2. Superior In-Car Technology
MyFord Touch has been automotive journalism’s whipping boy since its introduction a few years ago. Sure, the infotainment technology has had more than its share of issues, from crashes (the software, not the vehicles) to random reboots to sluggish performance, but the software that’s out today is dramatically better than version one, and in my experience it’s just about trouble free.
With a little practice MyFord Touch is straightforward and easy to use. For instance, connecting your smartphone via Bluetooth is a snap. Overall it’s far better and much easier to comprehend than the steaming pile of feculence that passes for “technology” in the Rapide S.
The Aston treats passengers to a cumbersome infotainment system with an obtuse interface and pixilated display screens that look like they were ripped off a dollar store cash register. This has absolutely no place in a $218,000 super-sedan, much less a midsize four-door like the Fusion.
