Armed with what is arguably the best manifestation of Ford’s latest ‘Kinetic’ design language, its interior stylists have gone a long way to ensure that the cabin has a premium feel, thanks to high-quality materials and LED lighting.
With a host of new gadgets, the Fusion offers the driver features such as lane departure warning, driver alert and auto high beam. Ford is mum on engine line-ups, but industry insiders have said we can expect a version or two of Ford’s new EcoBoost turbopetrol line-up to feature. Overseas, the fusion is currently offered in various versions, ranging from a 92kW one-litre three-cylinder to a 178kW two-litre four. The most likely options for South Africa are the 133kW 1.5-litre turbopetrol and two-litre TDCI turbodiesel.
Delivering on the design, technology and quality advancements, the Fusion demonstrates the key role this model will play when introduced in South Africa. The fusion is a large car without feeling the need to sacrifice on space, performance, driving enjoyment or the selection of driver assistance technologies.”
