Which Fusion Hybrid does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
Overall rating7.9 / 10
Even though small crossover SUVs are now a go-to choice for many families, midsize sedans still enjoy some advantages. One of the perks is the widespread availability of fuel-sipping hybrid models. The 2019 Ford Fusion Hybrid is a good example. It combines the sleek look and surprisingly dynamic handling of the standard Fusion with a more efficient powertrain that's good for 42 mpg in combined city/highway driving.
The current-generation Fusion Hybrid has been around for a while, but Ford has been updating it throughout its life cycle to keep it fresh. Standard on every Fusion Hybrid is Ford's excellent Sync 3 infotainment system. It comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and is intuitive and easy to use. Slight exterior restyling this year also helps differentiate 2019 models from previous Fusion Hybrids.
It's true that some other rival hybrid sedans post slightly higher fuel economy. The Accord Hybrid, for example, gets 47 mpg. As a total package, though, the Fusion Hybrid continues to be one of the best.
2019 Ford Fusion Hybrid configurations
The 2019 Ford Fusion Hybrid is a front-wheel-drive midsize sedan powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine matched to an electric motor (188 total system horsepower). It is available in three trims: SE, SEL and Titanium. Unlike last year, no packages or stand-alone options are offered except a sunroof for SE and SEL models.
Standard features on the SE model include 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, LED daytime running lights and taillights, remote locking and unlocking, exterior keypad entry, push-button ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, rear air vents, adaptive cruise control, an eight-way power driver's seat (with power lumbar adjustment), a six-way power passenger seat, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, two configurable driver information displays and a 60/40-split fold-down rear seat.
Standard technology features include Bluetooth, the Sync 3 infotainment system, navigation, an 8-inch touchscreen, and a nine-speaker audio system with two USB ports, satellite radio, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Safety features include a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, automatic wipers, and Ford's Co-Pilot360 Protect package, which includes automatic high beams, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning and mitigation, and a pre-collision warning system with automatic braking and pedestrian detection.
Upgrading to the SEL adds chrome exterior trim, LED headlights, restyled taillights, remote engine start, auto-dimming rearview and driver-side mirrors, heated mirrors, keyless entry, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, driver-seat memory settings, heated front seats, premium vinyl upholstery and an 11-speaker audio system.
A sunroof is optional for SE and SEL models.
The range-topping Titanium comes with everything above, plus 18-inch wheels, a mesh grille, LED foglights, a rear spoiler, ambient interior lighting, a heated steering wheel, an eight-way passenger seat (with two-way lumbar), ventilated front sport seats, leather upholstery, inflatable rear seat belts, and a 12-speaker Sony audio system with a CD player and HD radio.
Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the Ford Fusion Hybrid Platinum (2.0L inline-4 hybrid | CVT automatic | FWD).
NOTE: Since this test was conducted in 2017, the current Fusion Hybrid has received some revisions, including the deletion of the Platinum model for 2019. However, this rating is almost entirely unaffected by its unique features. Our findings remain applicable to this year's Fusion Hybrid.

Ford Fusion Hybrid vs. the competition
2019 Ford Fusion Hybrid
2019 Ford Fusion Energi
Ford Fusion Hybrid vs. Ford Fusion Energi
Both Ford Fusion variants utilize a hybrid powertrain to reduce gasoline consumption, but the Energi can be plugged in to give it a greater all-electric driving range. With a fully charged battery, the Energi can drive up to 21 miles under electric power before the engine kicks on. Only available in the Titanium trim, the Energi is pricier than the Hybrid in an overall sense, but it's not much more expensive than a similarly equipped Hybrid.
Ford Fusion Hybrid vs. Toyota Prius
The Fusion Hybrid and Toyota Prius go about their duties in much different ways. The Fusion Hybrid is a more traditional sedan, offering a roomy back seat and a large trunk. It also has a more intuitive infotainment system that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. On the other hand, the Prius offers greater utility because of its hatchback body style. It's much more fuel-efficient than the Fusion Hybrid, too.
If you'd like to find out more about the current-generation Toyota Prius, read Edmunds' long-term road test of the Toyota Prius.
Ford Fusion Hybrid vs. Honda Accord Hybrid
Fully redesigned just last year, the Honda Accord Hybrid has a fresher design than the aging Fusion Hybrid. The Honda's base price is lower, but pricing matches up more closely with the Fusion as you move up to the more expensive trims. The exception is the Accord's top-level Touring trim, which provides some extra features that aren't available on the Fusion.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Ford Fusion Hybrid?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
