The new generation of the Ford Fusion has recently won the IIHS’s Top Safety Pick, but has not been rated yet under the five-star crash test program of the federal government.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has recently announced that the 2013 Ford Fusion has earned the Top Safety Pick and the model is apparently rated good in the Institute’s moderate overlap frontal, side, rear and rollover evaluations. The model’s top rivals, the 2013 Nissan Altima or the 2013 Honda Accord, haven’t been rated by the IIHS yet, so the new Fusion will join a list of several 2013 midsize sedans, like the Malibu, the Verano, Sonata, Optima, Legacy, Outback, C30 or Jetta.
The new generation of the Ford Fusion can be bought in the United States from 21,700 USD, shipping included, for the S entry-level version, while the EcoBoost Titanium will set you back for 29,995 USD. Ford says that all versions of the Fusion will get front-wheel drive as standard, while the 2.0 EcoBoost can be ordered with an optional all-wheel drive system for an extra 2,000 USD. The Hybrid will go on sale this year from 27,495 USD.
