Just like the rest of the Fusion lineup, this hybrid model may or may not be discontinued in the futures, but the 2020 Ford Fusion Hybrid will definitely come. It could easily be one of the last year models, if the company decides to drop this mid-size sedan. In any way, we won’t see bigger changes. It will continue in the same way, to deliver good ride characteristics and fuel economy, along with a well-designed interior design and lots of standard equipment. Powertrain department definitely won’t feature any revisions in the future.
- Great handling
- Lots of legroom
- Long list of standard features
- Poor rear visibility
- Below-average cargo capacity
- Rivals are more powerful and feature better fuel economy
From the outside, this model doesn’t look much different than the base gasoline model. A familiar layout has been updated recently and comes with a nice amount of new details, especially at the front. Other than that, it continues with a familiar shape, in a common sedan layout. Mechanics are pretty much the same as on the model that came five years ago when the current generation came.
The first thing you’ll notice inside the 2020 Ford Fusion Hybrid is a well-built cabin, which features lots of quality materials and very pleasant look. It definitely looks upscale, which isn’t so often when it comes to hybrid cars. Thanks to a long wheelbase, you can count on lots of space on the inside. Both rows offer plenty of legroom. On the other side, cargo capacity isn’t that generous. You can count on 12 cubic feet behind rear seats, which is among lowest numbers in the segment of mid-size sedans, even among hybrid models. Also, a poor rear visibility is another drawback. On the other side, you can count on generous list of standard equipment. Even the most basic models come with standard features like an 8.0-inch touchscreen, navigation, smartphone integration, Wi-Fi hotspot, nine-speaker audio etc.
Good driving characteristic are the thing that definitely make this sedan stand out. Compared to other hybrids, it offers better handling, despite the fact it features less power. It comes with a hybrid system that is based on a 2.0-liter gasoline engine and 1.4-kWh battery pack. A total output goes around 188 horsepower, which seems a little bit underpowered compared to biggest rivals. Fuel economy is good, but other hybrids in the segment return more. Count on something like 43 mpg in the city and 41 on the highway.
