If you’re on the lookout for a fun-to-drive eco-friendly car, consider a used 2017 Ford Fusion Hybrid SE.
A 141-hp Atkinson cycle four-cylinder engine works in tandem with a 118 horsepower electric motor to keep the Fusion Hybrid in motion. The latter is fed by a 1.4-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which is recharged by braking and a generator. Through their combined efforts, this sleek sedan delivers a stellar fuel economy of 43 mpg city/42 highway.
But this vehicle offers so much more than a great EPA rating. The 129 pound-feet of torque effortlessly propels you from one stoplight to the next without jerking you back and forth each time. Car and Driver found that the Fusion’s steering was well weighted and braking was responsive.
The SE trim level is fitted with exterior keypad entry, rear air vents, and LED ambiance lighting. Long journeys are no problem, thanks to an eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar. The front passenger can move his or her chair in six-directions to find the perfect position, so don’t be surprised if your copilot dozes off mid-road trip.
