2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid – Best Cars for Families

Great news out of the US News and World Report! In their annual ranking of “Best Cars for Families”, the 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid was named “Best Hybrid Car for Families“!

Anyone who has driven a Fusion Hybrid could probably have guessed this though – like with the rest of the Ford lineup, the Fusion Hybrid offers something for everyone. It’s got a spacious interior – perfect for hauling kids around. Its got a pretty sizeable trunk, especially compared to other mid-size sedans. It’s got plenty of advanced driver-assist and infotainment technology options like SYNC with MyFord Touch. It’s got an efficient hybrid powertrain that delivers all the power you need when you need it, without sacrificing fuel economy when you don’t (great for commuting to work, especially if your commute is a mix of city and highway driving).

And at the end of the day, its just fun to drive. You don’t have to sacrifice the ‘fun’ factor just because you want to buy a hybrid.

The “Best Cars for Families” award highlights cars, SUVs, and minivans that are the best fit for families. Award winners must have the best combination of high safety and reliability ratings, excellent reviews from automotive critics, and space and features that matter most to families.
