Overview

What's New in the 2017 Ford Fusion?

The whole Fusion lineup has been restyled for this year. The temperamental MyFord Touch infotainment setup has now been replaced by a more user-friendly SYNC 3 system. A rotary transmission selector is a newcomer to the cabin. A push-button start is now standard throughout. The lower S and SE trims now have a 9-speaker audio system (up from a 6-speaker system). And a new Platinum trim level comes in at the top of the range.See the 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid models for sale near you

Which Fusion is the Best?

Look at an SE with the options bundle that brings the SYNC 3 system. That should be a good, well-equipped starting point. Then go lower or higher according to budget.Find a Ford Fusion Hybrid for sale

How Much Does a 2017 Ford Fusion Cost?

The 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid is available in S, SE, Titanium and Platinum trim levels.

The Hybrid S ($26,550) starts with 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, dual LCD EcoGuide displays, a tilt-telescopic steering wheel with auxiliary controls, a height-adjustable manual driver's seat, a trip computer, MyKey parental control capability, Bluetooth, SYNC voice command with MyFord mobile app support, a rearview camera and a 9-speaker audio system with an auxiliary input and USB port.

The Hybrid SE ($27,355) adds SecuriCode keypad access, an 8-way power driver's seat, a 6-way power front passenger seat and satellite radio. It's also eligible for some options that don't apply to the S, such as LED lighting, remote start, self-dimming mirrors, heated exterior mirrors with puddle lamps, leather upholstery, heated front seats with driver's-side memory function, a 110-volt outlet, rear parking sensors and the SYNC 3 infotainment system with a second USB port, an 8-in touchscreen and 11 speakers.

The Hybrid Titanium ($31,885) has those options as standard, plus 18-in wheels, keyless entry/start, sport front seats, an 8-way power front passenger seat, HD Radio and an exclusive 12-speaker Sony audio system.

Other options include navigation, automated parallel parking, a heated steering wheel, rain-sensing wipers, automatic high beams, a sunroof (SE and Titanium) and ventilated front seats (Titanium).

The Platinum ($37,895) has everything listed so far as standard, plus a power-adjustable steering column and nicer leather.

The only other extras are inflatable seat belts for the outer rear seats, which can be fitted to any version.

A rather crudely installed lithium-ion battery pack reduces cargo capacity compared to the regular Fusion. But in fairness, trunk space of 12 cu ft. isn't bad by hybrid standards.
