If you are in the market for a midsize sedan, be sure to have a look at the 2015 Ford Fusion.
A big strength of the Ford Fusion is that there is a model for everyone. The 2015 Fusion is available with a choice of seven powertrains including two turbocharged and direct-injected EcoBoost engines, a naturally aspirated 2.5-litre, a hybrid and a plug-in hybrid in the Fusion Energi.
To give further choice, more models are available with all-wheel drive in 2015 and you can still get a six-speed manual transmission.
Regardless of which model suits your needs, every Fusion brings with it striking styling that is uncommon in the family sedan market. The exterior would be fitting on an upscale luxury sedan, highlighted by the Aston Martin-inspired grille.
Also, the Fusion compliments its looks with a dynamic experience. Even in the base model the suspension setup provides surprisingly good handling for a family car.
There’s very little to complain about with the 2015 Ford Fusion. But, power hungry customers will note that there isn’t a V6 option and diesel lovers can’t get an oil-burner.
To counter those points, each of the Fusion’s four-cylinder engines is both powerful and efficient. Those seeking horsepower should consider the 2.0-litre EcoBoost producing 240 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. If fuel economy is your primary concern, the Fusion Hybrid returns 49 MPG (5.8L/100km) on the highway. If you’re looking to go one step further, the Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid can travel up to 21 miles (34 km) on electric power alone.
Not to be forgotten, the Ford Fusion’s interior is also very accommodating. There’s plenty of room for four adults, and standard equipment includes manual climate control and Ford’s SYNC wireless communication system with voice control.
