2014 Ford Fusion S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A) Titanium 4dr Sedan w/EcoBoost (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
I traded in a base model BMW 328i for this Titanium Fusion because I wanted a longer wheel base and a better ride with more amenities. I have driven the car on one road trip that used to kill my body in the harsh riding BMW. There was no comparing the ride quality. I'm not comparing vehicles here just how my body reacts to the different road feel. All I can say is I have no regrets on the switch despite the odd looks from my neighbors and the dealership staff. This car drives every bit as well as my BMW and my VW CC prior to that. It's a bit more substantial than both of them which is exactly what I was after. The handling is tight but not harsh and I love the increased size of the car.
I am a big fan of 2.0 turbo 4 cylinder engines. They provide decent power without too big of a hit at the gas pump. I love the interior of the vehicle that some have described as stark. I see it as high tech. I hate fake wood. I see some Volvo influence inside.
I find the A pillar to be a bit thick and it obstructs vision a little on tight turns. Gas mileage is not as good as I had thought it would be, but not a deal breaker for me. I plan on trying my first tank of premium on my next fill up to see if that helps. Sync w/ My Ford Touch is a bit aggravating and still in need of fine tuning.
2014 Ford Fusion S 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A) SE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
Owned the car for almost 2 weeks now, nothing but good to say about it. Has the 2.0 with the Sport Appearance Pkg. While test driving the car, was surprised at the power this engine has. Quiet inside & very comfortable. Excellent visibility all around & controls placed good. Has over 800 miles on it already, mpg via the dashboard around town has been from 26.5 to 28.0, highway from 31 mpg to 33 mpg with a/c on driving easy. I know the dashboard reads higher from what I have read on the Forums, will write an update at a later time as times goes on regarding gas mileage. BTW, using premium fuel. Have owned 2 Fords before this one, have put well over 100K on each one, sure this one will also.
Styling , comfort, power, good gas mileage for a engine with 240 HP. Placement of controls, visibility, quiet cabin. Still learning all this car has to offer. Large trunk.
The 18 inch tires are a little rougher on the road than the 17 inch ones I test drove, but the handling and road feel makes up for that. That is a choice a person makes, nothing wrong with the car. Very happy with this car so far. Will update after 5000 miles.
