So far, we're very pleased with our Bordeaux Reserve Red Metallic Fusion with the Light Stone Leather interior.
Color in and out is stunning.
175hp 4cyl powerplant is more than adequate for my daily needs, and it's very rev-happy.
Passing power is like a V6.
Mileage is 28+ before break-in.
6-speed auto shifts confidently and seamlessly.
Ambient Lighting and electroluminescent guages are sweet; make the interior look like a Tron Cycle.
Sony stereo is very nice- bass-y enough and clear.
The Fusion handles like a Focus and is the quietest car I have ever owned.
All in all, we are very pleased and look forward to spending the next 10 years or so in its cabin.
