2018 Ford Fusion

The Ford Fusion is starting to feel like an old friend, but one of those really annoying ones who seem to be good at everything and always look fantastic. That's just as well as the midsize sedan car segment is about as competitive as things get in the auto industry, so let's take a closer look at the 2018 Ford Fusion and see why it's still the model to beat in its class.

Styling


It's hard to believe the Fusion is effectively a design that's been with us now since as long ago as the 2013 model year. From just about every angle, the Fusion looks at a glance like a more expensive car from a prestige manufacturer than the affordable model it really is. The grille and taillights were updated last year to deliver a slightly more modern look, but this is car that still has a strong whiff of something from the British sports car manufacturer Ford used to have under its umbrella until a few years ago. The Fusion is sporty, sleek, and basically as beautiful as it was when this generation was originally launched.

Engines


Within reason, you can pretty much have anything under the hood of the Fusion you could realistically want. The base engine is a 2.5-litre four-cylinder offering 175 naturally aspirated horsepower, while the next rung on the engine ladder is a thoroughly modern 1.5-litre EcoBoost turbo with a healthy 181 horsepower and some impressive fuel economy. Those wanting more power can also have a 2.0-litre four-cylinder EcoBoost that puts out 245 horsepower. But the ace up the Fusion's sleeve is a 2.7-litre EcoBoost V-6 that's becoming an increasingly rare sight in this segment, which puts a very healthy 325 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque at your disposal. If that's still not enough choice for you, the Fusion can also be had with a hybrid or even a plug-in hybrid powertrain.

Trim levels


When factoring in the Hybrid and Energi (plug-in hybrid) models, there appears to an almost bewildering array of Fusion trim levels, but there are basically just five in the standard range. The base version of the Fusion is the S, and from there the range goes onwards and upwards to the SE, Titanium and the Platinum, before the sensational V-6 Sport tops off the range in some considerable style.

Features and equipment


For a mass-market model, you can pay quite a bit of money at the top end of the trim level spectrum of the Fusion family, but there's also fabulous value for money to be had lower down the trim levels. The base S model come standard with: power features, cruise control, air conditioning, a rearview camera, keyless ignition, 16-inch alloy wheels, and a four-speaker AM/FM/CD sound system with a 4.2-inch touchscreen and Bluetooth audio streaming. The SE is perhaps where the real value lies though, as it build on the S specification with the likes of 17-inch wheels, satellite radio, and LED exterior lighting, with the option to upgrade to the turbo-four engines, 18-inch wheels, leather, navigation, Sync 3 infotainment and more.
