The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. Although the Jetta’s doesn't offer the farfegnugen it once did, the 2009 Volkswagen Jetta provides spacious interior room and efficient clean-diesel technology.
