The Sketch:

The Reality:


I'm impressed. Technically there are only four differences between the concept sketch and the real car.
They are:
1. Support pillar in rear window.
2. Wheel design. (Wheels in sketch are 16 in design used on SE models)
3. Tailights in sketch don't show chrome accents.
4. Turn signal repeaters on side.

I fell for the Fusion (then Futura) when I saw the sketch, and I'm glad to see the stance, proportions, and graphics (designer-speak for trim and sheetmetal treatments) came through so well. And the few changes actually enhance the design instead of watering it down. If only all concept cars and drawings (including some of Ford's) could translate to production so well.

P.S. Dark blue is the ONLY Fusion color as far as I'm concerned.

I've seen a Black one in person. It was an S or SE without the chrome side trim. The problem with that is you can barely make out the window lines and the chrome grille REAALLY stands out.

Sorry Donald T, Ford's green on the Fusion is weak, lame. The shiny black ones look best. I'm so lazy these days I knew I couldn't do the black justice, so we bought an Oxford white one like Chris06Fusion. Boz
