TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Ford Fusion Hybrid scores with its deft hybrid integration, and for preserving so much of the Fusion's basic goodness. After more than a decade on the market, the latest Hyundai Sonata's an overnight success--thanks to great gas mileage, grabby styling, and exceptional value for the dollar.
