2012 Ford Fusion Fuel Economy

Fuel Economy

The 2012 Ford Fusion isn't the highest-mileage of the mid-size sedans in non-hybrid form, but the Fusion Hybrid stands among the greenest sedans available at any price.

Front-wheel-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; unfortunately, V-6 models aren't nearly as good, at 18/27 with front-wheel drive or just 17/25 with all-wheel drive.

Green buyers have choices, in either the fuel-efficient four-cylinder models of the 2012 Ford Fusion or in the 41-mpg Ford Fusion Hybrid.

With an EPA city rating of 41 mpg, the 2012 Ford Fusion Hybrid delivers its best in congested commuting conditions (while other hybrid systems like the one in the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid tend to do better on the highway) and is simply one of the greenest sedan picks on the market.
