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.

Anonymous, IA (2014 Ford Fusion)

"1.5L turbo is too small for the size of the car so it can be sluggish in acceleration but for what the vehicle costs it returns great gas mileage. Car handles outstanding for what it is, a basic 4 door sedan. Fit and finish is excellent, car is solid and smooth, overall a great car"

Kenneth C., NJ (2014 Ford Fusion)

Charles W., MI (2014 Ford Fusion)

"Although it is a hybrid, its acceleration immediate and strong. Hybrid control is very well programmed. So gasoline engine starts and stops smoothly and transparently. Fusion handles and corners like a race car. Brakes stop tenaciously - like throwing out an anchor - but are very controllable. Car does not drive like a hybrid (except for great gas mileage). It drives like an expensive, sporty luxury car (Jaguar comes to mind)."

Richard B., FL (2014 Ford Fusion)

"Recall for clutch pressure plate fracture problem. Recall took time but was well done when parts came in. Left rear shock mount failed and needed to be replaced. Not a recall. Other recalls for stearing wheeel adjustment bolt, coolant level sensor and seatell pretensioner cable. Over all it is a joy to drive with a standard transmission. There are not many of us left."

"It is a family sedan Turbocharged 4 cylinder 6 speed auto. I'm not a pedal masher, I'm not hard on the gas, hard on the brakes. If I HAVE to accelerate quickly (on ramp to blend into traffic) it steps right out gets me there. This car handles extremely well for me from the day we purchased it. It stays where you put it on the highway. A dream compared to our previous 2012 Fusion. It had to constantly corrected for drift to the left and right. After the 3rd alignment it was OK, but never as good as the 2014"

"The Fusions driving dynamics are much better than the Avalon. It rides quieter, smoother, and handles much better in every driving situation. The steering feel is better, as are the breaks. The transition from electric to gas propulsion is as good as it gets in a hybrid. Toyota may have invented the hybrid, but Ford has absolutely schooled Toyota on how to build a proper, world class hybrid. It doesn't end here though. The AC cools quicker in the Fusion and the defroster works much faster"

"I got the plug-in Hybrid Energi and still love it after 4+ years ... looks great (Titanium trimline) and 49.8 mpg over its lifetime. I'd buy it again in a second -- just hope the battery will grow more long-lasting in future models."

Dave B., VA (2014 Ford Fusion)

"Responsive and trouble free on it’s second hundred thousand miles"

Tryg E., AK (2014 Ford Fusion)

"Great car for the money - fit and finish exceeds my $50K Toyota Highlander. Soft interior surfaces, well designed."

Anonymous, TN (2014 Ford Fusion)

"I am very satisfied with the car. There are some areas where Ford should make improvements: 1. There is no method to get fresh air into the car, especially for defrosting, except opening the windows or turning on the climate control system which drains the battery quickly. 2. The voice command system is very frustrating. I don't even try to use it anymore except to make a phone call to Home. 3. I would like a bigger high voltage battery for greater range."

John R., WA (2014 Ford Fusion)

"It seems Ford has had severe problem with the MyTouch power system. They took many weeks to get it working under warranty. Too bad we had no features sor so long. This included some of the safety systems such as the backup camera. Not a very good value if they do not have the ability to fix a known problem on an important system!"

Barry J., OR (2014 Ford Fusion)

"Great features for a very reasonable price. Other vehicles would cost at least $10,000 more for the same features."

"When we bought this one we were looking for something inexpensive but room enough for 4 adults and luggage when traveling. Good sized trunk and reasonable price sold us on this car."

"Fuel economy is very good, interior is very comfortable, style is very pleasing, driving experience is very good."

"Vehicle did not hold it's value, I would have expected to break even at this point but I will lose $3000 at trade."

"Economical, good for its size and value. Ford has come a long way recently. Thanks!"

PRIESTS C., AZ (2014 Ford Fusion)

"The electronic safety features on the Titanium model Fusion exceed those of my well optioned BMWx for a far lower basic cost."

ROBERT S., NC (2014 Ford Fusion)

"TODAY'S CARS HAVE A BUNCH OF STUFF ON THEM THAT THE AVERAGE PERSON WILL NEVER NEED ADDING THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS TO THE PRICE OF THE CAR."

KAREN W., TX (2014 Ford Fusion)

"Thought I paid a fair price when I bought the car new. However, the value of the car plummeted at an absurd rate after my purchase. Upon inquiring with multiple dealers about "trading up" (seeking a 4-wheel drive version for the winter months), we found the car had lost approximately 40% of it's value in less than 2 years. Ouch!"

LONNIE A., UT (2014 Ford Fusion)

"Satisfied thus far. The challenge occurs over time."

Anonymous, TX (2014 Ford Fusion)

"Outstanding value with better resale value than the Avalon, hybrid or no. ALG is the resale bible and I got my on formation from their website. You have to be careful here. Sure, the Avalon has the best resale value in the large car class and the Fusion does not have the best resale value in the mid size class. However, the midsized class is much more competitive than the large car class."

STEVEN W., TX (2014 Ford Fusion)

"Fusions were in short supply when I purchased this vehicle in the end of 2013 - I actually had to buy a 2014. Today I could purchase the same vehicle for $4000 less"

Styling

How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say

"Very good looking car. Ford has really improved the last several years in styling."

IRA V., NC (2014 Ford Fusion)

"One of the best looking vehicles on the road, people often stop me to ask what car it is."

H B., CO (2014 Ford Fusion)

"The under dash console is open on both sides so stuff falls out"

KERRY A., ON (2014 Ford Fusion)

"The visibility between front and side not too good; that is, the beam that separates front window from side window i think is too broad and should be made a bit narrower to improve visibility."

MARY W., NY (2014 Ford Fusion)

"People mistake it for a Mercedes."

TOBY J., FL (2014 Ford Fusion)

"It did win many awards for its styling when it was launched."

GREGORY N., NJ (2014 Ford Fusion)

"Industry leading styling."

SAM P., CA (2014 Ford Fusion)

"Good looking auto. Would suggest a closure on the interior door handles."

Anonymous, FL (2014 Ford Fusion)

"Love the looks and especially the styling of the front of the car."

CHARLES W., MI (2014 Ford Fusion)

"Exterior styling is fine though the taillights seem too small. Interior design seems to be more for the "style" and less for the utility. Some strange styling decisions and much less (and less convenient) storage in the cabin. Can not drive at speed with rear windows down without a loud, shuddering wind turbulence in the cabin."

KEITH S., MI (2014 Ford Fusion)

"good ride and economicle"

ARNOLD B., NJ (2014 Ford Fusion)

"Everyone that sees the car at first thinks it's a BMW or Lexus. Inside & out it rivals the more expensive luxury sedans."

Anonymous, KY (2014 Ford Fusion)

"It is a very good looking car."
