The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid and Fusion Energi are strong contenders that compete well against the Toyota Camry and Hyundai Sonata Hybrids--and are selling well. The 2014 Kia Optima is a sensible and spacious four-door sedan, but it moonlights as something a little more stylish and adventuresome.
