The 2018 Fusion S is also slightly larger than the 2018 Altima S, boasting a width of 72.9 inches along with a height of 58.2 inches. When you look at the size of the 2018 Nissan Altima S, you'll find that it has a width of 72 inches along with a height of 57.8 inches. If you are looking for a larger vehicle with more cargo room for whatever it is that you want to carry around, then you should probably roll off of the sales lot with a 2018 Ford Fusion S instead of the 2018 Nissan Altima S.

The 2018 Ford Fusion S is also outfitted with a standard navigation system that the 2018 Nissan Altima S doesn't possess at this trim level. The engine of the Fusion and the engine of the Altima are extremely similar, but while the Altima's engine is paired with a continuously variable-speed automatic transmission, the Fusion features a six-speed shiftable automatic transmission. Another difference between the two vehicles is the fact that this version of the Altima rides on steel wheels, while the Fusion is equipped with alloy wheels. If the aesthetics of your vehicle are close to your heart, keep in mind that this Fusion has more exterior color options than this Altima and has double the interior color options as well. So come get in the driver's seat of a 2018 Ford Fusion S today and see if this is the perfect midsize sedan for you.
