2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid Overview

Is the 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid a Good Used Car?

If you’re looking for excellent fuel economy, the smooth-running Fusion Hybrid is worth your consideration. On the other hand, its infotainment system can be sluggish, much like its highway acceleration.

A four-cylinder engine and electric motor combo give the Fusion Hybrid brisk acceleration from a stop. However, it doesn’t have the same gusto when passing and merging on the highway. Fuel economy is great for the class and for a hybrid: 43 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway. It handles corners well for a hybrid, though it doesn’t feel as responsive as many of its gas-only rivals do. Also, the Fusion Hybrid rides comfortably, and sound insulation is fantastic, making the ride quiet. On the downside, the regenerative brakes feel grabby.

The Fusion Hybrid seats five and provides great comfort and support, with ample head- and legroom for rear-seat passengers. You should go for the leather upholstery, as the standard eco-friendly seat fabric feels low-rent. Otherwise, interior materials quality is excellent for the price. There is a complete set of anchors on each of the outboard rear seats and a tether-only connector in the middle seat for installing car seats.

Standard features include dual-zone automatic climate control and Ford's SYNC system, which comes with a six-speaker stereo, a USB port, and Bluetooth. Ford’s MyKey is also standard and allows you to set vehicle speed and audio volume limits. Upper trims have the MyFord Touch infotainment system, but it’s sluggish and difficult to use. With this system, climate controls use the touch interface, which can be annoying. The Fusion Hybrid’s 12-cubic-foot trunk is smaller than those of most affordable midsize cars, and it's slightly smaller than those of other midsize hybrid sedans.

Should I Consider Another Used Fusion Hybrid?

The second generation of the Fusion Hybrid started with the 2013 model year and includes 2017. There is little difference in features between the 2013 and 2014 models, and you can save some money by getting the older one. The 2015 Fusion Hybrid comes standard with a rearview camera, but a 2015 model will likely cost you more than a 2014.

Which Used Ford Fusion Hybrid Is Right for Me?

The Fusion Hybrid comes in three trims: S, SE, and Titanium. The Titanium trim is the best choice because it comes with the most popular features. You’ll get leather upholstery, remote start, a proximity key, a rearview camera with rear parking sensors, and an upgraded infotainment system.

A certified pre-owned Fusion Hybrid might cost you a little more, but spending the extra money may be worth it. Ford extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles and provides a one-year/12,000-mile limited warranty. Each CPO vehicle must pass a 172-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Ford warranty page carefully.

2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid and Other Cars to Consider

Which Is Better: 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid or 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid?

Both the Fusion Hybrid and the Honda Accord Hybrid provide brisk acceleration from a stop, smooth gas-electric powertrain transitions, and a roomy interior. However, the Accord Hybrid is the better choice. It’s more of a fuel miser than the Fusion Hybrid, saving you about $100 annually. Despite its efficiency, the Accord Hybrid produces more power. It also feels more confident around turns than the Fusion Hybrid. While the Ford’s brakes are grabby, the Honda’s feel more like traditional brakes. Unlike the Fusion Hybrid’s MyFord infotainment system, the Accord Hybrid’s system works without issues.

Which Is Better: 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid or 2014 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid?

Compared to the Fusion Hybrid, the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is neither as fuel-efficient nor as fun to drive. Its throttle responses are dull, and ride quality suffers over broken pavement. Additionally, the Sonata Hybrid’s fuel costs are about $100 higher than the Fusion Hybrid's. Despite all that, the Sonata is a better choice. It offers more power, a much better reliability rating, and smoother regenerative brakes that don’t feel touchy. Also, it comes standard with features that the Fusion Hybrid doesn’t, such as a proximity key, push-button start, satellite radio, a rearview camera, and HD Radio.

Which Is Better: 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid or 2014 Ford Fusion Energi?

Like the Fusion Hybrid, the Ford Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid provides eager acceleration from a stop, smooth transitions between gas and electric power, good handling ability for a hybrid, and plenty of room for passengers. However, both suffer from meager power on the highway and grabby regenerative brakes. The Energi has a 20-mile all-electric range, which makes it great for short commutes. After that, the Energi switches to gas-electric power, with performance and gas mileage similar to the Fusion Hybrid. Because of the added weight of the Energi’s battery, its ride quality suffers compared to its hybrid stablemate. Also, the Energi’s trunk is 3.8 cubic feet smaller than the Hybrid’s, which is about the size of one large suitcase. Though it’s a close call, you’re better off with the Fusion Hybrid.
