Every small family needs a reliable vehicle that is affordable and has plenty of options. That’s why the 2014 Ford Fusion SE is such a wonderful choice. It delivers a quiet ride that is suitable for even the youngest of children. With its wide array of electronic functions, this midsize sedan is a top pick.
Under the hood rests a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 175 hp and 175 pound-feet of torque. Equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, it has a fuel economy set at 26 mpg combined (22 city/34 highway). The trunk boasts 16 cubic feet of space, which is ample for groceries, luggage, and holiday shopping. What’s even more impressive is that this model scored a solid five-star rating for overall protection in government-conducted crash tests.
The SE trim level includes 17-inch alloy wheels and heated side mirrors that will come in handy this winter. The driver’s seat provides lumbar support for comfort during long trips, and the rear air vents keep backseat passengers cool in the summer.
