User Reviews for 2017 Ford Fusion
"Negatives first. Seats are uncomfortable, sparsely padded. Trunk is tiny in the hybrid. No spare tire. Initial quality of fitment of body panels very poor. OEM wiper blades streak. OEM radio antenna reception just so-so. Back up camera just about useless. That said the car has impeccable road manners,quiet and just generally fun to drive. The MPG is very very close to stated (depends on type of driver you are) about 42.5 for this owner. The outside mirrors work extremely well. AC gets car cool quick/ dual zone nice option. The sunvisor extends. Easy to read instrument panel ( MYVIEW have the water temp and rpms displayed). Great front cabin storage from glove box to center console. Sync3 is a good option. "
Seats are a bit uncomfortable for a 300lb guy. Fantastic instrument layout everything easy to read. Buttons are lit when on. AC cools car quickly. Dual zone a nice feature. Glove box and center console storage is excellent design for front seat occupants. See family friendly for rear seat. More than adequate leg room for a 6'5" guy. The trunk in the hybrid is 2 tier and small. Bought a full size spare tire, it resides on the 2nd tier. Back up camera useless during daylight hours. Glare from dashboard and the roof pillars is noticeable but doesn't affect driving. The nine speaker noise cancelling system works quite well.
Gorgeous appearance. The cars overall looks gets remarks from strangers all the time. Have to admit don't personally like the chrome strip between rear lights. And the gas cover is extremely awkward feels poorly constructed. The hood seems very flimsy. Still works as a hood should. Had to have fitment issues resolved.
Not a sports car. A sedan with impeccable road manners. The Hybrid gets good gas mpg. Accelerates competently but not as fast as other cars. Corners very well expected it to be clumsy. The car feels secure.
The lack of a fold down center console in the rear seating of Hybrid S model is disconcerting. The first time in my car 6 year old grandaughter spilled a drink looking for someplace to set it. That said rear storage is horrendous. Cabin is generally spacious.
Only wanted 40 mpg getting 42.5. My mechanic stated that this car would be inexpensive to run. Time will tell.
Lots of bang for the buck
"I bought a lightly used 2017 Ford Fusion Titanium AWD. I have rented Fusions frequently and of all the cars I drove in that class the Fusion always was the most satisfying to drive. The AWD is even more so with a little extra weight but no less power from the 2.0 Ecoboost engine. This model is heavily optioned and just a super nice car with great looks with the 'extras' the Titanium package adds both in options and appearance. The 19" premium wheels really give this car a anchored to the road feel but without being muddy. Steering is quick and brakes are sure. Fit and finish is great inside and out and the LED lights inside and out are super nice (ambient interior lighting in a variety of color choices). I've driven this car on long road trips and its a pleasure to drive (and fun in sport mode). I would highly recommend this car to anyone wanting a reasonably priced car with lots of bang for the buck. "
Leather and carpets are high quality with interior styling that is superior in my opinion.
Fit and finish is near perfect even after having one previous owner who only put 4600 miles on it.
The 2.0 Ecoboost engine has plenty of power for this size of car and in sport mode really scoots and corners!
With a large trunk and 4 doors, this is a very sporty family sedan.
Fuel mileage has been above manufacturer specifications except when used in 'sport mode'...fun does have it's price but it's well worth it! Just cruising down the road it sips fuel for long hauls between fill ups. There have been a couple of minor performance issues, one a brake vibration, that the dealer took care of easily and at no charge. Cheap to keep!
"I owned a 2014 Ford Fusion SE before I bought the 2017. It is a great car to drive around town and excellent highway car. The gas mileage and performance deliver every time I drive it. "
The power seats for both the driver and passenger. Also ease of operation of all interior controls. Not difficult to use. Also have leather seats and have a very comfortable feel.
Have a wine color exterior and the look is great. The style that Ford has given the fusion is very stylish.
Have the 1.5 engine in the vehicle. I have owned 8 cylinder vehicles my entire life until the fusion. It gives me all the power I want and extra power with the echo boost.
Has room for 5 people. Easy to get into and out. Take my grand kids in it and have no problem with the comfort.
Not expensive to drive. If the regular maintenance is done in a timely manner, the car is very affordable.

"I really do l love this car. It's roomy, sips gas, has Android and Apple Car Play, 11 speakers, is a great color and all-around just looks great. If you're thinking about a plug-in hybrid, this is a solid choice. "
Leather, heated seats, sound system, Apple Car Play
It's really sporty looking, while still being a sedan.
It's a plug-in hybrid and my expectations were low. However, it performs great and handles well at all speeds.
I would imagine so, but I don't have a family.
It's a plug-in hybrid. I mean, how much more cost-effective can you get?
"Love the way it drives, and features. Good looking car. It's a turbo 4 with all weather drive. I love the color and the way it performs is outstanding. "
"Great vehicle cost effective smooth ride. Love this car, lots of room. Would purchase again if had to get another car. Ford's are so reliable. Great vehicle!!!!"
Style and rims
Better than anything else I looked at
"Power. Handling an style. Nothing can match it at this price point. Audi A4 or BMW 335 are closest competition but cost $10,000 more when closely equipped,"
Spacious. Heated and cooled seats. Heated seats. Rear seatbelt airbags
Classy and sporty at the same time.
Twin Turbo V6 in sport mode will put a smile on your face.
Roomy. large trunk. Lots of interior storage. Very quiet ride.
Gives up some fuel economy for the performance.
Great car and value
"The Fusion SE 1.5L Ecoboost is a great road performer with a supple ride, great leather inteior, and easy to use controls. Go for the Luxury Package and navigation."
