Chrysler has been pretty successful with its Bentley-inspired 300.

Many are expecting a similar reception for Ford’s Aston-like 2013 Fusion. The poor man’s ultra-luxury ride should now be even a stronger contender for top mid-size sedan going into the future.

The 240-hp Titanium version of the car offers paddle shifters and has a claimed 0-60 of 6.9 seconds. Looks like after two decades of dominance, the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry just may continue to slip.

Experts are calling Ford’s new Fusion rollout “a bid to win, rather than just show up.”

More from Motoramic here:

“Based on a new platform Ford will build worldwide, the 2013 Ford Fusion rides on front McPherson-strut and rear multi-link suspensions. Compared to the outgoing model, the new Fusion’s rear multi-link has been revised to improve ride quality, while keeping the car’s overall European-inspired handling characteristics. Much of that on-road responsiveness is thanks to Ford’s electric power-assisted steering, one of the best in the industry, providing a confident weighting and progressive effort while dampening the excessive feedback from tortured roads.”

If you have a new car with all the latest high-tech innovations then you have less to fear about car theft!

No promises, of course. But after seeing the Top 10 list of most-stolen vehicles filled with sedans and American pickups it seems the thieves are giving up their computer-hacking days and going after the older cars with no chance of computer chips to track them down.

And that’s … a pretty smart move.

Although the thieves are stealing older versions of the newer cars, that doesn’t mean they don’t get caught because of the newer tech. It is now more common than ever for people to track down their stolen cars because they left their iPhone in their car and it has a “Find my Phone” app.

Although that can work as a freak-accident safety for your car — would you really want to take that risk??

The top 5 most-stolen vehicles are:

5. 2000 Dodge Caravan
4. 1991 Toyota Camry
3. 2006 Ford F-150
2. 1998 Honda Civic

And, drum roll, please! The top stolen vehicle is the…

1. The 1994 Honda Accord!!

If you have any of those cars, either cross your fingers it doesn’t get stolen, or get yourself an alarm system. Preferably one of the Viper systems, just to be on the safe side.

Check out the rest of the top 10 most-stolen vehicles and make sure yours isn’t on this list from Yahoo/Motoramic:

Did you know that every 40 seconds a car is stolen in the U.S., according to FBI statistics? Well if you didn’t, I’m sure you’re glad you have a Viper security system now.

(And if you don’t, shame on you!!!!)

Sadly for many car owners, thieves seem to have a taste for luxury. With the top three cars on the most stolen luxury cars list being: The Chrysler 300 in third — of 31,287 made 143 were stolen in 2009 — and in second place, the BMW M5 — with two stolen out of 264 units created in 2009. Topping the list in the No. 1 spot is the Audi S8: With only 227 produced, 2 were stolen, making the theft rate 8.81 per one thousand units manufactured, according to the most recent FBI data.

I’m sure many of you are considering downsizing to that modest, mid-sized Toyota Camry, but unfortunately that won’t do you any good either. As most Viper fans no doubt know, the Camry takes the cake for the most stolen car in America.

No matter how you slice it, whether you drive the nicest car on the block, or the most reliable, you will want the assurance that no one will dare to come close.

You want to know who else made the “Luxury Car Top 10,” don’t you?

Well, rounding out the list are:

4. Nissan Infiniti M35/M45

5. General Motors Cadillac STS

6. Mercedes-Benz CL-Class

7. Chrysler Sebring Convertible

8. Chrysler Sebring

9. Audi A8

10. Volvo V70
