ALEXANDRIA, Ky., March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The Ford Fusion has been an incredibly popular car since it hit the streets a few years ago. It is also a bit of an outlier because of an interesting design choice by Ford Motor Company. In an age where many cars are shrinking slightly to help save of fuel costs, the 2013 Ford Fusion grew a little and either retains similar fuel-economy or increases it with the help of some other technologies. The end result is one of the increased passenger comforts, especially for those sitting in the back seat. In pitting the 2013 Ford Fusion vs. the 2013 Chevy Malibu, this will become crucial in the later rounds.
Having a wide range of engine options is quickly becoming a calling card for all Ford vehicles. The 2013 Ford Fusion near Cincinnati is no different. The base trim model comes with a standard 175-horsepower, 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that is mated with a six-speed automatic transmission. Other engine options for the higher trim models include a turbocharged 1.6-liter, four-cylinder with an automatic start/stop system (similar to that in a hybrid car) and a much more powerful turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that can turn out 240-hp. The 2013 Chevy Malibu does come with larger engines but at the cost of fuel-economy.
Both vehicles have been highly praised by independent sources as having very high quality cabins made up of high quality materials and enough creature comforts to make longer road trips more tolerable for everyone involved. The exterior of the Cincinnati 2013 Ford Fusion may give the impression that taller adults sitting in the backseat would feel a bit cramped back there, but this is false. The same cannot be said for the new Chevy Malibu. The Malibu is one of the cars that were alluded to earlier that has been trimmed down an inch here and there and those who didn't call "shotgun" may be a bit pinched.
Also setting the Fusion apart from the Malibu is the innovative Ford MyKey system that allows a car owner or parent of a new driver to set up parameters such as maximum speed and audio system volume to make sure the driver is paying as much attention to the road as possible.
