There are always a lot of factors to consider when buying a car, factors like comfort, drive experience, budget, and much more. But for most drivers, there’s another factor that’s can be difficult to determine – whether they are getting the best vehicle for their money. Luckily, U.S. News and World Report understands how important it is for consumers to feel like what they are getting in their vehicle is worth the money they paid. So every year, they produce a list of the best models for drivers’ money, across a variety of categories. They understand that what a vehicle is really worth is based on the real quality, operating costs, and comfort, not just the bells and whistles of fancy add-ons and exteriors.

In the 2016 list, the editors at U.S. News and World Report looked at models that had long-term value for drivers as well as a great ownership experience, and determined the Best Cars for the Money. And this year, the 2016 Ford Fusion took the top spot amongst hybrid cars! Here at your local Ford dealership, we know there’s a lot of reasons the 2016 Ford Fusion deserves this award.
