Fusion vs. Taurus: Which Blue Oval Sedan Is Right for You?

There is no hiding the fact that sedan sales are declining as buyers flock to sport utility vehicles. Nonetheless, there remains a significant number of consumers who buy sedans. At Ford dealerships, customers with a growing family or the need to carry more than one adult passenger will probably conclude that the back seats in the subcompact Fiesta and compact Focus are too small. That leaves the Fusion and Taurus. Both are front-wheel-drive sedans, though all-wheel drive is optional.

The Fusion competes in the midsize class, while the Taurus is a large car. What are their differences and which is the better vehicle? A direct comparison in the areas that are most meaningful to buyers, as scored by U.S. News, will answer that question.
