2017 Ford Fusion Interior

The biggest change when it comes to the interior for the Ford Fusion is the additional of the new Synch 3 infotainment system, which reacts quicker to commands and is easier to use than last year’s MyFord Touch technology. This infotainment system is available with the SE model’s optional Technology package, which also adds an 11-speaker sound system and dual-zone climate control to the Fusion. As for cargo room, the Fusion’s trunk provides 16-cubic feet of available storage space. However, the hybrid and plug-in hyrbid models only provide 8.2 cubic feet because the battery takes up some of the cargo space.
