Miami Embraces Detroit as Fusion Leaps With Coastal Surge

In style-savvy Miami, Detroit cars used to be a hard sell. Not anymore, says Ford dealer Victor Benitez, who is having a hard time keeping up with demand for the Fusion sedan.

“We are in a very hip market where people want to be driving the latest and the best,” said Benitez, who has seen sales more than double at his two Miami-area Ford stores this year. “The Fusion not only performs well, but it looks good. We’re trading people from Toyotas and Hondas.”
