It’s a grim sight - with a fuel pump spinning ever onward, demanding dollar after dollar. You scowl, knowing your wallet will soon feel (considerably) lighter. A simple downtown adventure has turned into an unexpected expense, and you vow to never leave the free span of your driveway again.
Ford has a far less drastic option - with its 2018 Fusion delivering best-in-class economy.
According to Car and Driver, the new Fusion is ideal for Seattle escapes. Boasting both a 2.0L inline-four engine and a continuously variable transmission, this sedan generates 43 MPGs in the city and 41 MPGs on the highway. This ensures class-defining responses, with the FWD providing seamless accelerations, instant stoppage, and improved cornering (all of which help to reduce fuel demands). No other platform comes close:
Toyota Camry: 22 MPGs in the city, 33 MPGs on the highway.
Honda Accord Touring: 21 MPGs in the city, 33 MPGs on the highway.
Volkswagen Passat: 20 MPGs in the city, 28 MPGs on the highway.
The 2018 Fusion is meticulously crafted, with Ford anchoring its chassis with a variety of efficient technologies - including paddle shifters, turbochargers, and custom drive modes. These all combine to enhance performance and create a more fluid ride. Suffer no more at the pump.
