  • The Fusion Hybrid adds a Titanium trim.
  • Titanium offers several luxury features.
  • Fusion goes on sale later this year.

The most luxurious trim level of Ford's upcoming Fusion sedan will be available soon with a hybrid powertrain. According to the automaker, the 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid will offer a Titanium trim level when it goes on sale later this year, letting environmentally conscious car shoppers combine impressive fuel economy with upscale amenities.

According to Ford, the Fusion Hybrid Titanium will start at $33,790 including destination, making it the most expensive variant of the handsome mid-size sedan. Its addition to the lineup marks the first time the model's most luxurious trim level will be available for the Fusion Hybrid, which debuted in 2010. According to Ford, that means buyers won't have to choose between luxury and efficiency when deciding which Fusion is right for them.

"Traditionally, car buyers have had to compromise when selecting between class-leading efficiency, premium amenities and value," said Samantha Hoyt, Ford's marketing manager for the Fusion. "The new Fusion Hybrid Titanium lets customers have it all."

Indeed, the Fusion Titanium includes a long list of luxury appointments, such as a 10-way power driver's seat, leather upholstery, a reversing camera, 18-inch alloy wheels and chrome accents inside and out. It also includes Ford's MyFord Touch infotainment system with SYNC, with which cab drivers can pair their smartphones to use apps, enhanced voice control and other features--text message reading through the sedan's speakers, for example.

"All of the interior materials and surface finishes provide the sense of arriving at a destination," said Gary Braddock, a Fusion interior designer. "Metallic finishes on the door, instrument panel and center console are bright without being reflective, allowing the interior to look expensive without being ostentatious."

Non-hybrid versions of the Fusion Titanium feature the automaker's 2.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine, which produces 240 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. While that engine doesn't return the same 47 miles per gallon in combined city and highway driving offered by the Fusion Hybrid, it still achieves a strong 23 mpg city and 33 mpg highway. The Fusion also offers a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder in base-level S models and a 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder in the mid-level Fusion SE.

What it means to you: The 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid lets buyers enjoy tremendous fuel economy without skimping on luxury features.
