The 2016 Ford Fusion Hybrid is The Best Hybrid for Families
For four years running the Ford Fusion Hybrid has been named the best hybrid car for families by U.S. News and World Report. With a spacious interior, nearing the size of a full-size sedan and the efficiency that comes with a hybrid, it easy to see that it offers a superior performance. When matched with a premium cabin and a reliably high level of safety, it’s no wonder why the 2016 Ford Fusion Hybrid is the best hybrid for families.
As a hybrid, the Fusion obviously has a noteworthy fuel economy with 44/41 mpg city/hwy. This is especially good for a midsize sedan. The addition of hybrid parts don’t infringe on the interior, making it even more appealing. Finding a comfortable position is easy in every seat of the Fusion. The back seat also offers an appropriate amount of space for an adult, allowing a family to grow into the space provided, which totals to 118.8 cubic feet.
Not only is it comfortable, it is made with high quality materials and the design just looks good. Especially with the optional infotainment system installed. It creates a clean look that is also simple to use. A rearview camera and dual-zone automatic climate control also come standard and continue the luxury-like experience of the interior.
Safety is also a priority with the hybrid sedan. The interior is available with inflatable second-row safety belts, BLIS cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping, adaptive cruise control and active park assist. There are also advanced airbags and a strong body that is ready to protect every passenger in the event of an accident.
The Ford Fusion Hybrid also drives impressively well and the transition between the electric motor and the engine is smooth and unnoticeable on the whole. The drive also remains powerful with an engine that offers 141 horsepower and 129 lb-ft. of torque and a combined system total of 188 horsepower, which jumps to 195 while the battery is in charge-depletion mode.
All this together offers a vehicle that provides unlike any other. It has everything a family could ask of a sedan or hybrid. To sweeten the deal, the Fusion is well designed. It looks good, unlike a number of other hybrids found on the road. It’s a vehicle to be proud of.
