Ford’s recent car lineup is probably the best example of what can happen when a car manufacturer decides to compete in probably every possible segment. You get some mediocre vehicles and some that are good, and most of them falling somewhere in between. In some cases, they are even competing against each other. The consumers get a variety of choices, which is good, but it can also take more effort to figure out which model is the right one. You probably have heard the news that ford will start decreasing the variety of cars in their product line in the coming years, throwing out unprofitable small cars and low-selling sedans which means that there is no better time to get yourself a new car. Keep reading if you want to find out which cars of Ford’s lineup are in the top five.
1. Ford Fiesta 2016
The Fiesta may not be the best subcompact car on the market right now, but it is probably the most fun one. This Ford is also available as a hatchback and as a sedan, although their top-tier ST comes only as a hatchback. You can order the Fiesta with performance or efficiency in mind, though in either case, you will get tight steering and agile handling. The main drawbacks of a Fiesta are the small cargo area and tight rear row, which are bad even by the relaxed standards for space in this class. The base Fiesta is inadequately equipped, but the extra to upgrade the safety features and the tech is pretty low.
2. Ford Fusion 2013
Despite the great competition in midsize car rankings, the gas-powered and mainstream version of the Ford Fusion does pretty well in this class. The Fusion has an attractive design that holds out even today, strong performance and a functional and comfortable cabin. Buyers even get the choice of four powertrains, which is rare for this class. All-wheel drive is also another upgrade option that is worth to consider. The Fusion has plenty of space in both rows and has a pretty big trunk.
