Interior details

Thanks to a quiet and comfortable interior, the 2018 Ford Fusion Hybrid is an excellent vehicle for longer road trips, commutes, and daily errands. A spacious 102 cu-ft cabin has room for up to five passengers. In addition, there's more than enough space for groceries, sports gear, or luggage in the trunk, which holds up to 12 cu-ft. The Titanium and Platinum trims upgrade to soft leather seating, aluminum accents, and a premium leather-wrapped steering wheel (Platinum).

Child seat details

You can use three positions for child seats in the 2018 Ford Fusion Hybrid. However, if you want to use the LATCH connection system in the middle position, you have to borrow the lower anchors from the outside seats, limiting you to only that middle seat. There are two LATCH anchors on the outer rear seats, with easy-to-access upper tether points. While the lower connection points are easy to find and locate, they can sit deeper in the seat material, making use difficult. You should be able to comfortably fit two forward- or reverse-facing child seats in the rear of the 2018 Ford Fusion Hybrid.


With the 2.0L four-cylinder engine and electric motor, the 2018 Ford Fusion Hybrid has a combined 188 hp. The eCVT reduces the feeling of gear shifting, providing a smooth ride around town and on the highway. The 2018 Ford Fusion Hybrid drives and handles well, but it may not be as spirited as the gas versions due to an economy focus. But that focus results in an impressive EPA-estimated 42 mpg combined.
