Price as Tested $28,820

Aggressive, post-RoboCop nose. Snazzy black leather interior with white stitching. Easy-to-understand dash and controls. Crisp 6-speed makes 221-hp V6 seem peppier than it is. Decent suspension. Grown-ups can fit in back seat.


Overall design caused everyone in office to fall asleep. Optional nav system priced at outrageous $1,895. “No charge for Front License Plate Bracket” listed on window sticker; is that Ford’s idea of a bragging point?


Ford has to be the most confused car company on the planet. It can’t even decide what to name its own cars. The Fusion’s best qualities are that it is not a bad car, just a decent one – until you look at the sticker. Then it becomes a second- or third-tier choice in a crowded field.
