The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Ford Fusion has stunning good looks, satisfying performance, and top-notch safety and fuel economy--all without skimping on the interior space and ride comfort that really means something to mid-size sedan shoppers. The 2014 Hyundai Sonata remains one of the best buys among mid-size sedans--although with so many much-improved rival models, it's no longer such a standout. Following improvements that hit all the right spots, the 2014 Nissan Altima is a solid choice for those who don't mind a CVT.
