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.

We researched full road tests from a wide range of respected Web sites, to declare that the 2008 Ford Fusion's a good choice in the mid-size sedan category--with a few reservations. We also tested the Ford car and compared our observations, to offer our expert opinion along with those recommendations.

There's plenty to like about the 2008 Ford Fusion. It shares its mid-size platform with the Mazda6, but it's a very different looking machine.
