TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Ford Fusion comes in a few finely developed flavors; Sport, Hybrid and base are a few of the best tastes. The 2011 Mazda Mazda6 is a great pick for practically-minded family-car shoppers who also value driving enjoyment. The 2011 Subaru Legacy is one of the best-handling mid-size sedans, and the only mainstream one to offer standard all-wheel drive.
