Luxury hybrid for $1000's less
David M., 5/9/2017
My previous car was a 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid SE with safety options. In 4 year, I put over 80K miles on that car, averaging 44mpg over the entire period of ownership. It was practically a no-brainer when it came time to replace it, to get another Fusion Hybrid. Before making the purchase, I compared it to the Accord Hybrid, Sonata Hybrid, Malibu Hybrid and Camry Hybrid. After all of the shopping, there was no question in my mind which vehicle to buy - the Fusion Hybrid. I didn't care for the blind spot camera system in the Accord; the Sonata's fuel economy was nowhere near as good as the Fusion; the build quality and the styling of the Malibu was far below the other cars tested; and the interior of the Camry was noticeably poor compared to the Fusion. This year (2017), Ford has added the Platinum trim. This trim is all-inclusive - the only options available on this vehicle were inflatable rear seatbelts, upgraded trunk mats, and I believe optional rims. Standard equipment included premium leather quilted seats, navigation, blind spot monitors, self-parking (parallel AND vertical spaces), leather wrapped steering wheel and leather dashboard, lane departure system, rear camera, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go (a fantastic feature if you drive in traffic!), Apple Play, spoiler, full LED headlights and taillights, and the list goes on. This is all for approximately $37K before Ford incentives and rebates. In addition, I got 0% financing, and FULL KBB value on the trade-in on my 2013 with 80K miles! I also drove this car back-to-back with a Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, and there was little difference in the quality of the ride between them, but I found the interior of the Fusion to be superior. The ride is quiet and controlled, there is little road noise, and the handling is outstanding. Back seats could be a little larger, but they are fine for anyone less than about 6' or so. Acceleration is fine under all situations except for maybe stoplight drag racing. But if you want to drive like that, you'd be better off getting the Fusion V-6 Sport instead. I have put about 7,500 miles on the car since Dec 2016, and so far am averaging 42mpg, a little below my 2013, but still outstanding. If you are looking for a luxurious, comfortable, reliable and economical sedan with exceptional styling, look no further than the 2017 Fusion Hybrid Platinum. *** UPDATE TO REVIEW *** 11/12/2017 *** My 2017 Fusion Hybrid developed a serious issue with the electrical system. The car kept going into “Deep Sleep Mode”, usually occurring if the car is left idle for more than 14 days. Each occurrence required roadside assistance to come and jump start the vehicle. I was just lucky it never happened on a day when I had an appointment. In late July, after the 6th time the car went into Deep Sleep, I initiated a Lemon Law claim with Ford, who reviewed my repair record, and sent a hybrid specialist to evaluate my vehicle. They provided me with a free rental for the eight weeks that it took to process my claim. The second week of September, I took possession of a brand new Platinum Hybrid, the exact same model as the one it replaced. Every cent I paid towards the original was applied, and my 0% APR loan continued with the balance carried over. Any car can fail, we all stand the chance of getting a “lemon”, but how the manufacturer responds is what makes the difference for me. Ford acted honorably, and treated me with respect throughout the process. The replacement vehicle has about 8500 trouble free miles so far, I am maintaining about 43.5 mpg, but I believe this will improve as the miles accumulate. When I am ready to replace this vehicle, Ford will remain at the top of my list, not only because of the vehicle itself, but because of the company behind the vehicle.
Luxury Sleeper
DONALD GEEZE, 10/22/2016
It was difficult to wrap my mind around a $41K MSRP for a Ford Fusion, even after $3K in discounts. Another $4K in Federal tax write-off for it being a plug-in hydrid brought the actual price down to Earth. Cross-shopped this against the Lexus ES hybrid, Lincoln MKZ hybrid, Accord Hybrid and Avalon Hybrid. The Chevy Volt and Malibu hybrids were eliminated early because they lacked amenities and the seats were hard, as were those of the Hyundai/Kia hybrids. The Fusion Energi Platinum came equipped with every option of a maxed-out Lexus ES, and a lot of options that are not available in the Lexus. The MKZ hybrid is basically the same car for a lot more money, and doesn't come with a plug-in option. The 22 mile electric range is perfect for normal commutes, and in hybrid mode it gets around 41mpg. Active noise cancelling makes it quieter that the Toyota/Lexus hybrids, and the seats are far more comfortable. The driving assists (lane-keeping, braking and adaptive cruise control) are fantastic. Only question is reliability, but it seems very well made, with attention to detail. Down side is Ford dealers in the Southwest seemed clueless regarding hybrids, including the existence of tax incentives. Fusion Energi Platinums are also apparently rare--had to go out of state to find one. Trunk is tiny due to batteries. Update after 6 months: Just changed the oil. Very impressed by the attention to detail in areas that most people never see. In addition, oil filter and drain plugs were actually properly torqued--rare on a new car (including my 2 Lexuses). Only minor gripe is that the interior is a mismatch for the car--it's mostly the same parts as on a $20K Fusion, while the car's features and performance exceed those of a Lexus ES. Lexus ES dash and trim are classy; Fusion's are practical but relatively plain. Ergonomics are the best of any car I've owned. Rotary shifter is superior. Update after a year--no problems except dealer service broke battery terminal. Still impressed by quality and attention to detail. UPDATE: Continue to be pleased with the car after almost 2 years. No mechanical issues. Seats are among the most comfortable at any price. A pleasure to drive.
Great Hybrid

