    2012 Ford Fusion Review Summaries

    What reviewers liked most about the Ford Fusion

    • On the road, it was remarkably quiet, holding off not only the sound of its own engine, but also blocking out the noise from passing and tires, even on the coarsest of roads.

      - Cars.com
    • The broad range of gear ratios makes for spirited acceleration without sacrificing efficient high-speed cruising. Most important, it reacts quickly and without undue kickdown lag.

      - Cars.com
    • The Ford Fusion actually has presence, amazing in a segment where most cars blend in.

      - New Car Test Drive
    • Taking styling themes established by Ford's 427 concept car during the 2003 auto show season, the lines are handsome from every angle, but particularly so from the front where the three bold chrome slats make up the grille and the headlights manage the neat trick of being both somewhat rectangular and swooping up into each front fender.

    What reviewers liked least about the Ford Fusion

    • The Fusion suffers a bit in that it doesn't offer anti-lock brakes, traction control or side airbags as standard features, and stability control is not offered at all...

      - Los Angeles Times
    • ...the driver needs some positive control over the six-speed automatic transmission to make this car truly fun-to-drive. There are moments when the tranny is hunting for a gear when it should be confidently downshifting for a corner or upshifting at the torque peak.

    Ford Fusion Comparisons

    • The ride quality is by no means soft...It's in line with the imports - firmer than the Camry but not as taut as the Accord, which I find too harsh.

      - Cars.com
    • ...highway fuel economy of 31 miles per gallon...has better fuel economy...than the Camry.

      - Cars.com
    • Based on the highly praised Mazda6 sedan, the Fusion is a rock solid entry at a decent price.

      - New Car Test Drive

    Best one-liner about the Ford Fusion

    • That front end is smokin'!

      - Cars.com
    • The Fusion is a modest car for times when modesty, if not humility, is much in order.
