In the past two years, the Ford Fusion model had a lot of success in sales, and all three variants (Sedan, Hybrid, and Plug-in Hybrid) have proved to be really good. Today, we will talk about the Plug-in Hybrid Energi variant, and here you can find out something more about this very popular model. Perhaps the reason for the great popularity of this model is a lot of good features in the offer, elegant appearance or maybe easy and safety handling? We think that the reason is all of that together. The next model will be even better than the current one and Ford expects even more sales than before. Plugin options will provide us the best fuel economy so far, and that is probably the best news related to the 2017 Ford Fusion Energi.

The exterior design of the 2017 Ford Fusion Energi will be very nice and we can expect some small modifications from the outside. The front side of this model will be probably the best part when it comes to design. Here we can notice good looking front grille. This grille will be wider than before and will have well-known Aston Martin look. The headlights of the 2017 Ford Fusion Energi will also receive some minor modifications while the system that powers it will remain the same (LED technology).
At the back, we can notice a redesigned taillight but with the same system as before. At the sides, the newly model will be equipped with a large 17 X 7.5-inch aluminum wheels fitted with P225/50VR17 tires for all season. In order to improve engine performance and cooling, the most recent model will use modified air vent that will be integrated into the restyled front bumper. Also, here we can notice small but very strong and useful fog lights.
From the inside, the most recent 2017 Ford Fusion Energi looks so nice and elegant, and the cabin will provide a high dose of luxury. All seats in the cabin will be wrapped in the high-quality leather. Also, all seats are well shaped and very adjustable. We can expect to see capacitive touch-sensitive buttons.
