“The Fusion Plus expands our small car line-up further
to meet European customer needs and is another example of our
commitment to extend our core products with great derivatives.
Fusion Plus fits well into this philosophy by building on the
strengths of the standard Fusion – commanding driving
position, imposing road presence, interior space and flexibility.
It combines a tougher, more contemporary exterior treatment
with enhanced rear seat flexibility and premium entertainment
options that pamper the rear seat occupants.”
Derrick Kuzak - Vice President, Product Development
Ford of Europe
