Used Ford Fusion (2002 - 2012) Costs

Last Updated: 25 Mar 2013
The Ford Fusion is based on the Fiesta but aims to offer a more practical car with some SUV-like styling. It has taller sides than a Fiesta and a higher set driving position, though this is no lofty 4x4.

Running costs

Ford Fusion running costs don’t pose a huge problem. The brick-like aerodynamics mean the Fusion isn't as fuel efficient as the Fiesta, but costs are still reasonable. Ford parts and servicing costs are fairly low, while insurance groups are low. High spec Fusions are over laden with technical wizardry, and are overly priced accordingly: a lot of the gadgets are simply a pleasantry and not a necessity.
