In a class generally known for bland styling and a lack of driving excitement, the Fusion is a breath of fresh air with a stylish, fun to drive demeanor. That doesn't mean it's free of certain quirks that can erode one's enthusiasm. The Fusion looks upscale and stylish, and it handles like a really good European sports sedan.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"Great driving experience. Tons of power. Fun to drive."

Anonymous, HI (2017 Ford Fusion)

"body styling handling"

Anonymous, WA (2017 Ford Fusion)

"I have the Sport model and it accelerates well and effortlessly. It also handles very well, although you can feel its size. The downside to its power and acceleration is its fuel economy. It is more boost than eco."

Harry C., IL (2017 Ford Fusion)

"The sport handles very well and accelerates quickly, no turbo lag"

Louis G., IL (2017 Ford Fusion)

"Car is very powerful and a joy to drive."

Anonymous, NY (2017 Ford Fusion)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"great driving car. Very surprised with the amount of acceleration out of a 4 cylinder"

Glenn L., FL (2017 Ford Fusion)

"Insufficient thigh support for driver. Distracting steering wheel controls. Distracting instrument display. Seeing vehicle information usually displayed on instrument panel requires scrolling from screen to screen on Fusion. Car is just uncomfortable to drive."

Anonymous, WA (2017 Ford Fusion)

"Stowe and go Seats in all rows."

Doug J., ON (2017 Ford Fusion)

"The Fusion Platinum Hybrid is quiet and smooth in most conditions, but under aggressive acceleration is become weak and noisy. However, one does not usually buy a Hybrid if they want more aggressive performance, so it fairs well and delivers excellent fuel economy."

Wade B., TX (2017 Ford Fusion)

"road noise is louder than we would like, but not intolerable."

Anonymous, AZ (2017 Ford Fusion)

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
