Ford Fusion Safety

The 2019 Ford Fusion is a car that has something for everyone. It is available with a choice of 6 engines out of which, two come with an all-wheel drive, two are hybrids and one comes with a horsepower of 325. The model is also available in 5 trim levels which goes all the way from bare bones to near luxury. 

With dozens of permutations available to the customer, the car truly gives a great feel while driving. The models are exceptionally good looking, although the hybrid engines are really not up to the mark. For the year 2019, slight design changes have been introduced to the aesthetics of the vehicle. These changes are so small that they might not even be noticeable at a casual glance, but if you take a closer look, the changes do add aesthetic value. Apart from this the model has also been equipped with a standard package of driver assistance features known as the Ford Co-Pilot360. Ford Fusion has been awarded the highest possible score in safety, “five stars”, by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This safety rating takes into account vehicle safety performance in both frontal and side impact crash tests It has also been selected as the top safety pick by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. This combined with its EPA fuel economy makes Ford Fusion one of the safest cars.
