In a class generally known for bland styling and a lack of driving excitement, the 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 it handles like a really good European sports sedan. We bought three versions: a top-trim Titanium, a mid-trim SE, and the SE Hybrid.

BOB M., IN (2016 Ford Fusion)

"Very bad turbocharger system. Hesitates when throttle applied."

BILL G., MI (2016 Ford Fusion)

"The 2.0L Turbo provides excellent torque around town. Brisk acceleration. It does however fall off a cliff rather quickly at higher speeds. It often seems no faster in passing power than many other naturally aspirated engines i've driven. Handling however is top notch though weight can definitely be felt depending on the specific type of turn-ins done. Over all as a daily, it exceeds in this category."

STEVEN L., CT (2016 Ford Fusion)

"The EcoBoost 2.0 engine provides performance & fuel economy comparable to a V6. Handing is especially good for a mid-size car, borderline sporty."

"it handles well and has a great road feel though the tires are noisy"

Michael B., IL (2016 Ford Fusion)

"The Fusion blends a good amount of quiet comfort and sporty handling for a car in its class. I'm always surprised when I take on an on-ramp at a higher rate of speed. Acceleration is good, there is plenty of around town punch. The engine runs out of steam earlier than I would like but you would never know it if your commute is regularly around 30 mph - 50 mph. One thing I certainly don't like is the clunky feeling transmission and it occasional hesitation when demanding full power. The lag in the turbo + hesitation down shifting make gunning for open spots in slower traffic terrifying - You just can't be sure it's going to give it all it's got. In summary, the torquey motor is fun and advantageous enough, feels quick even though it isn't always fast."

"The power is there where I need it, no hesitation when accelerating. The ride is smooth. The front end is too low and something scrapes the pavement when going into parking lots, driveways that are on an incline. There is a hard flap (similar to a mud flap) between the front bumper and front tires under the car. The Ford service department says they cannot do anything about it. I would had gotten larger tires to eliminate that scraping of pavement if I knew about this."

DIANE W., KY (2016 Ford Fusion)

"Noise is bad with the windows open. For some reason riding with the driver's side window fully down creates this reverberating noise that's very annoying. It's worse with the window partially down. The manual says open a window across from the first, but that frequently fails to help. Can't they test these designs in a wind tunnel?"

"All the seats are uncomfortable to sit in for extended trips, and seat adjustments do not improve the sit-uation. The first time our adult son rode in our car, he commented that he was surprised how uncomfortable the seats are. SEAT BELT: The shoulder belt, passenger side, constantly rubs against my neck because it does not adjust properly for my height (just 5 feet tall). As a result, I hold the seat belt continuously away from me when in the passenger seat. I do not know if this will affect the function of the belt if needed, but is certainly annoying if not dangerous. Taller passengers have no problem with this. Adjusting the seat position helps some, but not enough."

"One of the main criticisms of the optional AWD system is that it is only offered on the higher trims of the Fusion. SE and above which on paper makes it look pricey compared to the Legacy however when you factor in year round rebates, the Fusion comes with AWD at around the same prices as any given legacy except for the base. This also includes the upgraded engine on the Fusion (2.0T). Although not flashy, The interior of the fusion is full of soft touch material even down to knee touch points. It's incredibly quiet and has excellent driving dynamics. According to CR, the Fusion also holds up on reliability and the few quibbles there are boil down to the MFT system. The system is just fine and most people complain about the climate controls that are buried. You should be leaving it on auto anyway! Overall - great value for money!"

"In general I think the Ford Fusion Hybrid is a good value except for the cooling design for the Li-Ion battery. The cooling system is inadequate, causing the car not to run in battery mode at ambient temperatures above 95F. This problem will also likely cause the battery capacity to degrade significantly over time. I would like to see CR report on battery mode operation of future Plug in Hybrid Vehicles at temperature extremes in future car reviews."

"It is just a car and the price nearing 40k for a small (midsize) car. There is a ton of technology and I love the power of the EcoBoost with the fuel economy combination"

"It’s a car large enough to comfortably seat 4 large adults while getting 40 mpg. It’s quite and easy to drive."

"We are able to use the electric drive to get to and from work each day, and are able to charge the car at work for free. We fill it with gas about once a month. All that considered, it represents a considerable savings. The impact to our electric bill when charging only at home is less than a single tank of gasoline. In that sense (and with the discounts we got at purchase time), it's paid for itself relative to our previous car."

"with out a doubt the best looking car on the road in its price range and the all wheel drive is one of the only ones with enough power in its price range in a car to pull a 2000 lb trailer."
