Car and Driver was impressed with the Ford Fusion Hybrid, writing: “While many hybrid-sedan shoppers may automatically go to Toyota because of that brand's pioneering reputation with such powertrains, they'll be doing themselves a disservice if they don't first consider the alternatives. The Fusion's superior refinement and attractive design make a strong argument, especially for those who'd enjoy the Platinum version's plush environs.”

Powering the Fusion Hybrid is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine that works in tandem with an electric motor to generate a total of 188 horsepower and 129 lb.-ft. of torque, connected to a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
