Aravind Jayachandran,

It goes without saying that I’m a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Gets updated styling and new interior features.

Ford has teased the facelifted 2017 Ford Fusion (Ford Mondeo) and revealed that it will debut at the 2016 Detroit Motor Show (NAIAS 2016) that starts on January 11. The car seen in the teaser image is the 2017 Ford Fusion Energi plug-in hybrid.

Although the model is covered up, a leaked image has revealed that it will feature an edgier grille, slimmer LED headlights and a re-profiled front bumper. The side profile remains identical, while the rear end could feature updated taillamps and rear bumper.

The interior has been caught earlier with the same dashboard layout, although it appears that the gear stick will be replaced with a rotary dial unit. New seat fabric and interior trims are expected, with the infotainment system getting upgraded to the latest Ford SYNC 3 edition.
