Awards

The Ford has made safety a top priority, and it shows: the 2017 Fusion has been named a Top Safety Pick+ by the IIHS and it's earned a coveted 5-star Overall Safety rating from the NHTSA1.

Features

The refinement and luxury of leather seating is a standard feature in the 2017 Ford Fusion, but it's only available as an add-on option in the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu. No more parallel parking jitters - the Rear Parking Aid, standard on the 2017 Ford Fusion, can help guide you into the perfect parking spot, signaling when you're getting too close to the curb, or other cars. Unless you enjoy the parallel parking jitters, in which case, choose the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu, and don't pay extra for the rear parking aid option. The 2017 Ford Fusion's standard sunroof lets the light in on even the gloomiest day. Sadly, the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu's sunroof will cost you extra.

Safety

The 2017 Ford Fusion's active Blind Spot Monitoring System warns you when a vehicle enters your blind spot, a little more peace of mind as a standard feature. Want that extra security on the Malibu? Blind Spot Monitoring isn't standard on the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu, so it will cost you.  If your vehicle begins to drift out of its lane, the Lane Departure Warning System, standard on the 2017 Ford Fusion, will sound an alarm. This extra layer of safety isn't standard on the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu, so if you want it, you'll have to pay extra.  The 2017 Ford Fusion's dedication to occupant safety has earned it the NHTSA's coveted 5-star Overall Crash Rating. 7.

Technical

The 2017 Ford Fusion's all-wheel drive makes it the clear choice for anyone who loves off-roading, or simply staying on the road in slippery conditions.

Usability

No matter what you're stowing, from groceries to gardening gear, the 2017 Ford Fusion's increased storage volume means you'll have more room for all your stuff, from apples to zinnias, and everything in between. Even an increase of just an inch or two in wheel base can mean more stability, and the 2017 Ford Fusion has 1 more of those stability-increasing inches.

Pricing

The 2017 Ford Fusion is so confident in their materials and workmanship, they'll pay for the cost of perforation repairs for 2 years longer than the 2017 Chevrolet Malibu - quite a consideration for drivers who live in climates where corrosion is a risk.
