Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.
You can interpret our ratings in the following way:
5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.
4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.
3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.
2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.
1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.
2019 Ford Fusion Hybrid OVERVIEW
If you want a Ford hybrid, 2019 might be your best opportunity, as the Fusion lineup is scheduled to be discontinued by 2020. The 2019 Ford Fusion Hybrid is offered to North American consumers in three, easy to configure trim levels. The Fusion continues to offer hybrid shoppers with well-appointed features, a stylish interior, and loads of standard tech, making it one of the best mid-size hybrid sedans on the market.
What's New for 2019
Ford’s latest marketing push is on full display with the 2019 Ford Fusion Hybrid, which features updated styling that includes a slimmed down front and rear and new wheel and color palettes. The Fusion Hybrid has also simplified the trim options, reducing from four in 2018 to three in 2019. Finally, the 2019 Fusion Hybrid gets a number of new standard safety technologies. These include navigation, adaptive cruise control with stop and go, and the debut of Ford Co-Pilot360, a suite of driver-assist features that includes automatic high beams, a rearview camera, lane keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection.
Choosing Your Ford Fusion Hybrid
The second-generation Ford Fusion Hybrid is available in three trims: Hybrid SE, Hybrid SEL, and Hybrid Titanium. Each receives power from the dependable 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle inline-four engine that's paired to an 88-kilowatt electric motor. The electric motor receives juice from a 1.4-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack.
Paired together, the Hybrid powerplant produces 188 horsepower and 129 pound-feet of torque. The hybrid setup is paired with an electronic continuously variable transmission that routes power to the front wheels. According to the EPA, the Fusion Hybrid returns 43 miles per gallon city, 41 mpg highway, and 42 combined.
The 2019 Ford Fusion Hybrid is packed with several impressive standard features including an eight-inch infotainment display screen, a nine-speaker sound system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration, and navigation with a Wi-Fi hotspot.
As we mentioned earlier, 2019 might be your best chance to purchase a Ford Fusion Hybrid. The Fusion lineup is expected to be deleted by 2020. Consumers looking for the best value among the 2019 Ford Fusion Hybrid range might find the SEL to their liking. If a plug-in hybrid is more your style, look closely at the 2019 Ford Fusion Energi.
