How About The Cabin?
Like the Fusion's derriere, the interior redesign is evolutionary, not revolutionary. The general shape and arrangement of the dash is very familiar, though we're glad to see some softer materials used throughout. Controls on the center stack - which can now house Ford's premium eight-inch navigation system - are now arranged similar to those on the current Focus, though they seem to have a slightly better tactile feel.
When will we see this in showrooms?
The folks at Ford seem quite proud of their work, but it'll take some time before the new Fusion arrives at a dealer near you. We expect early builds to roll down the assembly line in Hermilsalo, Mexico, early next year and arrive in showrooms by the spring of 2009.
