What Critics Think of the 2018 Ford Fusion

2018 Ford Fusion 

  • “Not many cars in this segment are focused on driving enjoyment, but the Fusion remains entertaining.” – Edmunds
  • “The higher-end Fusion Platinum comes with enough features to pass as the luxury car the Fusion's sweeping exterior styling suggests.” – Kelley Blue Book
  • “From the back, from the front, seen in profile, the Ford Fusion is as good-looking as family cars get.” – The Car Connection

We knew the 2018 Ford Fusion would earn glowing reviews — after all, we’ve seen the faces of numerous drivers light up after taking a test drive around Iosco County. Even so, we were taken aback by the adulation aimed at this ever-popular midsize sedan, so we thought we’d put together a list of our top critical quotes.


Edmunds is right to highlight 2018 Ford Fusion’s performance. With 175 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque as standard, plus the option to equip either a turbocharged 1.5L engine with 181 hp and 185 lb-ft of torque or a turbocharged 2.0L capable of up to 240 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque, “entertaining” is certainly the word. European-inspired independent MacPherson strut-type suspension with a stabilizer bar tames road noise, vibration, and body roll, while available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive maintains impeccable traction.

The new Fusion comes generously equipped as standard, but it’s the premium features that make your jaw drop. Upper-level models can provide a 12-speaker Sony audio system, GPS navigation, parallel and perpendicular semi-autonomous parking, and a range of driver-assistance features covering everything from adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go to lane departure warning with lane-keeping assist.

Style and Space

The Car Connection deeply admired the Ford Fusion’s styling, noting a similarity to Aston Martin in the revamped front end. The sloping roofline connotes effortless command, but interior space isn’t compromised. Even taller passengers will feel comfortable in the rear, and there’s up to a generous 16 cubic feet of storage space in the trunk alone.
