How Does the 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid Compare to Other Mid-Size Sedans?
The Ford Fusion Hybrid is, of course, based on the Ford Fusion, which offers great handling and a comfortable interior. This gives it an advantage over many of its hybrid competitors along with its competitive mpg ratings. The Fusion further stands out among hybrids with a folding backseat.
What Features in the 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid Are Most Important?
The 2014 Fusion Hybrid is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and an electric motor, which produce a combined 188 horsepower. The electric motor is powered by a lithium-ion battery pack, and an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission comes standard.
Notable standard features include 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, a hybrid-specific gauge cluster, automatic air conditioning, cruise control, cloth seating and a folding backseat. Available options include 18-inch wheels, a power moonroof, a spoiler, MyFord Touch multimedia system and navigation.
Frontal, side-impact and knee airbags for the front seats are standard, as are side curtain airbags for the front and rear, four-wheel-disc antilock brakes and an electronic stability system. Available safety features include inflated rear seat belts, lane departure warning with mitigation, a blind spot warning system and active park assist.
Should I Buy the 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid?
Style-wise, little differentiates the 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid from the non-hybrid Fusion. Fuel-efficiency ratings are strong, even when compared with the Sonata Hybrid and Camry Hybrid. Inside, some controls feel slow to respond. You'll get a split folding backseat, though, which is more than can be said for some competing hybrids.
