Ford 2012 Fusion Review

Ford 2012 Hybrid

The Ford Fusion has around since 2009 it was released as a 2010 model.  At the it was state-of-the-art, getting better than the Camry hybrid at the same price and with competition (the Accord was available but had few takers).  What a a couple of years can make.

  has improved the Camry in almost way and Hyundai (and its Kia division) their own hybrid sedans maybe aren’t as good as the but are a lot cheaper, leaving the Fusion out in the

The Fusion hybrid is not a bad car by any means, just isn’t anything to it stand out.  Much the Hyundai Sonata hybrid, it is a vehicle, but unlike the Sonata it is Without rebates the cheapest hybrid is close to $30,000 and s with cloth seats, no GPS and no

  Not to say that the Fusion doesn’t any options, it has some nice such as dual zone control, Microsoft Sync and sensors on the rear bumper to you if you are about to back into It even allows the driver to a door code to unlock the car – I know if this makes up for the of a smart key but Ford seems to it does.  The idea is you can leave car key in the car all the time and then use the door to lock and unlock the car.

  Personally, I prefer the smart key that Toyota and Hyundai use you don’t even have to put the key the ignition (still a necessity the Fusion).

Driving the Fusion is a experience.  The acceleration is good due to the 172 hp of the gas and electric motors, but it can get a little if you need to accelerate quickly.  not under heavy acceleration the is relatively  quiet and road is minimal.

  The steering is nicely and inspires confidence.  Finally, the is solid and the seats are very While by no means a sports the Fusion has ride and handling that remind me of a Volvo; and secure.

What impressed me the most the Fusion is the Sync system by Microsoft.  Sync integrates the car with any Bluetooth enabled and accepts MP3 players such as an using a USB port.  The driver and can use voice commands to control volume, iPad selections, the phone and even get GPS directions.

The biggest problem for the Fusion is its competitors have either up with it, or in the case of the Toyota hybrid, surpassed it.  to the Camry the Fusion’s interior dated.  Where the Camry has almost leather like the Fusion has hard plastic.

  The Sonata hybrid is even than the Fusion when it to hard plastic, but it does a smart key and is roughly $3000

My complaint with the Fusion?  busy, indecipherable gauges.  the exception of the speedometer (a nice, to read analog dial) the for information like radiator battery charge, fuel and miles to empty are either to read, hard to find, or

  To Ford’s credit the display can be to show only what the wants to see, however, you plan on taking a class on how to do the as it is far from intuitive.

The good for fans of the Fusion hybrid is Ford is planning on releasing a updated version in 2013.  estimates it will get 47 mpg and attract a new with its daring styling.  But is in the future.

   For now the Fusion hybrid is a car that seems a bit dated and a over-priced.  I think most will find the cheaper hybrid a better value.

If you any questions about the Fusion feel free to leave a I try to answer questions within often sooner.
