Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 36 - 64 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Ford Fusion running costs don’t pose a huge problem. The brick-like aerodynamics mean the Fusion isn’t as fuel efficient as the Fiesta, but costs are still reasonable. Ford parts and servicing costs are fairly low, while insurance groups are low. High spec Fusions are over laden with technical wizardry, and are overly priced accordingly: a lot of the gadgets are simply a pleasantry and not a necessity.

The Ford Fusion emissions make acceptable reading. It performs well on the eco front and the greenest model is the 1.4 TDCI which emits 122g/km of CO2 and is capable of 61mpg.

The Ford Fusion reliability record should equal the Fiesta’s, with just occasional warranty niggles. There are reports of the occasional dash or door rattle, but any problems shouldn’t be too severe.
