2015 Ford Fusion

Pros: Broad range of powertrains and trim choices, including well-designed Hybrid and Energi plug-in-hybrid models; one of the quieter cars in the class; crisp-for-the-class handling

Cons: MyFord Touch interface isn’t very user-friendly; top-line trim levels are expensive; swoopy styling intrudes a bit on rear visibility

CG Says: For 2015, Ford’s midsize car sees a few minor updates and adds some features as standard equipment. A Terracotta appearance package, which includes 18-inch wheels and terracotta leather upholstery, is available on SE and Titanium models. SE and Titanium also get new six-way and ten-way power adjustable passenger seats, respectively. The Fusion is a solid offering from Ford. It has many strong areas, but there are a few weaknesses too. We really like the choice of several different powertrains. And we’ve been especially impressed with the refined 1.5- and 2.0-liter EcoBoost engines and the car’s very comfortable ride. The smooth Hybrid model is a positive, too. While the 2015 Ford Fusion’s EPA estimates are very promising, we’ve been disappointed in the mileage our test cars have returned. And we have to say we’re not convinced that MyFord Touch is a clear improvement over more traditional control interfaces. Fusion is certainly worth a look, and we think the best value is to be found in a modestly optioned SE.
