MAGIC, Ford’s free information service for disabled and mature drivers today announces the launch of the all-new Ford Fusion on to the Motability Scheme.
Based on the all-new Fiesta, Fusion is aimed at modern urban families. Taller, wider and longer than the Fiesta, the Fusion's higher driving position enables greater all round visibility in busy traffic. Deep windows and expansive front and rear windscreens also improve visibility.
Fusion also offers more head, leg and shoulder room than the Fiesta, as well as handily located storage bins and compartments. Rear seats have a simple 60-40 split-and-fold facility to swallow bulky objects up to 2.3 metres in length.
Access is made easier by wide-opening doors and a deep, wide boot helps in the loading and removal of large objects, such as wheelchairs, making it perfect for Motability drivers.
"Our philosophy was to create a design for a new compact vehicle – with a small-car footprint – but taller and tougher then traditional small cars," explains Peter Fleet, marketing director, Ford Motor Company Limited. "These features, coupled with Fusion's practical interior, make it ideal for the cut-and-thrust of modern urban life."
On-the-road prices for the full new Ford Fusion range on the Motability Contract Hire Scheme are as follows:
|Model||Adv payment (�)*||Weekly rental (�)*|
|Fusion1||5 Door 1.4i||350||Total allowance|
