Fusion Sport styling is lacking?

I'm starting to think Ford could have done more to make the Fusion Sport stand out, something as simple as sportier wheels and a lip kit would go a long way.

Is what they did enough for you, or do you want more?

I think the upper grille could be a bit bigger to make it look more aggressive because that seems to be the new design theme with new models and I like that. Sute it's a bit more vanilla than others but it's what's under the hood that counts more for me.

Yeah. As I mentioned in another thread, there are so many Fusions on the road already that this Sport trim will just get lost in this herd of sheep.

Fusion Sport looks pretty good, IMO, but it just does not stand out. Then again, some companies make their vehicles stand out by making them butt ugly, so maybe Ford just did not want to mess with what works....

I agree with @Fallout4 about the larger grille like the Focus RS (size wise):



Other than that, the interior looks fine to me. I wouldn't change that.

Personally, I'm not a fan of this Focus RS grille. Looks like another angry insect or a fish.

and I wish Ford would stop with all these Aston Martin grilles already.

I'm a fan of "sleepers." It is easily recognizable from the front (grille), sides (wheels), and rear (exhaust) -- if you know what you're looking for. It passes mostly unnoticed by those who wouldn't appreciate it, anyway.

Me personally, I'll probably be going the splitter route.. Try to make an intimidator version out of it

I agree with the fact that it's pretty bland but as mentioned above, some like the sleeper effect. Personally I like that I have a 'blank canvas' to work with... I have modified some 'left of center' cars before and enjoyed not looking like every other car on the road. I think some subtle tweaks could make this car stand out just enough...

Me too. If I need to attract attention from cops, that is easy enough, just drive this around 1 MPH over the speed limit.

It's the ultimate sleeper. You'd have no idea just tooling around. I would like a little bit lower front fascia but overall I think it's excellent.
