The new Ford Fusion is one of the most captivating designs to hit the family sedan segment, drawing immediate comparisons to exotic cars like Aston Martins. But it's also efficient and technologically advanced, with lots of options to let buyers find a Fusion that's right for them. And some of the available features, like active park assist, are unique in the segment and enticing even to premium shoppers.
The Fusion starts off with the S, which will attract buyers interested in a basic family sedan. That means it gets the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 175 horsepower and a six-speed automatic. Also included are power windows, locks with keyless entry, power mirrors, cruise control, air conditioning with cabin air filter, 16-inch steel wheels, a trip computer, split-folding rear seats, and Ford's SYNC system which integrates audio and iPod controls.Read more »
