TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Buick Regal remains one of GM's most handsome, composed sedans--just skip the base engine, and make sure rear-seat passengers are small. The 2017 Ford Fusion blends enduring good looks, a wide variety of powertrains, impressive interior space and comfort along with all the latest electronic safety systems and a few design upgrades. The 2017 Nissan Maxima is the wild child of the Nissan bunch. It looks the part, but don't be fooled: after first blush it acts more like a near-luxury cruiser.
