The 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid happens to be a hit with the analysts. Even though it remains less fuel-efficient as compared to the 2010 Toyota Prius, critics find it appealing because it looks, drives, rides and handles like an ordinary sedan.

Cars.com has concluded it to be the Best New Car of 2010, telling,

If it wasn’t for the dazzling, customizable gauge cluster in the Fusion Hybrid, it would be difficult for drivers to tell this car packs an extra electrical system under its hood.

This seems to be just the beginning for Ford Hybrid as because it has also bagged Automobile magazine’s All-Star award, MotherProof.com’s Best Hybrid for Families designation and Motor Trend’s Car of the Year along with the rest of the Fusion lineup. Now, let me clarify here, except for some styling differences, the five-passenger Fusion Hybrid is identical to the 2010 Mercury Milan Hybrid and flaunts a base MSRP: $28,180

Here is a brief desciption of the car, as a matter of fact the Ford Fusion Hybrid’s powertrain pairs a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine with an electric motor for a peak 191 horsepower. What’s more much similar to the Prius, the Fusion Hybrid can launch from a stop solely with its electric motor and this is what helps the Ford Fusion Hybrid achieve better fuel economy than any other midsize hybrid car, including the 2011 Toyota Camry Hybrid and also the 2010 Nissan Altima Hybrid, which is known to be available in as low as 9 states. Now, read this one the much hiked Fusion Hybrid’s estimated 41 mpg city/36 mpg highway/39 mpg combined still lacks much behind the Prius’ 51 mpg city/48 mpg highway/50 mpg combined.

Even as the word is spread that the Toyota Prius offers all the passenger room of a midsize car, the Ford Fusion Hybrid happens to be even more roomier overall, with an inch more legroom and 2 inches more hip room in the back seat. The Prius’ hatchback, though gives fusion the same blow, providing nearly twice as much cargo space as offered by the Fusion Hybrid’s 11.8-cubic-foot trunk.

Now here comes a significant drawback which has been mentioned in several of the reviews of the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid, it concerns that the substantial price premium over the 175-horsepower, four-cylinder nonhybrid 2010 Ford Fusion is Base MSRP: $19,695 to $24,655, which the Environmental Protection Agency rates at a respectable 22 mpg city and 31 mpg highway with an automatic transmission and front-wheel drive.

Sara Lacey from the MotherProof.com has written:

At traffic lights, the engine’s starting and stopping was undetectable; there was no loud engine start noise and no lurching as the engine jumped to life. It was impressive.


Now, here is some more information about the car, the Ford Fusion Hybrid’s unique gauge cluster also enlists useful, customizable color displays that remains on both sides of the speedometer that monitor the operator’s driving behavior and encourage more fuel-efficient driving techniques.

The car also retains its prestige for its standard safety equipment: front, side and curtain airbags, antilock brakes, electronic stability control, traction control and rear parking sensors. To add to this there is a backup camera and blind-spot warning system are optional.

The car comes with an 5-star rating for fron and 4-star for rear accidental cases as per government standard norms.
