What a blessing it was getting the chance to test drive the 2017 FORD FUSIONTITANIUM AWD my milestone birthday weekend! Celebrating in-style meant having a chariot with equal parts substance and glamour. This ride was everything I could’ve asked for – cutting-edge innovation meets practicality! Coloured a gorgeous burgundy velvet metallic, the Fusion elicited wows from friends and family, striking a chord with its visual elegance. They were treated to spacious heated (and cooled) leather seating as we navigated north and west of the City for celebrations and passengers in the roomy back loved having their own vents.
Driving was truly a comfort with its adjustable seats. Although the Fusion’s rotary shift dial was a bit daunting at first, after having grown accustomed to an actual stick gear shift for years, I got the handle of it rather quickly. I absolutely loved its remote keyless ignition, ensuring a warm car (believe me, it was needed and will be needed this grueling winter ahead!) before I even got in.
I confess, the driver’s seat was so cozy, reclining almost all the way back, that I even took a quick nap under that ambient moonroof for a quick recharge. Never be afraid to celebrate too hard! To enjoy a sunset in this stunner of a vehicle is a luxury that could be experienced on the daily!
We don’t remember driving before SIRIUS XM and this is a fact. We adore that the 12-speaker SONY® sound system-enhanced Fusion comes SIRIUS-ready, Spotify-enabled, with multiple USB ports for charging. Its SYNC® 3 system works together with the Bluetooth on your wireless device to help you enjoy our music no-fuss and stay connected at all times. Did we mention it has voice recognition too? We think it’s positively awesome too being able to get an audio transcription of your text messages so one can keep their focus on the road. We love also that the car is not only Apple but Android friendly! Yes!
The Fusion comes with decent fuel efficiency at 13.5 L/100km city, 9.0 L/100km hwy, 11.5 L/100km combined.
Power-wise, the intelligent all-wheel-drive option is smooth like butter with its 2.0-litre EcoBoost® engine.
For those who need to go downtown frequently, the Fusion makes parallel and regular parking even, a breeze with park assist and park-out assist for those tight spots. Its rear camera ensures your safety, very aware of pedestrians, vehicles and obstacles. Our one wish? We wish it had rear-window wipers!
