5 reasons to buy the 2016 Ford Fusion

1. Impressive gas mileage

The 2016 Ford Fusion is a fuel-sipping midsize sedan, offering impressive efficiency whether you commute to your nine-to-five or enjoy weekend road trips. For the most gas mileage, consider the 181-hp 1.5L EcoBoost, with an EPA-estimated 29 mpg combined with standard FWD and 28 mpg combined with available AWD.

The base model features a 175-hp 2.5L four-cylinder engine with an EPA-estimated 26 mpg combined with standard front-wheel drive.
The 2016 Fusion also offers a pair of available EcoBoost® turbocharged engine options with optional all-wheel drive. The 240-hp 2.0L EcoBoost returns good economy for the power it produces—an EPA-estimated 26 mpg combined with standard FWD or 25 mpg combined with available AWD.

2. Comfortable and spacious

The 2016 Ford Fusion boasts a comfortable and roomy cabin ideal for daily travel and special trips. SE and higher trims include a 10-way power-adjustable driver seat with power lumbar for complete customization and a six-way power-adjustable front-passenger seat. Titanium models also come standard with heated front seats and driver-side memory with three settings. Front and rear legroom space is generous for taller occupants, with 44.3 inches and 38.3 inches, respectively. You'll also have plenty of room for cargo—like luggage or golf clubs—with 16 cu-ft of volume.

3. Captivating design

If you're looking for a midsize sedan that is easy on the eyes, the 2016 Ford Fusion is a beauty. This model's sleek design features an aerodynamic shape and sculpted lines that add to its sporty appearance. The front end also has a bold chrome grille and stylish automatic halogen projector-beam headlamps, enhancing the sedan's handsome appearance (standard on all trims). Available in 10 exterior paint colors and nine interior upholstery choices, there is a 2016 Fusion that matches your design preferences.
