US News reports the Ford Fusion Hybrid to be one of the top affordable mid-sized cars. This quiet car gets 47 miles to the gallon on both city and highway, making it both eco-friendly and easy on the wallet at the gas pump. Reviewers say it feels upscale, and the interior comes equipped with lots of space, bluetooth, voice commands, and multiple ways to play music.

2. F-150

The F-150 has been one of the top pickup trucks for years, and Ford delivers year after year on this quality model. The F-150 has multiple configurations, meaning you can buy the version of this full-size pickup that best fits your needs, whether that be an extra-large cab or something great for off roading. Four engines give the F-150 a considerable amount of power, and four-wheel drive is available on all models.

3. Fiesta

This compact model comes in sedan and hatchback, and it has an interior that Car and Driver says mimics the appearance of a much more expensive car. You have the choice between three- and four-cylinder engines based on model, and the gas mileage is as good as some hybrid cars at 31 mpg city and 43 mpg highway.

4. Mustang

A perpetually popular choice as far as sports cars and convertibles go, the Mustang is nothing short of fun to drive. Plus, it has the added bonus of being much more wallet-friendly than most other high-end sports cars people tend to salivate over. With 420 horsepower and a V8 engine, this car burns rubber like nobody’s business. Rev the engine and enjoy the way the heavier build doesn’t bump and jostle you along every little road imperfection like smaller sports cars will.

5. C-Max Hybrid

The Ford C-Max Hybrid gets high safety ratings, coming in at a 9.0 on the US News’s ranking system. It also has a lot of passenger space, and can go 85 miles per hour without dipping into the gas tank. It gets 42 mpg city, and 37 highway.

6. Flex

At first glance, the Ford Flex might look a little odd sitting next to other SUVs, but this unique vehicle stands out from the crowd in more ways than just its appearance. The Flex is great for families and people with lots of stuff to haul. It seats seven, and can pack a considerable amount of stuff inside. Multiple models and accessory packages can make the price vary by almost $20,000, so its affordability is largely determined by the features you choose.

Whatever you’re looking for in a vehicle, there’s a Ford model with those qualities in spades. Be it safety, power, fuel efficiency, or overall experience, you can’t do better than checking out these great models.
