Did the Toyota Prius finally get its first real competitor? The 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid has an EPA estimated at 47-mpg city and highway, and will start with a base price of just $27,200.

The 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid, with a 188-hp combined system output, has the most impressive fuel economy figures compared to its main competitors the 2012 Kia Optima Hybrid, 2012 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, and the 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid. It does however carry a higher MSRP of $27,895 with the $795 destination and handling fee included.

To compare, the Camry Hybrid does have slightly better performance with a combined system 200-hp, but has an estimated 43-mpg, 39-mpg highway rating and is priced over $1,000 lower than the Fusion Hybrid. But that may be a small price to pay for the increased fuel economy figures – not to mention its surprisingly good looks.

The big question is how the 2013 Fusion Hybrid drives, and how its interior feels compared to its main competitors. But there’s a good chance that the Japenese and Korean automakers finally have a formidable opponent in the hybrid market.

     Oh! We forgot, those Asians are so so smart and we Americans are so dumb. I don’t know what country your from, but I hope it’s not the USA. Here in the USA when we make our minds to make the best, we do it. It just so happens, we have made our minds.

    The 2013 Malibu is the class leader for now, but this new Fusion is a strong contender.

    :”Finally”? Gee, seems to Ford’s Fusion has been leading it’s rivals (Camry/Altima/Optima/Sonata) in Hybrids for quite some time. 33/33/35/35 combined driving 2011 sedans verses 41 for the Fusion.

    edit that’s CITY mileage

     HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I can’t stop laughing. The Malibu IS NOT and NEVER WILL BE a class leader. In fact… it might be the WORST family sedan you can buy.
