If you're looking for a safe, reliable family sedan that has a bit of an edge in both the styling and handling departments, the 2012 Ford Fusion deserves a test drive. In addition to its numerous
If you're all about modern design and getting the most bang for your buck, the Fusion can't hold a candle to the Hyundai Sonata or Kia Optima. Both cars feature cutting-edge styling and equipm
Thanks to the advanced 6-speed transmission and peppy 4-cylinder engine, even the least expensive 2012 Ford Fusion has ample power to deal with the normal demands of city and highway driving.

"I traded in my Mazda6 for this Fusion, hoping that since they are the same platform, they would have similar driving characteristics. I am truly disappointed. While the Mazda was fun to drive, and got great gas mileage (average 29.6 mpg over 7 years), the Ford is basically just a nice car. It has a good ride, and is the most comfortable car I've owned in this segment. The Fusion words hard at acceleration, without a lot of success. The engine is a bit noisy, and there is no self-shift mode for the transmission. Gas mileage is a bit disappointing as well at 26.1 mpg (exactly on the EPA estimates). Overall, it is a nice car, but simply not fun, or particularly fuel efficient."
