The 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid is ranked:

#1 in Affordable Midsize Cars
#1 in Hybrid Cars

Excellent fuel economy, strong performance, great reliability and safety scores, a roomy interior and stylish exterior help the 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid rank at the top of the class.

The Ford Fusion Hybrid is powered by a four-cylinder engine and electric motor that together produce 188 horsepower. The Fusion Hybrid also has a continuously variable transmission. At 47/47 mpg city/highway, the 2013 Fusion Hybrid has some of the highest fuel economy ratings in the class. Reviewers love how quiet the hybrid powertrain is, noting that it is almost silent, even with the gas engine running. They say that the Fusion Hybrid has plenty of power from a stop and in city driving. Reviewers are divided on the car’s handling, with some saying the steering is light and the car is unwieldy, and others saying the steering is precise and the car is composed. The brakes are disliked for being too grabby. Automobile Magazine writes, "Although some aspects of this driving experience are unfortunately hybrid-like, the newest gas-electric Fusion has nailed the three most important aspects of a hybrid: fuel economy, fuel economy, fuel economy."

The 2013 Fusion Hybrid’s redesigned cabin receives high marks for its roomy, comfortable seats and useful trunk that expands cargo space with a folding rear seat and pass-through. Some reviewers think the interior design is attractive and upscale, while others think it’s boring and has some low-quality materials. The available MyFord Touch infotainment system continues to irritate auto critics, who think it is difficult to use and confusing. The Fusion Hybrid’s notable standard features include dual-zone automatic climate control, an auxiliary jack, satellite radio, Bluetooth, voice-controlled Sync with MyFord infotainment system, MyKey, which sets limits on young drivers, and eight airbags. The Fusion Hybrid can be equipped with features like lane departure warning with lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, active park assist with forward sensing system, navigation, Sync with MyFord Touch, a rearview camera, backup sensors and rain-sensing wipers.

"Considering its impressive economy, beautiful exterior, sweet and easygoing personality, and reasonable $27,995 starting price, the 2013 Fusion hybrid is likely to be popular. However, it looks pretty much like any other Fusion from the outside, so if you're looking for a hybrid that shouts its environmental virtue to the world, get a Prius." -- Car and Driver
"Sure, it was a bit softer than we might have liked, but we're glad to report that Ford hasn't let lofty fuel economy goals completely suck the life out of the Fusion. It's about as sporty as a hybrid sedan gets for $30K both in how it looks and how it feels from behind the wheel. Add in its impressive fuel economy numbers and this Fusion is a legitimate alternative to the standard Fusion as much as it is a better, more fun-to-drive competitor to the Prius." -- Inside Line

Other Cars to Consider

The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid’s fuel economy can’t beat the Fusion Hybrid’s, but reviewers like that it doesn’t sacrifice performance in the name of fuel economy. Critics also like the Sonata Hybrid’s upscale cabin and stylish exterior.

The Toyota Camry Hybrid delivers better fuel economy than the Sonata Hybrid, but less than the Fusion Hybrid. Though many test drivers think the Camry Hybrid’s transition from gas to electric power is seamless, some note that the engine is noisy under hard acceleration. The Camry Hybrid’s rear seat doesn’t fold like the Fusion Hybrid’s does, but since the battery pack is located in the front of the car, the Camry Hybrid offers more cargo space.
