Safety as a High Priority

Whether you’re dropping the kids off at practice, carpooling to work, or making your way through town for date night, you always want to make sure the car getting you there is safe and dependable. While both cars have impressive safety features, the Camry manages to do slightly better in this department.

For example, both cars have extensive airbag protection for you and your passengers. The Camry safety package has 10 airbags that are made up of the following components:

  • Driver and Front passenger Advanced Airbag System
  • Seat-mounted side airbags for the front seats
  • Front seat knee airbags
  • Seat-mounted side airbags for the rear seats
  • Side curtain airbags

The Fusion only has eight airbags.

Two more safety features that are standard in the 2018 Toyota Camry and absent in the Ford Fusion are the energy-absorbing collapsible steering wheel and the engine immobilizer. The collapsible steering wheel reduces the likelihood of injury from the steering column during a collision. The engine immobilizer prevents anyone from starting your Camry without the Smart Key fob.
