compare the 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid to the 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid.
Advantages of the 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid
The table above highlights some of the most important specifications when it comes to vehicles like these: power, efficiency and space. Starting from the top, the Camry Hybrid takes an early lead by offering 12 horsepower more than the Ford Fusion Hybrid. While that’s not a huge advantage, it is definitely noticeable.
However, the Fusion Hybrid fires right back by utilizing 0.3 litres less fuel than the Camry Hybrid to drive a distance of 100 kilometres. So the advantages kind of even out thus far, either a slight boost in power or a slight advantage in fuel efficiency. But as the table goes on, the Camry Hybrid clearly takes the lead, regardless of how small the advantages are.
In terms of space, which is important no matter what segment you’re looking into, the Camry Hybrid offers more cargo capacity and passenger volume, though neither is massive. The Camry’s trunk offers an extra 1.1 cu. ft. of space for luggage, while its cabin offers an extra cubic foot of space for you and your passengers to stretch out and get comfortable in.
While its advantages are slight, they combine with the incredible suite of standard and available features, including a host of safety features and technologies, that Toyota has to offer.
