2010 Ford Fusion S

2010 Ford Fusion Review

(5 Stars)  The 2010 Motor Trend Car of the Year

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

The 2010 Ford Fusion has just received a major redesign and these changes have been very well accepted. The Fusion received the 2010 car of the year award from Motor Trend and this speaks volumes about this new sedan and its performance and likeability. The new interior design adds many smart features that will make your time spent inside the car much more enjoyable. This car offers a huge variety of power train and engine options allowing consumers to really build the car that they want very easily. For example the sports model offers a powerful 263 horsepower V-6 engine to make this small sedan really get up and move and then there are smaller engines available that can offer up to 41MPG on the highway.

With such diversity in its offerings this car may be one of the most versatile in all of Fords offerings. The interior design really makes long trips a viable option, but may lack some high end options and upgrades that consumer's want. However, for a midsized 5 seat sedan economically priced under $20,000 the Fusion offers more than enough for most to see the real value it offers.
