2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid
Ford's Fusion Hybrid is firing on all cylinders -- except for the times it's not firing on any of them when its electric motor is handling motivational duties. Strong Ford Sync-based dashboard tech, available automatic parallel parking, and a handsome design make the 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid (and its conventionally powered twin) the American midsize sedan to beat.

The good: Although it fell short of its EPA rating in our tests, the 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid still gets excellent fuel economy. Sync voice command gives control over personal electronics. Driver assistance features equal those of much more expensive cars.
The bad: MyFord Touch responds slowly to touch-screen input, and, when optioned, eliminates the Sync AppLink feature.
The bottom line: The 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid looks good and can be had with very advanced driver assistance features, but buyers should expect fuel economy averaging around 40 mpg instead of the 47 mpg EPA test number.
