2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid: Nice Seats, Odd Storage Compartment

So I finally got some seat time in our Fusion Hybrid and I'll admit that I was pleasantly surprised with the new sedan, mostly because it doesn't really feel much like a hybrid. Now I know most hybrid buyers will feel cheated if they don't hear the whir of the electric motors, but as far as I'm concerned, the closer this car is to a regular Fusion the better.

Two other things also jumped out at me. One, the seats are above average for a car like this. Not only because they feel nicely bolstered, but they also have that fancy white stitching down the sides. Nice.

The other thing that caught my eye was the dashboard storage bin. Kind of an odd shape, no? Not sure what might fit in there, but in my experience most people don't use them anyway. Maybe that's just me. Nice car though, I think I'm going to like it.
