2014 Ford Fusion


The 2014 Ford Fusion vs. the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu

Plainfield and Naperville shoppers in the market for a new midsize sedan that’s outfitted with intuitive amenities, offers a comfortable ride, and delivers responsive handling have likely come across both the 2014 Chevy Malibu and the 2014 Ford Fusion during their search. Here at River View Ford in Oswego, IL, we decided to compare these two popular models to help our customers make an informed purchase.

As it turns out, the new Ford Fusion provides more advanced luxuries and smoother drivability than the new Chevy Malibu.

Premium Accommodations

The 2014 Ford Fusion was clearly designed with passenger comfort and convenience in mind. Below are some standard and available Ford Fusion features that the 2014 Chevy Malibu does not offer:

  • Standard speed-sensitive windshield wipers adjust automatically; the new Malibu’s variable intermittent wipers must be adjusted manually.
  • Optional air conditioned driver and front-passenger seats provide relief during the warm summer months for drivers of the Fusion.
  • Active Park Assist helps Ford’s midsize sedan drivers by parallel parking or backing into a space automatically with minimum input.
  • Should you find yourself locked out of the 2014 Ford Fusion, you can use the available exterior keypad to unlock the doors.

The All-Wheel-Drive Difference

Conquering wintery roads with poor traction is a breeze with the 2014 Ford Fusion. Not only does it come with standard drift compensation steering to automatically adjust your course if you lose control, the new Ford Fusion also gives you the option of all-wheel drive in order to achieve optimal traction during slippery road conditions. The 2014 Chevy Malibu does not come with drift compensation steering, and all-wheel drive is not an option. This means that navigating particularly slick terrain and maintaining traction will likely be more difficult with the new Malibu.
