2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid Review

A mid-sized sedan with a 2.5L, 4-cylinder engine and more horsepower than the competition, the Fusion Hybrid gets 39 mpg in combined city/highway driving and runs on unleaded or a combination of ethanol and gasoline. Reviewers approvingly note the cloth seat fabric made of recycled materials, updated styling, and gauge that tracks your eco-driving skills.

Relatively new to the hybrid scene, the Ford Fusion Hybrid (and its sister car, the Mercury Milan Hybrid) is making waves with auto journalists and customers alike. In Ford Fusion Hybrid reviews, this model draws praise from a variety of sources, including HybridCars.com, USA Today, and Cars.com. In customer surveys by expert reviewers, the Ford Fusion Hybrid ranks among the top 10 for owner satisfaction.

The Ford Fusion Hybrid is a mid-sized sedan with a 2.5L, 4-cylinder engine that gets 39 mpg in combined city/highway driving. This model runs on unleaded or a combination of ethanol and gasoline. (Although running E85 ethanol gas reduces the fuel efficiency a bit, it burns cleaner than regular gas.) It is also more fuel-efficient than the Toyota Camry Hybrid and the Nissan Altima Hybrid, which are direct competitors in size and price. Loads of standard safety features, including a blind-spot information system and hands-free 911 assist and structural features such as steel reinforcements that help protect passengers in side impacts, earn the Ford Fusion Hybrid praise from safety experts, including the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

If you prefer the look of a traditional sedan and can afford a slightly higher sticker price, the Ford Fusion Hybrid is a sound choice.
