The 2014 Nissan Altima is a nice car, but it just can't hold a candle to the stylish and modern 2014 Ford Fusion. The Fusion offers plenty of high-tech features, fuel efficient EcoBoost engines, and it's a blast to drive. Here at Arlington Heights Ford, we know that the Altima is a nice car, but we know that the Fusion is simply a better choice for most drivers. Here are a few reasons why the Ford is a better choice for most shoppers in the Schaumburg area!

Powertrain Options

The Fusion looks great outside, but the real beauty of the model is under the hood. You can pick from a host of models to meet your needs: a hybrid, an electric model, EcoBoost turbocharged models, and more make up the lineup. The Altima is only available in 2.5L or 3.5L gas powered models. You should choose one of the Fusion models if you're looking for fuel economy-and especially if you're looking for fuel economy and performance! The Fusion is also available with all-wheel drive, an option that's simply not available on the Altima, and a feature that you can appreciate during the winter months.

Interior Space

The Fusion offers more interior space in many directions. You'll find more space front and rear when it comes to shoulder room and hip room, and more room in the back when it comes to head room and leg room. There's also more room in the trunk for your luggage.


The Ford Fusion and the Nissan Altima both offer impressive safety scores. In fact, they both received a five-star overall rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for crash safety. Both also received the best possible Good score in the moderate front, side impact, rear crash, and roof strength tests from the IIHS, and an Acceptable score in the small overlap front test. The Fusion did one better than the Altima because it offers advanced accident mitigation features that the Altima lacks. That's why it receives the new Top Safety Pick Plus rating while the Altima only received at Top Safety Pick rating.
