TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Ford Fusion continues to offer an excellent blend of top-notch safety, solid fuel economy, and stunning good looks–all without compromising on interior space and comfort. The stunning exterior of the 2015 Mazda 6 isn't leading you on; with an athletic driving experience and a lot of sophistication for the money, this a charming sedan with a surprisingly frugal side. The 2015 Subaru Legacy smooths over its ruffles, and out-domestics some American family sedans with a big back seat, excellent gas mileage and standard all-wheel drive.
