2016 VW Passat vs 2016 Ford Fusion near Baltimore, MD

And the Winner is... the 2016 Passat!

If you are in need of a new midsize sedan, but aren’t sure where to start, we at Pohanka VW know you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for within the Passat. With its exquisitely crafted German engineering, and tons of exciting features, it’s everything you could want. To prove it, we have taken the 2016 VW Passat vs the 2016 Ford Fusion near Baltimore, MD, so you can see all the ways the Passat prevails.

We know you want tons of power from your new vehicle, and both the 2016 VW Passat and the 2016 Ford Fusion provide you with engine upgrades more powerful than the standard option. In the Passat, its 3.6L V6 engine churns out an invigorating 280 horsepower on your daily commute down I-395. The most powerful engine in the Fusion is its 2.0L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder engine, which falls short with only 240 horsepower.

This side-by-side look at the 2016 VW Passat vs the 2016 Ford Fusion near Baltimore, MD, also compares the exterior of both these sleek and stunning midsize sedans. When you drive the Passat, your visibility is simply upgraded, thanks to available LED headlights that emit a brighter beam than the halogen projector headlights in the Fusion. The Passat also has available corner-illuminating fog lights for a clear path during inclement weather. In the Fusion, you’ll only have such clarity when you add on a package, and even then, they won’t be corner-illuminating. Most notably, the Volkswagen Passat boasts a hands-free Easy Open trunk. Just stand with the key in your pocket, swipe your foot under the rear bumper, and it’ll open automatically. The Fusion doesn’t offer such convenience on any trim level.

Moving along to the inside, only the 2016 Passat lets you kick those winter blues to the curb with available heated front and rear seats. In the 2016 Fusion, your rear passengers will be left out in the cold, as its rear seats don’t possess any available heating capabilities. The Passat also gives you the latest and greatest in terms of smartphone integration in the form of available Apple CarPlay™1, Android Auto™1, and MirrorLink®1. Once you plug in your smartphone, your favorite apps come to life on the 6.3-inch touchscreen. The Fusion doesn’t offer this technological advancement on any trim.

While the choice is ultimately up to you, we at Pohanka VW hope that our 2016 VW Passat vs 2016 Ford Fusion near Baltimore, MD, comparison has helped you decide which midsize sedan is right for you.
