Michael Karesh Michael Karesh Score Pending 2013 Ford Fusion Sedan

The new Fusion’s styling, build quality, seating, features, and handling are clear strengths, while performance and fuel economy are competitive. There’s a coherence in how it looks, how it sounds, how it feels, and how it drives, that you won’t find in many others, especially not at a remotely similar price.

The new Ford Fusion is visually and dynamically an exciting midsize sedan. It clearly makes the outgoing car look like a relic of the old Ford. It combines engaging driving, impressive mpg, and good looks.

This new Fusion does seem to have it all: Grace, space and pace. With European styling, American room, and a value-for-money equation somewhere in between, I think this car will be a big hit. I’d certainly spend my own money on one.

Ford wants buyers to buy a Fusion because they want a Fusion, not because it’s the best deal. Seductive styling, better fuel economy, a premium-feeling chassis, and up-to-the-minute technology are all supposed to impart a sense of greater value.

This Fusion delivers everything sedan buyers are looking for, along with cutting-edge style and sharp handling. It’s quiet, efficient and pleasantly enjoyable to drive. There’s plenty of room, too, and an endless array of technology.

The 2013 Fusion can now be counted among the best in its segment thanks to a commitment to technology and fuel economy, and the realization that sexy sells.

The redesigned 2013 Ford Fusion breaks away from the pack in a big way. If midsize sedan shoppers want fun and style, it is perhaps the only option they have, but it does come with a few tradeoffs.

Good looks, performance and quality make the Fusion more of a contender than ever, although a fully loaded Titanium model can come with a rather cheeky price tag. If this isn’t 2013’s most-improved new car, we’re not sure what is.

The new Fusion is very solid in both feeling and character, and offers all the practicalities we expect from a family sedan. It’s a nice car to drive, and affords users a lot of comfort and convenience. And, for drivers, it really doesn’t hurt to be able to have a bit of fun getting from point A to point B.
