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.
