In a class generally known for bland styling and a lack of driving excitement, the Ford Fusion is like a fresh, charismatic newcomer. But also like some promising and talented celebrities, it has just enough quirks to erode your enthusiasm. The Fusion looks upscale and stylish and handles like a really good European sports sedan. We bought three versions: a top-trim Titanium, a mid-trim SE, and the SE Hybrid.

What Owners Say

"acceleration and handling"

Anonymous, CA (2013 Ford Fusion)

"The acceleration and handling are very good for a family sedan. There is plenty of power to accelerate quickly when passing."

Zoran W., MS (2013 Ford Fusion)

"Powerful for a FOUR CYLINDER engine. Really well engineered. The ride is super comfortable. Only downside is knowing where the car fits with surroundings."

Anonymous, NC (2013 Ford Fusion)

"Acceleration is weaker than expected."

Anonymous, QC (2013 Ford Fusion)

"Rear shocks are weak, likely they are the same as the non-hybrid car, and don't control the extra weight of the batteries in the trunk. The exhaust sound, when going up steep grades, sounds very agricultural"

Jack H., BC (2013 Ford Fusion)

"It has been a good, reliable car that gives a very nice ride."

Richard G., PA (2013 Ford Fusion)

"They are great: responsive, powerful, controlled. Holds road well."

Anonymous, PA (2013 Ford Fusion)

"The driving feels tight and responsive and it hugs the road and curves. For a larger sedan, it feels much more sporty than others we considered and has better acceleration."

Cathryn E., WI (2013 Ford Fusion)

"Handles like a sports car"

Craig T., MO (2013 Ford Fusion)

"For a family style car, the handling is better than expected. The acceleration is adequate for a hybrid but its nothing to get excited about."

S R., CA (2013 Ford Fusion)

"We still enjoy driving a hybrid and enjoy the challenge of getting the highest MPG."

Mary S., LA (2013 Ford Fusion)

"It moves right out when I need to and is a comfortable car to ride in"

Anonymous, CA (2013 Ford Fusion)

"Handling is as good or better than I need it to be. With the right foot planted, it accelerates quite well, but at lower speeds, the CVT makes the car feel a bit disconnected. The hybrid system mitigates this somewhat compared to non-hybrid CVT cars I have driven. The A-pillars are way too wide. I need to dart my head back & forth to see around them too often."

Richard G., QC (2013 Ford Fusion)

"Very quick for a hybrid, it drives like a eurosport sedan, I enjoy my commute in the car. It looks good on the outside and is nicely appointed on the inside.."

Anonymous, CA (2013 Ford Fusion)

"Good - The 2.0L Turbo has enough power for this car to get up to speed nice and quick. Handling is good, feels very secure on the road. Bad - Transmission is poor in two specific ways: 1) On acceleration from a stopped position, if you do not give it enough gas, the automatic transmission struggles to shift smoothly out of first and second. I have never This is a ford thing, as I have not experienced this with any other make. 2) When in high gear, doing 100+ kph, if you hit the accelerator hard (ie. to pass), the transmission responds with a large clunk which jars the vehicle, before it gives you some power. This is scary at first and frustrating after. This is the only major negative with my fusion, and it may just be my specific car, but I would be hesitant to buy another Fusion (or similarly equipped Ford) because of this issue."

Anonymous, ON (2013 Ford Fusion)

"The 2.0L turbo engine offers plenty of power when needed."

Aubrey J., CA (2013 Ford Fusion)

"Acceleration is very impressive from a stop, highway passing is also very impressive. The hybrid system works very well and adapts to driving habits. Highway mileage does suffer due to the engine having to run for longer periods, mountain passes especially. City driving with the hybrid system is flawless, however different driving habits need to be leaned, for the better to attain maximum fuel saving. Handling is better than expected, not a sports car by any means but provides positive feedback while cornering and is predictable with inputs through the steering wheel."

