2019 Impressions

I traded in my '17 Sport this week for a '19. I figured I better get one before all that's left is black, white and gray for a color choice. I found a Blue Metallic 50 miles from me and my local dealer traded for it. They told me it was in the showroom when it was picked up. Cool, never bought a car off the showroom floor before.
Some observations:
- It's got a sharkfin antenna. Didn't know they changed that.
- The shape of the trunk lid has changed a little. I think I liked the old a little better but it's not a biggie.
- The brake pedal seems to have less travel than the '17 did even when it was new. I remember that was something that was complained about in the early reviews of the '17.
- It's got Goodyear tires on it. I was hoping for Conti's as I only got 30k out of the Goodyears on my '17. I've also noticed that the Goodyears heat up and gain more pressure than the Yokohamas that where on my '17 when I traded it.
- It still has a spare tire. I was worried that it might have been decontented out.
- The trunk pull is gone and I really miss it. I've found an easy aftermarket replacement and I'll post about it when I get it.
- The black plastic on the center console now has a metallic sparkle in it

All in all, I'm happy with it. I just hope it doesn't have the teething problems that my '17 had.

Very cool man. Normally I'd say ah man why trade a 17 in for a 19. But in this case... the 19 is the last time the fusion sport will be made. Zero wrong with trading up to the latest year of the last of the lineage. I've had a lot of people comment on the rear valence also compared to the 17, as well as the rear end not having the big chrome strip across the whole back. I think the 17-19 also had this but the sport only pedals were a nice touch imo same with the sport labeled floor mats

Al from Iowa, with that Blue Metallic you've got a great color. And, I'd buy mine all over again too, I still look for excuses to drive mine.

Congratulations!

Interior is black instead of grey, correct?

Would love black interior! Also as I recall the rear diffuser looks better also.

Yes mine in black leather/suede with different rear end. I actually like the straight chrome line on the older ones, seems like it would look better blacked out.

It's kind of hard to get correct color shooting into a black car in the sun.

Shameless plug of my carbon fiber vinyl over the interior grey. Still liking the carbon wrapped door handle but I might remove that just so the black carbon fiber blends in more. Just was not a fan at all of the grey carbon trim

Another observation: the heated steering wheel gets a lot hotter!
