This model is a small simple car that has been formerly referred to as a previous generation Fiesta with a good comfortable drive. There are only minor differences between the Fiesta and the Ford and it is likely that the Ford was aiming to achieve the same as the Fiesta. When launched the sales of this car were considerably high for a Ford and it more than accomplished its aims. The car has an extended roofline and has been made with hardwearing plastics and with an ability to last. The tail of the model has a semi estate vehicle style. For anyone looking for something simple yet pleasant and comfortable then this Ford is suitable. It is perfect for families as well as a single person. It is also suitable for the young learner or the elderly.
There is a range of engines available. It has two diesel engines and two petrol engines. The petrol options are the 1.4 and the 1.6 litre that offer a smooth, easy and calm drive. While in the city they offer a quiet and peaceful ride and on the motorway though there is noise it’s not terribly unbearable. The most popular in the market is the 1.4 litre as it works out more economical. The Fusion offers a firm and precise ride and the exterior has a raised roof giving it an even more firm drive. Though the Ford Fusion is the neither flashiest ride nor the most updated it definitely has a safety level that is hard to beat. It is a safe car that was rated 4 stars in the Euro Ncap crash test.
All other models have front airbags with an option of extra side airbags and also curtain ones. Ford Fusion gives a reliable and comfortable ride. Ford’s Fiesta is undoubtedly one of the best superminis to drive. What it lacks is practicality of some of its rivals. Although, the Fusion is taller and more spacious, but it not as practical as the Fiesta. It is expensive too but its handling is worth the price and is as good as Fiesta. The ride is harder than the Fiesta, and because it is a heavier car, performance is also lags behind Fiesta. Some Fusions have been reported having suffered from water leaks in to the cabin.
The Ford Fusion has the same running costs as the Fiesta and is not overly expensive to run or to service. The diesel versions have the capability of around 60mpg yet they are abit more expensive then the petrol versions and it is an option for anyone who wants to cover miles but not spend too much on petrol. When it comes to equipment the good thing is that even the basic models have enough equipment to make the ride more comfortable. Considering what it would cost to install these functions it’s a good bargain that they come as standard. Some of these include electric windows and mirrors, a CD and stereo player, heated con and air conditioning.
