Thanks for your detailed impressions, Zon. Keep us updated as you log more miles.
I am counting the weeks until my AH3 Sport arrives (late February I'm told). My wife has had both a 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid and now a 2013 Ford C-Max Hybrid that I have logged a lot of miles on. Both vehicles are good hybrid integrations versus other brands I have had the opportunity to drive, so I will have a comparison base for gas/electric transitions and other hybrid features. I ordered an AH3 because I wanted the best of both the performance and hybrid worlds with all the best bells and whistles (HUD, advanced Nav, sport seats, i-Drive, HK, etc.).
