If you're in the Annapolis, MD area and find yourself in the market for a dependable and stylish family sedan, two vehicles you should consider are the 2016 Nissan Altima and the 2016 Ford Fusion. Both are great choices for 2016, but which has the features that you are looking for in a new car purchase?

Interior and Technology

The 2016 Nissan Altima provides extremely comfortable front seating with ample legroom and headroom. Many feel it has one of the best interiors in its class. Low interior noise, user friendly infotainment controls, sleek and classy design, and extremely comfortable front seats give it the edge when it comes to interior. It comes standard with cloth upholstery, and is impressive with its materials and build quality. The Ford Fusion is stylishly designed and attractive, although it is not quite as sound proof as the Altima, and it has numerous confusing buttons, controls and infotainment system.

Although both come standard with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine, the Nissan Altima not only edges out the Fusion in power with 182hp, but surprisingly does much better in the fuel efficiency category with 27/39 mpg city/highway. With agile handling, precise steering and strong brakes, both choices deliver solid performance for a family sedan.


The Altima scored slightly better in the safety category, although both definitely have above average results based on crash test standards. One of the main cons with the Fusion is the poor rear visibility.
