It's time again for a look at two family cars--this time we present the 2010 Ford Fusion and the 2010 Suzuki Kizashi. We'll take a quick peek at both cars through the eyes of our parent site, The Car Connection, and see which one comes out on top.

The Fusion was restyled for 2010, while the Kizashi is a new entrant into the field. Fusion offers both V-6 and four-cylinder power, while the Kizashi is only available with a four-cylinder for now.

These two cars both attempt to appeal to mid-size buyers who like a little sportiness in their four-doors.  So which car comes out on top?

Is it the Ford, which has been around for two generations? Or is it the upstart Kizashi?

Read on to find out.

  1. I couldn't disagree more with the author as to the Fusion nosing out the Kizashi in this head on head comparison. For the last two weeks, my wife and I test drove both vehicles on all kinds of roads on numerous different occasions. After driving the Kizashi, the Ford felt huge and lazy. OTOH, the Kizashi gave us much more of a sense of road feel and was by far the more fun car to drive. Steering felt light and tight on the Kizashi and heavy and boring on the Fusion. On top of that, the Kizashi is a little more economical, especially with gas mileage. Another important factor is that you don't get daytime running lights with the Ford, but they come standard on the Suzuki Kizashi. Bottom line is you get more for you money with the Kizashi, and it's way more fun to drive than the Fusion. Better sound system, too.
