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 Mazda 6 is a beauty, with refined, perky powertrains and a driving experience that mostly delivers on what the exterior suggests. The 2014 Subaru Legacy continues to represent a good value as a sporty, affordable, all-wheel-drive sedan that's fun to drive--as long as you're not looking for the latest gadgets and gimmicks.
