The car is beautiful, handles really well, and the tech inside is smart and intuitive. Things you'll notice as negatives immediately: 1) brakes are very grabby...surprised no one mentions how potentially dangerous this is. Regenerative brakes to recharge the battery grab pretty hard when depressed beyond lightest touch. This has caused me stop short a few times and my passengers to startle at how sudden the stop has occurred. Very big issue, in my opinion. 2) fuel economy as reported is suspect...very small gas tank (9 gal.) has you filling up at about the same rate as with other cars, albeit you're spending less at each fill up (less space for gas). Not sure the hybrid gas mileage benefit is really a big positive here, and that's why I went hybrid . Some regular cars can get about 38 mpg highway, this car gets 41 mpg highway...is this enough to make you want to go hybrid? Which brings me to 3) acceleration is bad...merging into traffic or accelerating to pass are chores as the engine labors to gain speed. This is a big deal and I should've test driven it more thoroughly, as it is maddening to merge on the highway. That's on me. Overall, good car, not a great car. I went Ford because I've always wanted a Ford, and went hybrid to save $ on my daily super-commute (120 miles/day).
Great Comfort
Firas , 4/22/2018
Driven a fusion on two very long trips and was a very comfortable and convenient ride; loved the car and willing to lease one.. Not super performance but it’s enough to have a safe overtaking..
Platinum Package

I chose the 2018 Fusion because of my experience with my 2011Fusion. The ride is very quiet and the performance is responsive. The interior is very comfortable and the instrument panel clear and easy to access. I give the 2018 Fusion five stars.
Performance better than claimed.
Sree, 5/16/2018
This is a good car for the money. Performance is very so far. I have done about 1500 miles in about a month. I would recommend this car. However Ford can improve gas mileage with some modifications.

More about the 2018 Ford Fusion Hybrid

The 2018 Ford Fusion Hybrid marries the versatility of the family friendly midsize sedan with a fuel-sipping electrified powertrain. Like most Fords, the Fusion Hybrid is offered in several trim levels, from a budget-friendly option with modest creature comforts to a luxurious offering with all the bells and whistles. In between are two trims with a dizzying number of features packages and additional options.

The 2018 Ford Fusion Hybrid is available in four trims: S, SE, Titanium and Platinum. The S sets the stage with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine/electric motor combo that it shares with the rest of the Fusion Hybrid lineup. It's modestly equipped for the price, with standard features including a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, a USB port and a nine-speaker audio system. The SE offers better value. For just a few dollars more, you get power front seats, satellite radio and a rear armrest. It also lets you choose from several option packages should you want to bolster your Fusion Hybrid with additional features.

There's a significant price bump to the Titanium, though this trim includes several of the SE's packages. Choosing the Titanium also equips the Fusion with sport front seats, ambient interior lighting and a 12-speaker Sony audio system. Both the SE and Titanium can be equipped with a suite of driver assistance technologies and additional luxury features.

Spring for the range-topping Platinum and you'll get everything above plus a power-adjustable steering wheel and upgraded leather upholstery that wouldn't look out of place in its upscale Lincoln sibling, the MKZ Hybrid. With that in mind, it's worth noting that the Platinum is slightly more expensive than the base version of the MKZ Hybrid, but the Ford is equipped with far more features at that price level.

Compared to other hybrid sedans, the Fusion S is less expensive than rivals' base models, while the Platinum is pricier than just about every other top-level competitor (though materials quality is arguably superior to others). The Fusion Hybrid's weaknesses are mostly limited to middling performance and just-average fuel economy estimates. If you're like us and believe the 2018 Ford Fusion Hybrid's strengths more than make up for its shortcomings, use the robust shopping tools provided by Edmunds to build and find your perfect car.
