Looking for a midsize sedan with solid power, excellent fuel economy, distinctive styling and a wide array of tech features? The 2017 Ford Fusion might be a good match. Here's a quick rundown of what we like, what we don't and the bottom line from the Edmunds editors.
MARK TAKAHASHI: I'm editor Mark Takahashi. And here's an Edmunds Expert Rundown of the 2017 Ford Fusion. The current Fusion has been around for a while and remains a strong choice. But the competition is heating up. The turbocharged four-cylinder engine choices deliver plenty of power while returning good fuel efficiency. The powerful turbo V6 represent the hot rod fusion, but at the expense of fuel economy. We like the exterior styling. But that sloping rear roof line does cut down on visibility and back seat headroom. Trunk space is still decent for the class though. Interior quality is comparable to other sedans. And the overall design is pleasant with angular accents. Mid-range trims look even more modern with a SYNC 3 system that eliminates some of the physical buttons. As far as operation goes, SYNC 3 is one of the better infotainment systems, a vast improvement over the previous MyFord Touch miss. The bottom line is the Ford Fusion holds its own against the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, and Mazda 6 thanks to its variety and models and engines. But it comes up a little short when it comes to rear seat room.
