The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
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. A massive rear seat and better-than-hybrid highway fuel economy mask the slight loss of refinement and nimble road feel in the 2012 Volkswagen Passat.
