2012 Ford Fusion Review

(0 Stars)  A version to please everybody.

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
Ford offers a version of the Fusion to meet the needs of almost any mid-size-sedan buyer. For the fuel-conscious consumer, the Hybrid is the obvious choice. Featuring essentially the same powertrain as the one in the Ford Escape Hybrid, it can operate in electric mode at speeds of up to 47 mph. You can really connect with the hybrid experience with the Fusion's unique instrument cluster that can be configured to give instant fuel-economy readouts. For a more dynamic driving experience, the Fusion Sport has a 3.5-liter V-6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, upgraded suspension tuning, and eighteen-inch wheels. Of course, with the Sport you also sacrifice fuel economy, as it delivers just 17/24 city/highway mpg with all-wheel drive. The Fusion is also offered in S, SE, and SEL Trim Levels. Engine choices are a 175-hp four-cylinder and a 240-hp, 3.0-liter V-6. Front-wheel drive is standard on all models, and all-wheel drive is optional on V-6-engined Fusions. The handsome but anodyne exterior features the marque's trademark three-bar grille and wraparound headlamps, and the interior has a contemporary instrument panel, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and comfortable seats. Ford's Sync multimedia system is standard on SEL, Sport, and Hybrid models and optional on the SE. If you go for the base S model, you'll have to do without Sync, which might not be so bad since we've found that it can be confusing and distracting to use while on the road.
