2018 FUSION PLATINUM HYBRID

The 2018 Ford Fusion Platinum Hybrid boasts agile handling and the good fuel economy you’d expect from a hybrid, but its regenerative brakes can feel grabby. Inside its cabin, the Fusion Hybrid offers high-quality accomodations and user-friendly features.

The 2018 Fusion Hybrid is a solid midsize car, with its spacious cabin and intuitive technology. It’s even better as a hybrid, delivering high fuel efficiency while still being fun to drive. There are better midsize sedans available, but the Fusion Hybrid strikes a nice balance of many important areas.

The 2018 Ford Fusion Hybrid has a good combination of comfort, technology, performance, and fuel economy. It saves you money at the pump, and it’s fun to drive. It has an unexpectedly upscale interior with plenty of room all-around, and its infotainment system is easy to use. The Fusion Hybrid isn’t the fastest hybrid car, but it has sporty handling, and it transitions from electric to gas seamlessly. Its regenerative brakes can take some time to get used to, though, and rivals have more standard features.
