Best Hybrid/Alternative Energy Car:
2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid

Previous | Next

In the past few years, Ford has come up with a winning formula for its new products, and it is safe to say the Blue Oval has done it again with the all-new Ford Fusion Hybrid. Now in its second generation, the Fusion Hybrid is slightly larger and substantially more refined than its predecessor. With chiseled good looks, comfortable interior accommodations and class-leading fuel economy, the Ford Fusion Hybrid convincingly wins the 2013 Best Resale Value Award in the hybrid/alternative energy car category.

The Fusion Hybrid's sleek, sophisticated design is a breath of fresh air in a segment notorious for conservative styling. The aggressive front fascia bears a resemblance to the Aston Martin lineup, while exclusive interior and exterior design cues help distinguish the Fusion Hybrid from its conventionally-powered siblings. Step inside, and Ford's newfound commitment to quality and craftsmanship becomes immediately evident.

Of course, the Fusion Hybrid's primary claim to fame is its new 4-cylinder Atkinson-cycle powertrain, which delivers one of the smoothest transitions between gas and electric power of any current hybrid system. And with an impressive 47 combined mpg rating from the EPA, the Ford Fusion Hybrid is the most fuel-efficient sedan on the market.

Despite numerous improvements, the all-new 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid shaves $1,500 off the outgoing model's base price, opening just under $28,000. Better yet, the Fusion Hybrid's solid 5-year residual values top formidable hybrid challengers like the Toyota Camry Hybrid and Honda Civic Hybrid.
