TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid makes an extraordinary leap forward in fuel economy--but also, in its appealing looks and handling. The 2013 Mazda6 is a little more enjoyable to drive than other mid-size sedans, and its roomy, comfortable interior is another advantage, but it's behind the curve in occupant safety and tech features. The 2013 Subaru Legacy retains its unique position as an affordable, fun-to-drive mid-size sedan with standard all-wheel drive--and adds some standout safety technology.
