The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Ford Fusion Hybrid scores with its deft hybrid integration, and for preserving so much of the Fusion's basic goodness. The basics don't have to be boring: the 2012 Kia Optima evades design and driving boredom with suave looks, good performance and great gas mileage and features.
