Here is the new 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid, a more refined and quietly efficient four-door car. There are no much different than the previous model, which means that we have to look closer to see all the cosmetic change in this fine mid-size sedan.
In a way to change and improve the look of the new 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid, designers have spent a lot of time. In the first line, we can spot changes on the front grille which is slightly wider and a little lower than before to give the front end a lower look. On the S and SE model of this car, we can see brand new lights which are using projector-beam-style halogen lights, while the Platinum and Titanium models have standard LED lights. On the back side of the car, backlights are dressed up by a chrome spear, without any changes than the previous model. We can add to this that the side doors are big and open wide, which make easy entering and getting out for more corpulent passengers.
The interior of the new 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid is also changed not to look different than before, but to be improved. A new gear selector is not a shift lever, but the metal wheel which gives us a more space for driver and side passenger for at least two cups, and good armrest. In the center, we can see a new 8.0 inch TFT monitor with new SYNC 3 installed, which provide us an easier control on audio, phone and navigation system. The seats along with control panel are covered with the finest leather, so-called Venetian leather. This leather is also on the steering wheel and the armrest, which increase comfort even in a longer traveling. There is also a cooler and heater in the seats. This car is filled with driver-assistance technology which provides us an active cruise control, blind spot monitoring, automatic parking.
