Midsize sedans like the Ford Fusion are a popular option for commuters, providing a fuel-efficient ride that focuses on comfort and performance.

While the Ford Fusion already offers a respectable gas mileage, you can increase its efficiency and eco-friendly rating by utilizing its Auto Start-Stop option. At any time that the vehicle is idling, whether at a stop light or waiting in traffic, the engine will shut itself off, waiting to instantly spring back to life the moment you press the accelerator. Interior functions continue as normal; the radio will still play and the heater or air conditioner will continue to run, so you're not sacrificing your comfort while you reduce your fuel consumption. There's also an all-wheel-drive system that constantly monitors things like road surface and speed so it can deliver a smooth ride with minute and instantaneous adjustments.

You can test drive a Ford Fusion at Scott Peterson Motors of Sturgis LLC in Sturgis, SD.
