2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid
Availability: Fall, 2012
The outlook: Ford gave its Fusion mid-size sedan a big update, which included the hybrid model. The new Fusion Hybrid gets fuel economy in the mid-40s, approaching that of the Toyota Prius. It can also be had with a number of driver assistance technologies, such as blind spot monitoring, lane departure prevention, and automatic parking.

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.
