5 reasons to buy the 2018 Ford Fusion

1. Practical and comfortable

It may be a sedan, but the 2018 Ford Fusion can accommodate everything that you and your crew can throw at, or in. The 16 cu-ft of trunk space is accessed by a large opening along with a low-loading sill. Standard 60/40 split-fold rear seats add even more practicality and around 38 inches of front and rear legroom means that all your passengers will ride in comfort. Interior refinement and attention to detail are also 2018 Ford Fusion highlights, with little road noise entering the cabin.

2. Well-equipped trims

You get plenty of features across the 2018 Ford Fusion trim lineup—all you need to do is pick the one that suits you. The entry-level S features 16-inch alloy wheels, remote keyless entry, and a SYNC® voice recognition entertainment system. Move up to SE to gain LED lighting, powered front seats, and a 4.2-inch color instrument screen. The Titanium trim adds heated and leather seats and a Sony 12-speaker audio system. The 2018 Ford Fusion Platinum is for drivers who appreciate upmarket touches. These include distinctive 19-inch alloy wheels and exterior detailing, along with adaptive cruise control for peace of mind. 

3. A choice of engine options

The 2018 Ford Fusion has four gasoline engine options that cater to all drivers, whether you favor economy or performance. The most efficient—the 181 hp, 1.5L four-cylinder EcoBoost® engine—achieves an EPA-estimated 23 mpg in the city, and 34 mpg on the highway.

 If you want the most powerful 2018 Ford Fusion, choose the 2.7L EcoBoost V6 six-cylinder with 325 hp and 380lb-ft of torque.

4. Hybrid and plug-in hybrid options

In addition to the standard range of engines, the 2018 Ford Fusion range also includes two hybrid options for drivers who want a little electric power. The 188 hp hybrid (HEV) 2.0L engine achieves an EPA-estimated 43 mpg in the city, and 42 mpg on the highway.

 The plug-in hybrid (PHEV) 2018 Ford Fusion Energi is even better: it has an EPA-estimated total driving range of 610 miles, 21 of those on all-electric power (when fully charged).
 You don't even need to think too much about how you drive, as it decides when to use its electric motor or when to turn on its gas engine.

5. An enjoyable drive

Keen drivers will enjoy how the 2018 Ford Fusion performs. The suspension soaks up highway imperfections well, and its smooth ride and minimal body roll will be appreciated by your passengers. All 2018 Fusion trims have Ford's SelectShift® six-speed automatic transmission as standard, and the V6 Sport features intelligent all-wheel drive as well as continuously controlled dampers.
