The 2013 Ford Fusion isn’t just a stunner – it is arguably the most beautiful mid-size sedan current available…period. And the good graces don’t start and end with its amazing looks, as the 2013 Fusion also offers five different engine options which are all more fuel-efficient that the predecessors.
So far, the 2013 Ford Fusion has managed to live up to its name in tremendous style, with the automaker having put together an unrivalled package of quality and value. It now remains to be seen how the consumer public will react and how the 2013 Fusion will fair against its biggest rivals, including the Nissan Altima, the Honda Accord and the long-time leading Toyota Camry.
Ford clearly went to town on the design element of the 2013 Fusion, in an attempt to break away from a midsize segment that has become in some instances entirely mundane and uninspiring. Along with taking home the kind of looks you’d have traditionally thought reserved for an Aston Martin, Ford is offering three four-cylinder engine options for the new Fusion, along with a hybrid and a future plug-in hybrid launch planned for early next year.
Perhaps the only downside is that the V6 version has been excluded altogether by Ford, but this was never close to the favorite for the midsize demographic where value for money and “sensible” quality generally rule. Buyers are more bothered about how far they can get on a tank of gas today, but on the other hand the 2013 Fusion isn’t what you’d call shy and retiring.
Even the base model which is retailing for $22,495 serves up 175BHP and has estimated fuel-economy of 34MPG highway and 33MPG city – a far cry from base-level midsize sedans of old.
