I’ve always been a fan of the Fusion but never drove or got experience in one. Got one for my business trip this week with two coworkers. I really like it. Ended up with a hybrid, 7.5 gallons of 87 ($20 in Knoxville) got me ~320 miles or so, vs 250-275 MAYBE for $35 of premium in the FoST (different cars, I know but it stands). Averaging about 42 MPG even with an hour of crawling traffic in Cincinnati at the beginning.
I don’t even mind the cvt that much. If I had a second fun/project car, I wouldn’t mind this for a DD. Lots of space, and a comfortable drive/seat.
