5 reasons to buy the 2014 Ford Fusion

1. Engaging and athletic handling

When you sit behind the wheel of the 2014 Ford Fusion, one of the first things you'll notice is how impressive its handling is. It's distinguished by a composed and compliant ride, especially through turns. Steering is incredibly responsive and sharp, resulting in a comfortable and pleasant ride experience for all passengers. This makes the 2014 Fusion a great choice for commuters, but also for families who regularly travel out of town.

2. Attractive exterior design

Among a few other things, the 2014 Ford Fusion's styling sets it apart from competitors, with an attractive exterior design that is bound to turn some heads. It's a handsome midsized sedan, with an imposing hexagon grille that makes for a lasting first impression, complemented by the beautiful sloping roofline and eye-catching wraparound headlamps. There is no way around it, the 2014 Ford Fusion is a gorgeous vehicle with looks matching that of much more expensive, luxury cars.

3. Potent engine options

The 2014 Ford Fusion is a great choice for those looking for a vehicle that can deliver exciting performance, as well. It's offered with a couple of attractive and powerful engine options, that promise dynamic and athletic performance. The Fusion comes standard with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine, with 175 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque, that's paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. Beyond that, you can also opt for a model that's available with a 178-hp turbocharged 1.6L four-cylinder engine with 184-lb-ft torque, or the more powerful 2.0L four-cylinder — generating 240 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque.

All engines in this lineup return great mileage, with the base model powered by the turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder with front-wheel drive getting an EPA-estimated 26 mpg combined.

4. Many standard features

The fact that it comes with plenty of standard tech features is just one more strong suit of the 2014 Ford Fusion. It's very well equipped, especially regarding convenience and infotainment. For starters, it comes standard with a 4.2-inch infotainment display, a USB port, and a four-speaker audio system. It's also equipped with air conditioning and cruise control, along with steering-wheel audio and phone controls, power windows, 60/40-split-folding rear seats, and a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel.

5. Abundant cargo space

If you need a vehicle with a lot of room for cargo, that would be yet another reason to take the 2014 Ford Fusion into serious consideration. It has plenty of storage space, both in the trunk and around the cabin. You'll get 16 cu-ft of trunk space, which is a great size for a midsize sedan. Inside, there is a pretty large glove box, along with bottle holders in all doors and a small storage bin under the center stack.
