  2013 Fusion Hybrid is way better than Camry
Anonymous

Compared to 2013 Ford Fusion (Silver)

Best Reason to Buy the Ford Fusion: Front seat support & comfort
Being 6' 3" it can be hard to find a car where I have sufficient legroom & headroom. In the Fusion Hybrid there was lots of space, even with a sunroof. There are also padded surfaces where my left knee rests against the door and where my right leg rests against the center console. The Camry Hybrid was not comfortable. The doors are hard plastic and there was no soft place to rest my knee. The center console was also hard plastic.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Ford Fusion: Cargo capacity
The trunk is a odd shape because of the hybrid batteries. It is very deep but not very tall. This is somewhat made up for by the fact that the rear seats fold down. The Camry does not offer rear folding seats but does have a more useful trunk space for times that you're using just the trunk space without folding down seats.

  One Beautiful Well Made Car

Compared to 2013 Ford Fusion (Silver)

Best Reason to Buy the Ford Fusion: Exterior styling
This is a beautiful car especially from the front! That alone is why I brought it. The majority of cars in the so called mid size family sedan class don't hold a candle to it. To me the exterior fit & finish is on par with its foreign competition.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Ford Fusion: Feature availability
I don't like that I can't get leather/heated seats & fog lamp package with the standard 2.5L engine.

Best Reason to Buy the Ford Fusion: Audio & nav systems
The bluetooth system did an excellent job connecting to my phone and the quality was excellent. However, I'll address the interface in the "cons" section.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Ford Fusion: Front seat support & comfort
The driver's seat was atrocious to get set - took forever (three drives over 2 days) with a zillion directions to move the seat - more adjustments does not mean more comfortable!!

Best Reason to Buy the Ford Fusion: Ride smoothness
Drove a 2013 Ford Fusion, along with Kia Optima, Hyundai Sonata, and Honda Accord. Had also driven Chevy Camaro. All had caught my eye, and wanted to see what they were like to drive. Not planning to trade my 2011 Camry Base. Liked the Camaro, and Fusion. Wanted to drive the Fusion again, so did, and got a good deal, so bought one. S, like it. 18.5mpg around town, but not unhappy. 30's on back roads, and highway. Camaro a little more expensive. Maybe next time. Really like it. Hope it's reliable. Also liked Kia Optima. A bit of oversteer, otherwise I'd have considered buying one.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Ford Fusion: Fuel economy
18.5mpg, vs 22mpg rated city driving. Not disatisfied. Really like the car, so don't care.

  Love my Fusion!

Compared to 2013 Ford Fusion (Silver)

Best Reason to Buy the Ford Fusion: Quietness
Overall the car is significantly quieter than similar midsize cars. Road isolation is excellent without removing road feel altogether.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Ford Fusion: Fuel economy
My primary complaint with the vehicle as a whole definitely comes down to fuel economy. I've owned several other vehicles that should generally be less economical that actually are almost the same. My primary example is one of my previous cars, a supercharged 1996 Buick Park Avenue. Overall average fuel economy with that Buick was about 20, with 70% city driving. Overall fuel economy with my V6 3.0 Fusion is...about 20 with the same driving conditions. Its to be noted that car's posted fuel economy figures for highway driving aren't really attainable. 240 HP in a midsize car isn't bad...but I sometimes wish I'd gotten the 4 cylinder.

Best Reason to Buy the Ford Fusion: Fuel economy
The Fusion Hybrid when driven as outlined in the owner’s manual rewards you with the best in class fuel economy which is far above the advertized mileage for the car. The car has great power which is on par with the V6 version of the same car. I now have

clean, smooth lines.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Ford Fusion: Powertrain performance
Awkward shifting transmission in manual mode as well as auto, especially when going from 2d to third (tends to pop into neutral as the revs pick up in second, then jumps into third); too slow to shift between gears, too quick to select first gear.

Was looking for a hybrid. Based on magazine reviews, I narrowed it to this or a Prius.
