The approaching 2020 Ford Fusion Hybrid continues with minor tweaks each year. Whatsoever, the current generation is present for almost seven years. In its segments, Fusion’s competitors are all-new. However, Fusion comes with some sort of tradition and a long list of standard features. The interior is very inviting, and its trunk is spacious.
Last year, Fusion Hybrid arrived with new driver-assistance features. On the other hand, the 2020 model will offer only minor upgrades. Whatsoever, Blue Oval reduced the number of front seat adjustments. Still, this car manages to deliver quality ride, modern styling, and reliable fuel economy figures.
2020 Fusion Hybrid Offers Sleek Exterior Design
While it is waiting for its significant redesign, the new 2020 Ford Fusion Hybrid still looks classy. Dimensionally, nothing will change, and this car looks longer than it is. We like the sweeping roof, but this type of styling reduces the rear visibility inside the cabin.
Upfront, the grille is Aston Martin-Esque. On top of that, headlights are narrow, and overall, it is a competitive design by Blue Oval. As for the changes, don’t expect any significant upgrade. Whatsoever, the only visual update is bolder bumpers and slightly improved aerodynamics.
If you think the interior is not pleasant and inviting, then something is wrong with you. The upcoming 2020 Ford Fusion Hybrid comes with one of the best cabin designs in its respective segment. On top of that, have in mind that all of its rivals are all-new. Fusion’s current generation is present for over six years. Legroom is ample, even in the back. The headroom is also generous, thanks to a sloping roofline design. However, the same roofline lowers rear-window visibility.
However, Fusion Hybrid offers a rearview camera and rear parking sensors. The base model comes with a tiny 4.2-inch display. We highly recommend an optional 8.0-inch touchscreen that is standard on higher trim levels. Last year’s model arrived with new driver-assistance features. The 2020 Fusion Hybrid will hit the roads with the latest high-tech updates. Besides that, the cabin will stay intact.
MPG, Transmission, Acceleration
The forthcoming mid-size sedan is once again powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. This unit works great in combination with an electric motor and the battery pack. The all-new 2020 Ford Fusion Hybrid is producing 188 horsepower. It comes with a standard FWD setup and optional AWD. A CVT transmission is also in the offer. As for the acceleration, Fusion Hybrid needs nine seconds to reach 60 mph.
However, this is an average time for the segment. This car comes with sporty handling, but its fuel economy could’ve been better. Fusion Hybrid is rated at 43 mpg in the city and 41 mpg on the highway. Those figures are below the values of Accord and Camry models.
2020 Ford Fusion Hybrid Price and Release Date
Blue Oval plans to release its new mid-size sedan in one-month time. It is a matter of days, according to reliable reports. New 2020 Ford Fusion Hybrid will cost $28,000. The mid-range SEL trim level is priced at $32,000 and Titanium at $35,000.
