We're ready to show you how the Jetta can compare to the Fusion in ways that matter to you the most.

Performance & Efficiency

In the Ford Fusion, you'll get a standard 2.5L i-VCT Engine that delivers up to 175 horsepower at the expense of fuel economy. We know that drivers today are more interested in saving at the pump, which is why the Volkswagen Jetta stands out as a favorite. The Fusion offers a 1.5L EcoBoost Engine with Auto Start-Stop Technology that still doesn't offer as much fuel economy as the Jetta's engine does.


Both of these sedans offer the option of a smartphone-compatible system to help you unlock your doors, flash your lights, or remote start your engine, if equipped. For the Ford Fusion, you'll spend more even at the base trim level than you will for the Volkswagen Jetta. Both of these models also offer you the option to equip leather-trimmed seating surfaces, however, the Jetta won't cost you as much for this feature as the Ford Fusion will.
