Review Summary of the 2017 Ford Fusion

Taking a Spin in the Best Family Sedan of 2017

Recently named the Best Family Sedan by Motorweek Magazine the 2017 Ford Fusion is one of the smartest, most technology-packed Sedans in the Ford lineup.

With six available engine choices and the inclusion of the Ford’s all-new Sync 3 infotainment system you will be hard pressed to find any other family-friendly sedan on the market like it. Although your Southern CA Ford Dealers could go on and on about why we love the updated Ford Fusion, why not take a little bit of advice from a few automotive experts.

As the specialists at Kelly Blue Book say “There may be no other car in the midsize sedan segment that appeals to a broader spectrum than the Ford Fusion. One of the only sedans in the market to offer plug-in, hybrid and all-wheel-drive models, these experts say that taking a ride in the new Fusion is one of the quietest rides that you will ever have. Thanks to an available Active Noise Control (noise cancelation) system, which is inspired by noise cancelling headphone technology, this sedan offers one of the most peaceful drives possible.

The automotive authorities at Edmunds are also impressed with the Fusion’s “tasteful styling, push-button ignition and a rotary shifter that frees up space for more useful cup holders and bins.” As these experts also agree “the Ford Fusion's driving experience is a convincing impression of an entry-level luxury car”. Along with the power offered by the six available engines, the all new Fusion also offers a comfortable and rigid ride that offers stability and control that few other sedans on the market offer.

What else is important to any family that is in the market for a new car? Safety of course! As the powers that be at Motor Trend point out “the 2017 Ford Fusion sedan has not only been awarded an IIHS Top Safety Pick and designation, the car has also earned a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA”. With safety features including standard front, side, and curtain airbags, daytime running lights, ABS, emergency brake assist, a post-collision safety system, pedestrian detection system and hands-free parallel and perpendicular parking you can assure that your family will arrive at each chosen destination unharmed and in complete comfort.

For those who are looking for a sedan with a little more get up and go than most, the Fusion also offers a 2.7L EcoBoost V-6 Sport model. As the recent review from Motor Trend also mentions the “torque output alone surpasses the likes of the new 2017 Audi S4 and BMW 340i xDrive”
