The Fusion has a wide and solid stance and a highly refined exterior. It has a hit of Audi, Jaguar and even a bit of Aston Martin in its look.

 Ford says 70% of consumers see midsize sedans as a lookalike group
43% who trade theirs in say they did so just to have something different.

The Fusion cuts through this, falling into Kia Optima and Hyundai Sonata territory for outside-the-box styling. Design cues mirror the Evos Concept from last year's Frankfurt Motor Show, with thin headlamps that sweep clear toward the front fenders and a low, forward grille. The beltline stays visually flat — in contrast to the rising lines on most sedans — and the bumper runs flush with the trunk lid, with integrated tailpipes beneath. Wheels range from 16 to 19 inches, and trim levels include the S, SE and Titanium. There will also be Fusion Hybrid and plug-in Energi models; the Energy arrives closer to the end of the year..
