KBB Picks Best Redesigned Vehicle for 2013

PR newswire - December 13, 2012

The expert edi­tors of Kel­ley Blue Book’s KBB.com con­sid­ered more than 20 vehi­cles that were redesigned for the 2013 mod­el year before mak­ing their choice.

Can you guess which pop­u­lar mod­el came out on top?

“More than a hand­ful of vehi­cles made the short list of final­ists for this year, but ulti­mate­ly the 2013 Ford Fusion was named KBB.com’s 2013 Best Redesigned Vehi­cle with impres­sive gains in design, tech­nol­o­gy and fuel econ­o­my,” said Jack R. Ner­ad, exec­u­tive edi­to­r­i­al direc­tor and exec­u­tive mar­ket ana­lyst for Kel­ley Blue Book.  “Out­side, the new Fusion is clear­ly the hottest-look­ing car in a class with no few­er than 13 oth­er entrants.  The inte­ri­or is just as strik­ing, and a vari­ety of tech­no­log­i­cal enhance­ments and choice of five pow­er­trains is just icing on the cake.  What­ev­er mix of val­ue, pow­er and fuel effi­cien­cy you’re look­ing for in a mid-size sedan, the new Fusion has it.”

In judg­ing, the KBB.com edi­tors con­sid­er exte­ri­or and inte­ri­or styling, tech­nol­o­gy, com­fort and con­ve­nience fea­tures, performance/capability, dri­ving dynam­ics, safe­ty, fuel econ­o­my, over­all refine­ment and, of course, val­ue.
