The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Pontiac G6 models have appealing styling inside and out, but they fail to wow in most other respects. The 2009 Ford Fusion is a great choice for those who place their priorities on style and handling, but if interior space matters to you, look elsewhere.
