Which Fusion is the Best?

The SE version is only marginally more expensive than the base S, but brings more equipment and greater eligibility for options. So that would be our choice, adding some options to taste. But if your budget allows you to aim higher, go right ahead.

How Much Does a 2018 Ford Fusion Cost?

The 2018 Ford Fusion Hybrid is available in S, SE, Titanium and Platinum trim levels.

The Hybrid S ($26,265) starts with 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, dual LCD EcoGuide displays, tilt-telescopic steering wheel with auxiliary controls, height-adjustable manual driver's seat, 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.

Hybrid SE ($27,215) adds SecuriCode keypad access, 8-way power driver's seat, 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, 110-volt outlet, rear parking sensors, the Sync 3 infotainment system with a second USB port, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, an 8-in touchscreen and 11 speakers.

Hybrid Titanium ($31,745) has those options as standard, plus 18-in wheels, keyless entry/start, sport front seats, 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 SE and Titanium are also eligible for a self-dimming rearview mirror, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control with pedestrian detection, forward-collision mitigation, lane-keep assist and an automated parking feature for parallel and perpendicular spaces.

Platinum ($38,245) 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, and they can be fitted to any version.

A rather crudely installed lithium-ion battery pack reduces cargo capacity compared with the regular Fusion. But in fairness, trunk space of 12 cu ft. isn't bad by hybrid standards, and at least the rear seats can fold down.

Competition

2018 Ford Fusion vs the competition

2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid -- All-new for 2018 and capable of 52 mpg combined. Clever packaging means trunk space is unaffected, so there's 15.1 cu ft. to use.

2018 Honda Accord Hybrid -- Also brand-new for 2018. Achieves 50 mpg combined and comes with 17 cu ft. of trunk space.

2018 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid -- Well-priced, well-equipped, well-made and achieves 42 mpg combined. There's a plug-in hybrid variant as well. Updated for 2018.

2018 Kia Optima Hybrid -- Essentially the same as the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. Neither model beats the Fusion Hybrid on trunk space.

Used Lexus ES 300h -- Essentially a luxurious version of the previous-generation Camry Hybrid, the ES 300h can be acquired at a considerable discount via the Lexus certified pre-owned (CPO) program.
