The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
If you seek proof that Detroit in general, and Ford in particular, can build a comfortable, high-quality, fine-driving, and hyper-efficient sedan that is more than competitive, look to the 2010 Ford Fusion. The 2009 Mazda6 could easily steal sales from the traditional class leaders if non-gearheads discover it.
