There's a hybrid version that gets better city fuel economy than the upcoming Sonata hybrid.
Edmunds


With high four-cylinder fuel economy and an available Hybrid option, the Ford Fusion lineup is among the greenest family sedans available.

The gas-only versions, however, settle more into the middle of the pack, since Ford's V-6 engine option drops to 17/24 mpg when it's paired with an automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

That's the heaviest, least efficient Fusion you can buy; happily we can report that front-drive, four-cylinder Fusion sedans with Ford's excellent six-speed automatic are rated as high as 33 mpg on the highway, and we've experienced more than 30 mpg in daily use for these versions.

In the Fusion Hybrid, city fuel economy of up to 41 mpg is possible, according to the EPA. Ford's system is tuned to deliver better gas mileage on the city cycle, whereas other hybrids--like the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid--is engineered to get better highway fuel economy. Knowing your driving styles and driving habits can make a large difference in overall fuel economy, as early as the first showroom visit.

Conclusion

The 2011 Ford Fusion is the green buyer's choice among the domestic family sedans, with a Hybrid edition and great four-cylinder fuel economy.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