Kelly W., BC (2013 Ford Fusion)

"FUSION IS TUBO CHARGED AND PROVIDES EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE"

Anonymous, VA (2013 Ford Fusion)

"Handling is great, seems exceptional for a family sedan. Acceleration with the 1.6L “ecoboost‿ engine is underwhelming but gets the job done."

"When you need some passing speed the turbo charging system can give you an extra 15-20mph in a couple of seconds."

"Really good road grip, comfortable steering. Plenty of power for highway cruising and passing"

Salim H., BC (2013 Ford Fusion)

"I bought this car for the fuel economy. Initially rated at 47 mpg, Ford adjusted the mpg to 42 and compensated us for the expected additional expense. That was a disappointment , but Ford handled it well. The car has exceeded all other expectations. While not quick by any means, it is a quiet, comfortable road trip cruiser and more than able commuter. And for a car this solid and large, 42 mpg is a not a bad result."

Mark M., OR (2013 Ford Fusion)

"Fast acceleration than my v-8s"

Anonymous, FL (2013 Ford Fusion)

"Very good handling and good acceleration."

Jay M., MI (2013 Ford Fusion)

"The larger engine allows great acceleration and handling; however, it does have a blind spot when backing up"

Julie K., WA (2013 Ford Fusion)

"Even with a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine, our Fusion is zippy (how do we judge zippiness? We have a hotrod with 450 horsepower and are still impressed with the Fusion's responsiveness) and the handling feels as good as my friend's BMW."

Phill L., CA (2013 Ford Fusion)

"Considering the engine is only 1.6l, albeit turbocharged, the acceleration and power are very impressive. Even more impressive is the car's handling on twisty hilly valley roads."

"The car has stalled twice now. Everything goes dead. I have to stop, put it in park, and restart the car."

SUSAN F., OK (2013 Ford Fusion)

"The acceleration and throttle response are outstanding - amazing power and smoothness from a four cylinder."

SCHLOTZ J., CA (2013 Ford Fusion)

"I originally was looking for a hybrid, but when I experienced the power of the 2 liter turbo, I knew that was a trade off worth making. Handling is better than other makes I've rented, or had rides in..."

DAVID R., AZ (2013 Ford Fusion)

"Easy to drive"

JULIE K., WA (2013 Ford Fusion)

"Visibility through rear window is limited"

Anonymous, CA (2013 Ford Fusion)

"This 2.0L I4 GDTI engine is very strong and peppy. Plenty of acceleration from a stop and for when passing. However, from a stop, rapid acceleration has a tendency to pull hard to the right. Not a huge issue if you are actively driving with both hands on the steering wheel. But the first couple of times it happens it can be surprising, so be engaged."

Anonymous, OH (2013 Ford Fusion)

"The ENERGI plug in electric has been eye opening how well an all electric power train can work. Most days I use no fuel at all, and pay no penalty in any other aspect of normal driving. The small truck can have moments that its annoying, but thats what we have a small SUV for."

BRIAN D., OR (2013 Ford Fusion)

Michael A., ID (2013 Ford Fusion)

"It rides very smoothly and has a relatively quiet interior. Acceleration is very good and so smooth that you can think you are doing 30-45 mph and look down and find you ate speeding at 60"

Maria O., NC (2013 Ford Fusion)

"Poor acceleration. Hesitates, car does not respond to accelerator. Press hard on accelerator, but the car takes seconds to begin moving faster. It revs the engine, then a second later slams into a lower gear. Very harsh. Break pedal is very sensitive. Hard to make smooth stops at all speeds. Engine randomly turns off soon after putting car in gear."

This leads me to believe that 16inch all-seasons would ride even better. The engine drone is a little elevated due to the CVT, but accelerating on battery alone is joyful. I wish it could stay on battery longer. Ford has an issue with seat design. This car, as well as my mother's 2013 Fiesta has seats that are too narrow and have side bolsters that are too high.

Styling

How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say