Just recieved my Hybrid and this thing is wonderful. Well appointed, has spunk and no passing problems. The car is the first that is so relaxing, and comfortable and very very very quiet. It actually is more quiet than my wifes Mercedes E class. What I love about this car is just how relaxing and quiet it is to drive. I think Ford hit a home run on this thing. Mine is a 2017 and is averaging 40.1 mpg around town and highway. Stout paint job with just the right amount of chrome. Well done Ford!!!!

Sorry to see Ford is not going to produce this car in the future. Nothing has really changed since my last review except a new head unit was installed and now the problems that we had in the past have disappeared. The car is comfortable to drive, but don't look for performance. This car is geared for high mileage, not performance. It's an OK stop gap until EV's become more prominent.

More about the 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid

Midsize five-passenger sedans are some of the most popular choices among shoppers in the market for a hybrid vehicle. The 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid, priced at the lower end of the class yet offering a host of desirable features, is one that shouldn't be overlooked. With a sleek exterior and a nicely designed, roomy cabin, the Fusion is proof that hybrid vehicles don't have to sacrifice style and comfort in the name of fuel economy.

Along with the rest of the Fusion line, the Hybrid received a number of cosmetic tweaks for 2017, including a slightly wider grille, new headlights and restyled LED taillights. Other changes include the new Ford Sync 3 infotainment system, a rotary transmission selector, standard push-button engine start and updated audio systems. There's also a new, top-of-the-line Platinum trim level with just about every luxury and convenience item available in the Fusion lineup.

Propulsion comes from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine that produces 140 horsepower and 129 pound-feet of torque and combines with an electric motor for a total output of 188 hp. Together these units drive the front wheels through a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Charging for the 1.4-kWh lithium-ion battery pack is boosted through regenerative braking, and a sophisticated engine-control computer switches seamlessly between the two powerplants.

The Fusion Hybrid's refined interior is highlighted by quality materials, comfortable seats and logically placed, easy-to-use controls. A variety of trim levels, as well as options and accessories, facilitate considerable personalization, allowing buyers to enjoy such features as leather seating, a host of technology upgrades, premium audio, Ford Sync 3 with its 8-inch touchscreen and improved interface, and Sync Connect, which facilitates smartphone integration.

On the road, the Fusion Hybrid is smooth and comfortable and tends to be quieter than many of its competitors while still delivering fairly nimble handling for the class. Drivers unfamiliar with regenerative brakes might find them a bit grabby as they make the transition from traditional to regenerative, but compared to earlier hybrid models, they're relatively unobtrusive. Outward visibility to the front is excellent, although the sloping back end will make drivers glad there's a standard rearview camera.

Fuel economy is EPA rated at 42 mpg in combined driving (43 city/42 highway). And in Edmunds testing, the Fusion Hybrid accelerated from zero to 60 mph in a respectable 8.5 seconds, which is about average for its class.

The base Fusion S comes very well equipped with such features as dual-zone climate control, automatic headlights and a sound system with CD player, while the SE and Titanium trim levels add numerous comfort, convenience and technology items. The new Platinum model comes standard with all the features of the other trims, plus such upgrades as glove-soft Venetian leather on the heated and cooled seats, a power-adjustable steering wheel and a host of the latest driver-assist technology. Whatever your preference, let Edmunds help you find the 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid that best meets your needs.
