2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid

What’s New for the 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid?

The 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid is redesigned with more dramatic styling, better fuel economy, and MyFord Touch technology.

2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid Exterior

The 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid took styling to another level for the 2nd generation of the model. The elegant poise, curvaceous sheet metal, and wider body give it a sportier and more upscale look than its predecessor. It’s also got that large trapezoidal grille in the front makes it look more like an Aston Martin than the average 5-door sedan you’ll come across on the road.

2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid Performance

The 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder paired to an electric motor, which gets its own power from a lithium-ion battery pack. Together, they produce 188 total system horsepower and 129 pound-feet of torque, transmitted via a specialized continuously variable transmission.

2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid Efficiency

The 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid gets 47 mpg in the city, 47 mpg on the highway, and—you’ve guessed it—47 mpg combined. It’s the most efficient midsize hybrid sedan available and only just slightly less economical than the Prius despite offering much better performance.

2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid Interior

The 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid features a stylish interior with high quality materials, an uncluttered and tastefully designed dashboard and center stack, and a highly adjustable power driver seat that allows anyone to get comfortable behind the wheel. Though outward visibility has been improved, trunk space has been reduced ever slightly—though it still stands at 16 cubic feet, which higher than average for the class. Headroom is also slightly reduced because of the battery pack under the car.

2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid Safety

The 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid comes standard with antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, front seat side airbags, front knee airbags, and side curtain airbags. It was named a Top Safety Pick+ by the IIHS, the highest possible honor, and received a maximum 5-star score for Overall Vehicle Safety in the NHTSA’s New Car Assessment Program.
