The 2013 Ford Fusion mid-sized sedan won praise for its handling and sportiness from Consumer Reports, but the magazine's automotive experts faulted the car for poor fit and finish and fuel economy that falls well short of claims on the window sticker.
The magazine said today that other prominent gripes -- namely the MyFord Touch infotainment and controls system -- also kept the new Fusion out of the top of its mid-sized sedan ratings.
Consumer Reports said it bought and tested three versions of the Fusion: an SE model with a 1.6-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, an SE Hybrid and a high-end Titanium model with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine.
The top-scoring mid-sized sedans in the magazine's road tests are now the Honda Accord, Hyundai Sonata, Toyota Camry, Chevrolet Malibu, Fusion, Kia Optima, Nissan Altima and Subaru Legacy.
All but the Malibu and Fusion are recommended by the magazine.
