The Car Connection Expert Review

The 2011 Ford Fusion comes in a few finely developed flavors; Sport, Hybrid and base are a few of the best tastes.

The Ford Fusion has it all figured out. It's setting sales records even as it hits middle ago, and it's picked up not a little bit of the green sheen that Toyota and Honda have layered on even their least fuel-frugal four-doors.

The Fusion does it with a canny mix of American style and global-think green-ness. There's no mistaking its brash chrome-barred grille as anything but pure Detroit--even while its downsized and hybridized four-cylinder engine turns in faultless city fuel economy on a par with Honda's hybrids.

The four-door Fusion sits at the smaller end of the American family-sedan spectrum, which means it's a bit less spacious than vehicles like the Malibu and Accord. It's a keeper anyway, since the seats are ample and well-shaped.

The smallness helps the Fusion feel more alive than either of those larger sedans, anyhow. Its electric power steering is tuned for fun along with fuel economy, and it rides with the carefully judged responses of a more expensive vehicle.

There's a flavor of Fusion for most any tastes, but the base four-cylinder car is a pretty faultless commuter choice. The Sport brings with it the better of the two optional V-6s. The Fusion Hybrid? It's nearly in a class of its own, though Hyundai's competitive, and quite sexy, Sonata also offers a Hybrid that turns in 40-mpg fuel economy (highway, instead of city, in this case).

I've owned this car since new and after 103,000 miles it is still tight, runs well, and has been completely trouble-free. I have not touched the MPG monitor in many months and it shows 32.1 today. The car does... + More »
