2013 Ford Fusion Winter Gas Mileage Test

For Ford delivered two vehicles hybrid drivetrains and some high fuel economy For many drivers it is very to see how much winter will the fuel consumption numbers of Ford Fusion Hybrid.

The Hybrid, unlike the C-Max compact hatchback, is a four-door sedan aimed right at the of a high-volume market segment.

for the Fusion lineup include the Camry, Honda Accord, Sonata, Chevrolet Malibu, and Altima.

The first three all hybrid models, the Malibu has its Eco variant, and there s an Altima coming in a year or two.

47-mpg EPA rating

The EPA ratings for the Fusion Hybrid are 47 mpg combined, both city and highway coming in at that same 47

We were eager to drive the Hybrid to see if it achieved better gas results than the C-Max, which it shares a powertrain and seems to return 35 to 39 mpg for most

The Fusion Hybrid weighs as much as the C-Max, but it s longer and more aerodynamic, so we expected it to do better.

It didn t.

On our usual cycle, covering 244 miles time about two-thirds and one-third city and suburban our Fusion Hybrid test car 36.8 mpg.

And we also noted that our car told us its lifetime gas mileage, 8,370 miles to date, was an worse 34.7 mpg.

of temperature

We did our test with temperatures in the thirties, about 10 higher than our 8-day winter driving test the long New Year s holiday

Ford has argued that temperatures reduce battery and real-world gas mileage from its will rise in the summer.

s a fair point we saw a 2- to 3-mpg in the now-discontinued Ford Escape or about 10 percent of that car s combined rating but it certainly t explain all of the Fusion Hybrid s shortfall.

We wonder whether summer over the same route rise to perhaps 40 or 41 mpg, and we to repeat our tests this to find out.

Overall, we ourselves disappointed with the Hybrid s gas mileage but impressed by it as a car

As we ve said before, we think the Fusion lineup offers models of a great car. It won the Best Car To Buy 2013 award our sister site, The Car Connection.

But the hybrid Fusion does not to be a 47-mpg car.

The average of the gas reported by 45 Fusion Hybrid on the EPA s FuelEconomy.gov website is 39.0

Based on not only our test but dozens of reader comments and hundreds of forum posts, the Ford Fusion Hybrid to deliver 35 to 40 mpg in real-world use.

If you re a hybrid mid-size sedan, you absolutely drive the new Fusion
