The spacious 2016 Ford Fusion

When it comes to comfort and spaciousness, the 2016 Fusion also offers more room to stretch than the 2016 Chevy Malibu. In spite of having a slightly shorter exterior length (191.7 inches compared to 193.8 inches) the 2016 Ford Fusion offers slightly more front and rear head- and legroom than its Chevy competitor, and slightly more luggage space as well. That's a total gain of almost three extra cubic feet of passengers space to keep up to five passengers happy and comfortable. Of course the leather upholstery standard in this elite trim of the Ford Fusion may also have something to do with that.

The Fusion is also at the top of the 2016 Ford Fusion vs 2016 Chevy Malibu comparison when it comes to safety.
