2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
We purchased the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid in September 2009. We've been a Honda family since 1991 and were initially leaning toward a 2009 Honda Accord EX-L. The Honda dealership was across the street from Ford so we decided to check out the Fusion Hybrid since we heard it was nice car. Once we drove it we were sold. Great ride--super handling, quiet, solid feel. The biggest advantages over the Accord were the high tech features. The navigation system, SYNC, and blind spot awareness system are fantastic and either weren't offered or simply were nicer than Hondas. Mileage has come in at 38.5 so far in combined driving. I'm really impressed by Ford now. Amazing car...
Great ride--you don't even notice the transition between hybrid electric and the gasoline engine. The navigation with SYNC is extraordinary. Voice activation system is fun to use and the navigation systems displays everything from fuel prices to the weather. It isn't cheap, but we love it!
Wish they could make the trunk space larger. Batteries are behind the back seat and eat up roughly 12 inches of trunk space. Maybe batteries could be moved under the trunk in future design, but it is adequate for most of our needs.
