2018 Ford Fusion Review
The 2018 Ford Fusion has a lot to offer in terms of looks. There are various trim levels for you to choose from. Though it doesn’t provide anything too drastic compared to the previous versions, some additions to help it to stand out from its competitors. Let’s give it a closer look.
The 2018 Ford Fusion has an Aston Martin–inspired grille and a very stunning creased sheetmetal. Some might argue that the Fusion models have always been handsome compared to some of its competitors ever since it made its debut back in 2012. Drivers expect the Ford Fusion line to continue being visually stunning. There are no drastic external changes compared to the 2017 model but even then this model doesn’t suffer from it. This is a mid-size car that sure to appeal to many. The height comes in at 58.2-inches, with length and width (without mirrors) measuring in at 191.8-inches and 72.9-inches respectively. A sunroof is optional.
There still aren’t a lot of changes to write about when mentioning the 2018 Ford Fusion interior. The comfort level is high, mostly similar to the 2017 version. You’ll get to enjoy high-quality quilted leather and even an 8.0-inch touchscreen. Depending on the model you select, the interior features can continue being enhanced. The space behind the wheel is spacious enough to offer a comfortable drive. The legroom in the back is adequate enough too.
Coming to the 2018 Ford Fusion features, you’ll be getting quilted leather seating surfaces, a standard all-wheel drive bag, and a leather-trimmed dash. This model has six available engines along with a total of 11 trim levels. Take note that the hybrid variants lessen trunk space and overall performance. In the SE model, there’s also an upgraded Sync 3 audio system as well as heated leather seats. A proximity-key entry along with push-button start is also included. The tilting steering column along with the telescoping steering column is standard.
