Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
The Ford Fusion has been revamped for 2013 with a new design and high-tech safety features such as adaptive cruise control. Two different turbocharged 4-cylinder engines replace the V6 choices in previous models, and a plug-in hybrid called the Fusion Energi joins the regular Hybrid model, which is now rated at 47 mpg.
HD Radio is now available, as are rain-sensing wipers, "MyKey" programmable vehicle key and two new equipment groups: Luxury and Comfort. Integrated blind-spot mirrors are now standard on Fusions not equipped with the Blind Spot Information System (BLIS).
A thorough revamp imparts new character to Ford's mid-size Fusion Sedan with cleaner styling, greater refinement, improved vehicle dynamics and upgraded powertrain combinations that boost both performance and fuel economy. An enthusiast-oriented 263-horsepower Sport variant also joins the lineup.
More content marks the major changes to the 2009 Ford Fusion with SEL trims getting standard ambient multi-color lighting and SIRIUS Satellite Radio. Ford's AdvanceTrac electronic stability control is made optional on all trims, while cars without the SYNC audio system receive an auxiliary audio input jack.
Now in its fifth year as Ford's point player in the heavily-populated mid-size sedan segment, the Fusion receives a major makeover for 2010 aimed at raising its profile and competitive status against key rivals like the Chevrolet Malibu, Nissan Altima and Toyota Camry. Beyond formidable changes to the conventional lineup (Fusion S, SE, SEL and Sport, reviewed separately) the biggest news is the arrival of the first- ever Fusion Hybrid. Packing the latest and most potent gas/electric package in Ford's history, the 2010 Fusion Hybrid balances impressive performance with excellent creature comforts and mileage marks that simply blow hybrid versions of the Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima and Chevy Malibu into the weeds. It's a car destined to remain highly appealing regardless of where the price of gasoline ultimately ends up.

"I have owned the new 2013 Fusion since it was realeased back in September 2012. I do a lot of highway driving and seem to get about 32-35 mpg on the highway. My overall average mpg is about 26, but that because I cant help but rip into the floor boards with my pedal every once in a while. I have the 1.6 Turbocharged Inline 4 in my fusion, its more than enough power to get you off that line in front of a lot of other people. If you want a flashy, sexy, comfortable, stylish, clean, quick car at a good price.... Buy a 2013 Ford Fusion... I'm certainly not looking back."

"BEST FEATURES: The 2.0T Ecoboost is superb; the same motor as in the 2013 Jaguar XF and Volvo XC-60. I am getting 24 mpg in mixed driving. The Fusion is the quietest, smoothest-riding sedan I have ever owned (including a Volvo S-80, Volvo 960 and Honda Accord). The leather seats in SE trim are a little different design than in the Titanium; so check them both out. I bought my Fusion SE with the 2.0-liter turbo and Equipment Group 205A (Luxury Package). That combination includes most of the Titanium features as a lower cost. WORST FEATURE: The sound quality of the Ford Sirius radio is a surprising disappointment. The six-speaker audio system is excellent on CD / USB modes, and very good on FM. But the Fusion satellite radio sounds tinny and flat. I have listened to XM for many years on an after-market Commodore satellite radio in my Volvo, so I know what Sirius-XM should sound like. If the dealer can’t fix this, I will not renew free 6-month Sirius subscription. Satellite radio aside, I am happy with my purchase. The Fusion is a refined, very satisfying car to drive. I suggest that any buyer test one and see for yourself."

"First off let me say I really wanted a Mustang, but the climate in my area, gas prices, and unusable space made me think otherwise... This car is every bit as attention getting as the Mustang, far more practical, great gas mileage, loaded with features that were only available in high end luxury cars just a couple years ago! My car is the Titanium Model with all the trimmings, and after 5,000 miles of seat time, I'm very pleased with the complete package. I did NOT want to drive an average appliance car (i.e Accord or Camry), The Fusion is fun to drive, handles amazing for the size of the car, gets good gas mileage (28 mpg average to date) and acceleration is brisk with the 2.0L engine. The Technology is amazing. My Ford Touch has come a long way since it was first released, a solid recommendation now. If you want an appliance, buy an Accord or Camry, if you want something with great looks and driving dynamics, get this car. You won't be disappointed!"
