The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Ford Fusion stays at the top of its game, especially as a Hybrid, with perky handling and its cut-above looks. The 2012 Mitsubishi Galant has endured as a rental-fleet special, but sedan shoppers would do better with nearly every other mid-size four-door on the market.
