2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
My first Ford in 40 years of buying cars. I am getting 34 MPG on short trips of 3 miles or less. 44 MPG on local trips on roads with 25-55MPH speed limits. Performance is surprisingly good with no problems merging etc. Interior is very comfortable and convenient. Leather heated power adjustable seats are worth the added cost. Voice activated navigation with back up camera (should be standard like air bags on all cars for safety) and screen display features is worth the money as well. Car suspension and handling makes driving enjoyable and close to sporty. These Hybrids are eligible for a 1700 federal tax credit too.
Voice activated and touch screen navigation with blue tooth connection. Display of MPG efficiency green leaves, real time MPG gauge with monitor of battery charging etc. is a great way to monitor and maximize MPG.
The trunk is small because it has to accommodate the hybrid battery. But is still adequate for a couple of medium sized suit cases or 5 or 6 bags of groceries.
