The headlights and the added LED elements are going to be similar to the offered trim levels that get to be offered, but Ford made sure that each car has a standalone distinction to its headlights design. What makes the car different from each other are the small styling in the design which are the most apparent in the Fusion V6 Sport trim. This version will add unique 19-inch wheels, a rear spoiler and black mesh grille  to the front side which other Fusion vehicles do not have. Other trims with a unique grille type is the Platinum version as well.

Interior update

The interior of the 2017 Ford Fusion is going to be kept similar to the one from before. The car is going to continue using the reconfigurable digital dash and is going to combine it with a thick and sporty steering wheel. The new addition is the rotary shift dial which is going to be placed on the console and is going to reduce the cluttering on the dash that way, at least visually speaking. There is also the large Smartphone-style touchscreen which you can use to control the SYNC system. Using the SYNC system you can connect via your Smartphone so you can remote control the start options for the car.

The car also uses the reconfigured console which adds a lot of storage space which you can use to put away your things and devises. Inside the hybrid Fusion models there is a Ford’s EcoGuide which is used for tutoring on how to hypermile.
