The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
9.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
If great handling and good looks are your first consideration, the 2008 Ford Fusion's a great choice. But there are more fuel-efficient, more roomy sedans for families. Whether you're looking for a comfy commuter in the $20,000 range or a luxurious, powerful $30,000 family sedan, the newly redesigned 2008 Honda Accord should be on your shortlist.
