Each year U.S. News & World Report awards new models, within 19 categories, for being the best for families.
This year Ford has their models earning top spots. The Ford Fusion won for best midsize car and the Fusion Hybrid won for best hybrid car. This would be the second year in a row for the Fusion Hybrid and third in a row for the Fusion.
U.S. News & World Report determines the winning vehicles based on the best combination of quality, features, and space for families.
The Fusion and Fusion Hybrid are no strangers to awards and recognition. MSN Autos included the Hybrid in their list of cars that reach at least a combined 35 MPG (the Hybrid gets 47 mpg). And the Ford Fusion was named the family vehicle of the year by the Midwest Automotive Media Association.
