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.

Equipment

The Fusion was originally available in three trim levels of (very simply) 1,2 and 3. It then changed to Style, Style Climate, Zetec Climate and Fusion+ before finally ending up changing again to reflect Ford’s trim levels on other models. So the Fusion was then offered in Zetec and Titanium levels, with Zetec offering a more affordable way into ownership and Titanium majoring on a long list of standard Ford Fusion equipment.

Standard equipment

The Zetec is the starting point of the Fusion line-up and comes with air conditioning, electric windows all-round and electrically worked door mirrors. It also has central locking and power steering, along with Ford’s very useful heated windscreen as standard. This Quickclear windscreen has heater elements running through it that demist the screen in next to no time, which is a real boon on cold and damp mornings. The Titanium takes the list of luxury items further with an adjustable driver’s seat, uprated CD stereo, rain-sensing wipers, alloy wheels and an alarm. Every fusion comes with a 60/40 split and fold rear seat to add to the generous boot space, and the front passenger seat can also be folded forward to cope with longer loads. The front passenger seat also has an integrated work surface on it that, when the seat is folded forward, is ideal as a picnic table or place to stow loose items while driving.

Ford Fusion accessories

It’s a shame Ford does not supply an alarm as standard with the Zetec version of the Fusion as it’s part of the equipment list of the Titanium model. Buyers of the Zetec version of the Fusion will also have to fork out extra if they want alloy wheels or a better stereo system. A CD multichanger and DVD player are options for both models of Fusion. While driver and passenger airbags are standard, you will have to pay more for a pack that includes side and curtain airbags, though it’s worth spending this money as you also get ESP stability control that is not supplied as standard by Ford. Metallic paint is a popular addition to the Fusion, along with tinted rear windows.
