Which Fusion does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
Overall rating4 / 5
The Honda Accord, the Mazda 6 and the Toyota Camry have all either been thoroughly updated or completely redesigned in the last year. They're getting most of the attention this year, and rightly so. But the 2019 Ford Fusion still has enough appeal to make it a respectable choice for a midsize sedan.
Ford has kept its aging Fusion fresh over the years with various updates. This year, for instance, there's slightly updated styling and more standard equipment. We also like most of what Ford puts under the hood. The base 2.5-liter engine is a bit underwhelming, but there are three upgraded engines to choose from, including a turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 that packs a serious punch. On the technology front, the Fusion's Sync 3 infotainment system is one of the better ones you'll find.
Overall, the 2019 Ford Fusion is still a midsize sedan we'd recommend. Whether you're going with the frugal base model or the sporty V6 configuration, there's something for just about everyone.
Trim levels & features
The 2019 Ford Fusion is a five-passenger midsize sedan available in five trim levels: S, SE, SEL, Titanium and V6 Sport. The hybrid and plug-in hybrid (known as the Fusion Energi) are reviewed separately. The base S is reasonably well-equipped, while the SE and the SEL come with a few more creature comforts. The Titanium and the V6 Sport are equipped with all sorts of upgraded features and different engines for added performance.
The base Fusion S comes standard with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine (173 hp, 174 lb-ft), front-wheel drive, a six-speed automatic transmission, 16-inch steel wheels, automatic headlights, a rearview camera, cruise control, air conditioning, a height-adjustable driver's seat, 60/40-split folding rear seats, audio and phone voice commands (Sync), Bluetooth, and a four-speaker sound system with a 4.2-inch center screen, a CD player and a USB port. Also standard is a suite of drive safety aids (Co-Pilot360 Protect) that includes blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision mitigation and lane keeping assist.
The only option available on the S model is Ford's Co-Pilot360 Assist system. It adds dual-zone automatic climate control, an upgraded 8-inch center touchscreen with navigation, Ford's Sync 3 voice controls, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, adaptive cruise control, and two USB ports.
The Fusion SE gets all of the standard equipment on the S plus a turbocharged 1.5-liter engine (181 hp, 185 lb-ft) with automatic engine stop-start to help save fuel, 17-inch wheels, exterior keypad entry, power-adjustable front seats, rear heat ducts, a rear center fold-down armrest, and a six-speaker sound system with satellite radio. It also has the previously mentioned 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the two USB ports and navigation as standard. An optional SE Appearance package adds 18-inch black-painted wheels, special interior trim and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
The Co-Pilot360 Assist option is also available on the SE and adds adaptive cruise control and navigation. The Fusion SE is also available with all-wheel drive, which automatically adds a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine (240 hp, 270 lb-ft), 18-inch wheels, heated front seats and heated side mirrors.
The Fusion SEL builds on the SE by adding LED headlights, keyless ignition and entry, remote ignition, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and driver-side mirror, heated mirrors, driver-seat memory settings, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and an 11-speaker premium sound system. The SEL can also be equipped with the Co-Pilot360 Assist package.
The Fusion Titanium gets all of the SEL's standard features, plus the turbocharged 2.0-liter engine, 19-inch wheels, LED foglights, a rear spoiler, a sunroof, ambient interior lighting, heated and ventilated sport front seats, inflatable rear seat belts, Co-Pilot360 Assist, a premium 12-speaker Sony sound system and HD radio.
If you're looking for a sporty version of the Fusion that still has some top-end features, the V6 Sport starts with features from the SEL and adds a 2.7-liter turbocharged V6 engine (325 hp, 350 lb-ft), all-wheel drive, a different grille, 19-inch wheels, quad exhaust tips, a rear spoiler, adjustable suspension dampers, leather and simulated suede upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, the 12-speaker Sony audio system, an automated parking system for parallel and perpendicular parking, and adaptive cruise control.
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 SE EcoBoost (turbo 1.5L inline-4 | 6-speed automatic | FWD).
NOTE: Since this test was conducted, the current Ford Fusion has received some revisions, including the addition of optional adaptive cruise control across the lineup and the elimination of a couple option packages. Our findings remain broadly applicable to this year's Ford Fusion, however.

Ford Fusion vs. the competition
2019 Ford Fusion
2018 Ford Focus
Ford Fusion vs. Ford Focus
The Ford Focus is a bit like the Fusion's peppy little brother. It's smaller, it comes in both hatchback and sedan form and, much like the Fusion, it has appealing modern tech. The Focus is also less expensive, which will be appealing if you want a lower monthly payment. Read Edmunds' long-term road test of the Ford Focus ST.
Ford Fusion vs. Toyota Camry
The recently redesigned Toyota Camry is one of the vehicles to beat in the midsize sedan segment. It's stylish and comfortable and has an appealing mix of technology and safety features. This newest Camry still offers an optional V6 engine, but the Ford V6 Sport is more powerful. Read Edmunds' long-term road test of the Toyota Camry.
Ford Fusion vs. Honda Accord
The Fusion has its work cut out for it in this matchup. The redesigned Honda Accord is our favorite in the class because of its sharp handling, sleek look and impressive technology features. The Fusion has a lot going for it, but it can come off as somewhat dated in comparison to the newer Accord.
2019 Ford Fusion Sedan for Sale
Even with this year's mild styling update, the 2019 Ford Fusion is a midsize sedan that hasn't changed much on the outside. Most of the updates underneath the skin, however, keep it competitive in a segment with plenty of brand rivalry. The standard Fusion (the hybrid version is reviewed separately) is broken down into five trim levels: S, SE, SEL, Titanium and V6 Sport. Think of the S and the SE trim levels as the base, with the SEL and the Titanium topping the ladder. The V6 Sport model adds a particularly powerful engine along with a long list of standard features and unique styling details.
If you're looking for more bang for your buck, the Fusion S and SE make a good deal of sense. They come standard with items such as a rearview camera, cruise control, air conditioning, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, Bluetooth, smartphone app integration, power front seats, and satellite radio. This year, a suite of driver safety aids are also standard, including blind-spot monitoring and forward collision mitigation.
There's also Ford's new optional Co-Pilot360 Assist system, which adds optional adaptive cruise control even at the base S trim level. Aside from the standard equipment, there's a combination of stand-alone options and packages, many of which are available across multiple trim levels.
Prices for the Fusion will vary based on the trim level you want, the engine you choose (paired with front-wheel drive or available all-wheel drive) and the number of creature comforts to go along with those choices. There are four engines to choose from when you include the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder, and comfort items such as ventilated seats, upgraded leather upholstery and sport suspension can all drive the price up. Compared to rivals, though, that's pretty much the norm. When you put similar trim levels up against competitors, the Fusion is within a few hundred dollars, in either direction, of the segment leaders.
On the upper trim levels, such as the Titanium and the V6 Sport, you'll be paying top dollar for this four-door Ford, but build quality and materials meet or surpass the standards set by many entry-level luxury cars. So, in short, the added price might just be worth it if you're looking to supplant a luxury car with something more unconventional. So whether you're looking for a basic, no-frills version of the 2019 Ford Fusion or a decked-out top-of-the-line version, Edmunds can help you find the perfect one for your garage.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Ford Fusion?
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.
