2010 Ford Fusion Overview

The Ford Fusion saw a number of updates for 2010, and auto critics were impressed. Motor Trend named it the 2010 Car of the Year, and numerous test drivers agreed that the Fusion was a solid choice within the segment. When it was new, they liked the upscale materials, big trunk, comfortable and roomy seats and available Sync infotainment system. They also praised the Fusion’s athletic handling and strong available V6 engine. On the downside, some reviewers said the electric power steering on lower trim levels was numb, and that the brakes had a mushy feel that they didn’t like.  

The 2010 Ford Fusion is available with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, a 3.0-liter V6 or a 3.5-liter V6 engine. A six-speed manual was standard and a six-speed automatic was available. The base four-cylinder Fusion gets up to 22/31 mpg city/highway, which is about average for the class. Standard features include cruise control and a four-speaker stereo with auxiliary input. The Fusion’s standard safety features include six airbags, anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control. The 2010 Fusion offers some available safety features that were impressive for the class in 2010, including a blind spot monitoring system. You’ll find all-wheel drive on SEL and Sport models with a V6 engine.

Other Cars to Consider

If safety, practicality and interior quality are must-haves, the 2010 Honda Accord sedan should be on your short list. The Accord sedan has some of the best safety ratings in its class. Test drivers liked the Accord’s smooth ride and potent V6 engine when it was new, but they preferred the Fusion’s sporty handling. The Accord also received high marks for its upscale, roomy cabin. A 2010 Accord coupe is also available if you prefer two doors, though no Accord model offers all-wheel drive.

The 2010 Mazda6 is similar to the 2010 Fusion in that it also has sporty handling, a large interior and huge trunk. Unlike the Fusion, the Mazda6 does not offer all-wheel drive on any trim level.
