2. 2014 Ford Fusion
Starting price: $21,970
It's as if it just dawned on Ford that making the Fusion look even remotely like a sports car could do wonders for its sales. That sleek new body and tough-looking grille caught a lot of eyes over the last year, but the additions inside are the ones making buyers even happier.
With a sporty new exterior, keyless entry keypad, its own app, Microsoft's SYNC entertainment and communications system (that also doubles as a Wi-Fi hotspot) a blind-spot alert system, adaptive cruise control and Hill Start Assist that holds the brake when starting on an incline, there are a ton of extraordinary features in what's supposed to be Ford's most ordinary car.Its combined 28 miles per gallon and capless fuel tank are also lovely, but its availability as both a 47-miles-per-gallon hybrid and as a plug-in electric vehicle is worth noting.
