 The Ford Fusion is  one of the sportiest new cars around. And if your peace of mind is mpg-dependent, finding a midsize 4-door that can beat the Ford Fusion Hybrid’s 47 mile-per-gallon (mpg) figure is a pipe dream. Ford Fusion pricing lands right on top of the 2014 midsize class leaders, so you won’t find a shocking bargain, but you will be driving a car that feels more luxurious than the other players in the game.

The available technology features in the 2014 Ford Fusion do everything from making your drive more convenient to helping protect you in the event of a collision. The available voice-activated SYNC® with MyFord Touch® allows you to keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road while you make music selections, control the interior climate and place or receive phone calls. Inflatable Second-Row Safety Belts help distribute crash force energy across more of the torso area than a traditional belt. There are also available features that do everything from warning you of vehicles detected in your blind spots to parallel parking your car with minimal input from you.

It happens at times to the best of drivers – unintentionally drifting out of the driving lane. That’s when you’ll appreciate this customizable, driver-activated system*. There is a camera mounted behind the windshield that monitors road lane markings to determine vehicle position and detect a lane departure. Lane-keeping alert warns that you’re starting to drift through a series of steering wheel vibrations, which mimic a rumble strip. Lane-keeping aid actively applies steering torque, which alerts you to direct your vehicle back into the target lane should the system detect an unintended lane departure.
Active park assist is designed to help make parallel parking a breeze. While driving slowly near parking spots, simply activate this feature and it scans for available parking spots. Ultrasonic sensors measure the distance to the curb and other parked cars. Once a big enough spot is identified, you’re signaled to stop and accept the system’s assistance. All you do is control the shifting, accelerating and braking.
