One of the most efficient cars of any size, the Ford Fusion Hybrid delivers all the sophistication and style of the regular Fusion, plus a whopping 47 mpg on both the highway and city streets. No other family sedan without a plug can lay claim to that kind of mileage.
What's New for 2014
The Fusion Hybrid can now be had in entry-level S trim, which brings it in line with other Ford products. New options include ventilated front seats, inflatable rear seatbelts and a heated steering wheel.
Choosing Your Ford Fusion Hybrid
The Fusion Hybrid owes its efficiency to the marriage of a 2-liter gasoline four-cylinder and an electric motor powered by a lithium-ion battery pack. The continuously variable transmission (CVT) is specially tuned to work with hybrid power. With 188 horsepower available, the Fusion Hybrid is reasonably quick, but the real draw of course is 47 mpg in a midsize sedan.
The addition of the S model means the Fusion Hybrid starts at a lower price this year. The familiar SE and Titanium trim continue unchanged:
The price gap between the gas-only Fusion and the Hybrid narrows as you move up the trim levels. The Titanium models are only $2,000 apart, quite reasonable considering the Hybrid’s 20+ mpg advantage around town.
