Road Test: 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid "The New Sleek Sipper"


IMG_5999.jpg

One of the biggest buzz vehicles for the 2013 model year is the all new 2013 Fusion Hybrid from Ford. The original Fusion and its Hybrid variant gave the Ford brand some credibility in the mid-size vehicle market and this new vehicle aims to shoot it to the top. The new Fusion comes at the peak of the popularity of the hybrid or alternative energy vehicles as the ever-increasing battle to beat $4/gallon gas prices wages on. As we hopped behind the wheel and took a drive through the California town of Signal Hill we were surrounded by numerous oil pumps, sucking the ground to feed the appetite of the gas starved LA area , and we wondered if we were sitting within their next big nemesis.

A walk around the new Fusion will give you a good glimpse at the direction the styling department of the Blue Oval brand is heading as the old three bar grill and plain lines are replaced with a almost Aston-esque outline.  The car is quite the head turner and even in luxury car-laden California we received a fair bit of stolen glances and giant grins from other drivers at stop lights. The trend in the past was to make the hybrid variation of a normal car stand out frm the crowd with large green hybrid badges or sometimes even large "HYBRID" lettering; the new Fusion doesn't resort to these obnoxious games. A quick glance around the outside of the car and you will find two hybrid badges on the front doors and then a small badge on the truck to show that this Fusion has something electric hiding underneath...

2011 Chevrolet Tahoe Review

2011 Chevrolet Tahoe

2011 Chevrolet Tahoe
Roomy, strong and refined.

By New Car Test Drive

Overview

The Chevrolet Tahoe offers good towing capabilities and can haul up to nine passengers or two passengers and a mountain of cargo or anything in between.

Inside, the first two rows offer legroom and head room comparable to most sedans but more shoulder and hip room because of Tahoe's six-and-a-half foot width. Fold the second row of seats and remove the third row and the Tahoe offers nearly 109 cubic feet of cargo space.

2011 Honda Civic Review

2011 Honda Civic
Benchmark compact offers something for everyone.

By New Car Test Drive


Overview

The Honda Civic is a benchmark in the compact class, noted for its reliability. A wide range of models is available. They're easy to drive, with ample windows that provide outstanding outward visibility.

We found ride quality in the Civic solid but not overly firm, with less road noise and wind whistle than is common for the class. The stiff chassis gives the Civic a solid and planted feel, with impressive stability and responsive steering, while the relatively long wheelbase smoothes the ride. Inside, the Civic is pleasant, attractive and inviting. Bluetooth and navigation are available.

2010 Fisker Karma Hybrid Review: Engine, Performance, and Pricing

The gorgeous 2010 Fisker Karma sports sedan promises so much that some auto-industry watchers fear it's almost too good to be true. The verdict should come with the Karma's scheduled production debut in late 2009.

Fisker Automotive calls the Karma an eco-friendly car without compromise in performance, style or design. It's a large, four-passenger plug-in hybrid sedan that drips luxury and sex appeal.
