When you’re in the market for new cars, you have to sort through a lot of sales jargon to find what you’re looking for. While 43% of people (rightfully) see visits to car dealerships as a learning opportunity, it doesn’t hurt to go in knowing a few things ahead of time. So if you’re looking for a mid-size sedan in 2018, what should you know about the 2018 Ford Fusion SE?
The Fusion SE comes with 2.0L EcoBoost I-4 Engine. This means it’s turbocharged and can produce 245 horsepower, much more than your run of the mill mid-size family sedan. For a moderate driving enthusiast that has a family, this engine is excellent.
You get a cozy six-speed automatic gearbox, which will make traffic a bit more relaxing. For the commuters out there, you can put this car in shifting mode for when the mood takes you.
For new cars this size, the 2018 Ford Fusion SE boasts a modest but still competitive 21 mpg city and 32 mpg highway fuel rating. With gas mileage like this, you can drive without worrying about refueling every other day.
This is where the Fusion starts to show off. It has heated leather bucket seats in the front, lumbar adjustable driver’s seat, solar tinted glass, keyless entry, push to start, rear view camera, GPS, and many other smart car goodies. This creates an excellent modern ambiance which exudes class and comfort, not to mention plenty of practical devices for tech enthusiasts.
For the family, the Fusion offers the standard safety features found on many new cars. These include anti-lock brakes, airbags all over the place, brake assist, child safety locks, perimeter alarm, and traction control. Even better, the 2018 Ford Fusion has an overall 5-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
All of this is great, but the Fusion’s upgraded aesthetics might really seal the deal. Ford hit the styling out of the park with this one, and you would be hard-pressed to find a better looking mid-size sedan than the Fusion. For the money and features, this is a great car.
