This SE Ecoboost AWD Fusion is well equipped with Sport seats, Sport Package, Luxury Package, 18" Alloy Wheels, AM/FM/CD/Satellite Radio, Paddle Shifters, Backup Camera and Rear Spoiler.
One of the Fusion's best traits is its blend of a comfortable ride and agile handling. The car took 27.4 seconds to finish Motor Trend's figure-eight course while generating a 0.61 g average and put up 0.83 g of lateral acceleration on the skidpad. Combined with the light yet responsive steering, the Fusion is fun to pilot down twisty mountain roads. The Fusion's reassuring brakes, which have good pedal feel, complement its excellent chassis and steering. Stopping from 60 mph took 119 feet, which is shorter than most of its direct competitors, such as the Kia Optima LX 1.6T and the Mazda6. Thanks to the 235/40R17 tires on our test car's 17-inch alloy wheels, the Fusion grips well and never felt like it was fighting you when driven hard down a challenging winding road.
Unlike the Toyota Camry and other competitors, the Fusion doesn't feel like it's floating when going over bumps, and it maintains its composure over less than perfect pavement. Although the suspension does a nice job at keeping road impacts and imperfections out, vibrations still get transmitted into the cabin, and occupants will feel it through the seats. There are also times while driving over rough surfaces that the ride can get busy because of the suspension being tuned slightly toward the sporty end of the spectrum.
