#PRODUCTWATCH: 2014 FORD FUSION HYBRID SE
It certainly was love at first drive with the 2014 FORD FUSION HYBRID SE! This past week I had the utmost pleasure of experiencing this wonderful environmentally/fuel-efficient vehicle in a stunning Deep Impact Blue. Not only did I get-by on just $35 of gas in eight days – barely using half a tank of gas – the Car pretty much saved my life!
Wongsters know well that I’m pretty much everywhere and after a long, grueling day in the heat Sunday while driving home along the 401, I must say that I was feeling rather fatigued. Noticing slight changes in my driving behaviour, I saw an alert on my Dashboard suggesting I take a rest, with a Coffee Cup icon popping-up. I took its advice right away and stopped-off at a Starbucks for a quick break before continuing the rest of my drive, making it home safe and sound, cool and air-conditioned. Sometimes we just need to be told!
Smooth acceleration also is a highlight of this easy-to-navigate offering from Ford, the Automaker which undoubtedly has stepped-up its game in recent years with choices comparable to many other luxury manufacturers in the marketplace.
The Ford Fusion Hybrid SE was super-aware of my safety and in addition to a rear-view camera handy for reversing, frequent alerts told me when either people, obstacles or automobiles were in the vicinity. It basically was super-conscious of my well-being and I appreciate that!
One of my favourite features on the Dashboard were the Efficiency Leaves. The game-like interaction of this feature keeps track of my progress as an efficient Driver with more leaves blooming on the display as time passes rewarding me for maximizing mileage and saving fuel!
Do I need to go into my addiction to SIRIUS XM which had me sitting in my car for prolonged periods just to hear what songs would play next? The leather seats were so comfortable that my Shih Tzu, Billy, made himself right at home, plopping himself in the Passenger’s Seat when normally he’s rather anxious and shifty in cars!
I absolutely loved the FORD FUSION and would consider this near the top of the pack of Cars to buy!
