The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
9.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Dodge Avenger has an eye-catching design and is well-equipped, but it failed to provide an inspiring driving experience. The 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid makes an extraordinary leap forward in fuel economy--but also, in its appealing looks and handling.
