Ford Fusion SE
Ford Fusion SE
  • Price: $24,625
  • Gas mileage:
    • City - 24 mpg
    • Highway - 37 mpg
    • Combined - 28 mpg

Ford completely redesigned Fusion for 2013, giving it bolder lines and a dynamic front end. The end result is a sporty appearance and a car that looks more expensive than its midsize family sedan price tag. In its SE trim, as priced here, it's loaded with the most popular convenience features. Ford also offers a number of options that could make driving easier for senior citizens, such as blind-spot warning, backup cross-traffic alert and adaptive cruise control.

Bankrate chose to outfit and price the Fusion with the peppy 178-horsepower 1.6-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost engine and six-speed, driver-shiftable automatic transmission. It delivers the best mileage on our list. Getting good fuel economy has never been more fun.

Consumer Reports rated the Fusion "very good" in front-seat comfort, ride and cabin quiet.
