As hybrid technology becomes easier to produce, the demand for these eco-friendly vehicles continues to increase year over year. That puts the pressure on the manufacturers to step up and focus their efforts on both producing the most efficient and the more stylish hybrids.
Ford Motor Company has emerged as the industry leader with their completely redesigned 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid. The Fusion has a 2.0L engine with a total 188 horsepower that produces 47 miles per gallon for city, highway and combined. According to U.S. News & World Report, the 2013 Ford Fusion ranked #1 in the most affordable midsize car and hybrid car. Not only is the Ford Fusion affordable with excellent fuel economy, but it also comes with Ford EcoGuide which coaches you to get the best MPG. Other technology available includes MyFord Touch, which allows drivers to access to their phone, navigation, climate and entertainment all hands-free.
The 2013 Toyota Camry hybrid didn’t fall too short, and took the #2 spot as the most affordable midsize car, according to U.S. News & World Report. The Camry has a 2.5L engine and gets up to 43 city and 39 highway miles per gallon — which is less than the Fusion. Toyota offers the Entune infotainment system, which syncs with your smartphone and uses your data plan to access things like Bing and Pandora.
Overall it’s pretty clear the Ford Fusion is the winner in this segment based on exterior, interior performance and technology. When you have made up your mind, visit ReedHasIt.com to schedule a test drive of the 2013 Ford Fusion.
