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. Following improvements that hit all the right spots, the 2014 Nissan Altima is a solid choice for those who don't mind a CVT.
