So the new Ford Fusion is an attractive package that potentially has class-leading mileage — but what about its price?

Ford just launched a new consumer site for the 2010 Fusion, and overall the vehicle holds the line with aggressively low prices. The Fusion starts at $19,270, which is cheaper than the Chevy Malibu, Honda Accord and Nissan Altima, but is more expensive than the Mazda6, Hyundai Sonata and Toyota Camry (though by less than $1,000).

Keep in mind, too, that those are 2009 models, and this is a 2010.

The hybrid costs $1,000 more than a comparable Toyota Camry Hybrid, but is estimated to get 5-6 more mpg in the city than that car.

Another tidbit from the website: The inline-four with the six-speed automatic has better predicted mileage than the manual, at 33 mpg on the highway.
