2010 Ford Fusion

2009 Ford Fusion

2010 Ford Fusion

The 2010 Ford Fusion ranks 3 out of 24 Affordable Midsize Cars. This ranking is based on our analysis of 15 published reviews and test drives of the Ford Fusion, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.

The Ford Fusion is no longer just viable competition for the imports. It’s now one of the best midsize family cars. Substantially improved for 2010, it now boasts one of the most upscale interiors in the affordable midsize class, a more powerful lineup of engines, and available all-wheel drive – something few competitors can claim.

The Ford Fusion was thoroughly revised for 2010, with improvements made to most of the car’s former sore spots. The styling is now edgier and the interior has been updated with a more modern design featuring Ford’s latest entertainment and climate controls. The four-cylinder engine was upgraded to 2.5 liters and now produces 175 horsepower, while the 3.0-liter V6 now makes 240 horses. A new trim level, the Fusion Sport, gets a 3.5-liter V6 good for 263 hp. This Sport model maintains the previous car’s sporty hydraulic steering, whereas the regular Fusion switches to more parking-lot and fuel-efficiency-friendly electric steering.

The Fusion is offered in S, SE, Sport and SEL trim levels. Front-wheel drive is standard on four-cylinder and Sport models, while all-wheel drive is optional on the Sport and mandatory on the V6-powered SEL. Even the base trim comes with niceties like 16-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, a telescoping steering column and an auxiliary audio jack. There are an ample number of attractive features available as trim level upgrades or stand-alone options, including bigger wheels, power seats, leather upholstery, dual-zone climate control, heated seats, upgraded stereos, a navigation system and the Sync electronics interface system.
