If you are shopping for a 2019 Ford Fusion, you might be wondering how it compares to similar vehicles in the segment. Let's take a look at how this new four-door-sedan from Ford compares to the 2019 Toyota Camry. While both cars offer many desirable features, you'll quickly discover how the Ford beats the Toyota in safety, warranty benefits, and performance.
A fundamental difference between the 2019 Ford Fusion Titanium and the new Camry is inflatable rear seatbelts. If the Ford detects a collision, the inflatable rear belts deploy. This safety system disperses impact force over a greater surface area of your body to limit head and neck movement, which can help avoid injuries to the spine, neck, and internal organs. This system is not available on the 2019 Camry.
The 2019 Fusion boasts an all-wheel-drive option to deliver maximum traction in snow, ice, and rugged terrain. You won't find an all-wheel-drive option on the new Toyota sedan.
If your new Fusion detects you might be inattentive or falling asleep behind the wheel, it will issue a warning sound. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, drivers who fall asleep at the wheel lead to roughly 100,000 auto accidents per year. These crashes result in about 1500 deaths per year. The 2019 Ford Fusion helps you stay awake and alive. The new Camry does not offer a driver alert monitor.
With roughly twice as many Ford dealerships in the United States as there are Toyota dealerships, finding a local Ford service department is twice as easy when you need warranty repair or routine auto maintenance.
