Inside, a mixture of high-quality trims add a touch of class in amongst the sporty upgrade. A charcoal black interior trim is added with red stitching also on the steering wheel and central console. For those opting for leather trim in charcoal black, red-splashed cloth inserts and inlays are added. A brushed aluminium finish adorns the radio and its controls.
Uprated sport-tuned suspension with stiffer springs and dampened struts and shocks add to the improved ride and handling perfornance, while the Fusion continues to offer the class-exclusive all-wheel-drive system, having won the Fusion the top title in independent magazine tests assessing handling, performance and styling over its class rivals.

And as such, dealers are already saying that this Fusion will be their model of choice for showroom Fusions - "delivering on everything that a Fusion is."
