TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2016 Ford Fusion Hybrid combines high gas mileage and a quiet ride with one of the best-looking family-sedan bodies. Spacious and fuel efficient, the 2016 Hyundai Sonata is a worthy rival for America's best-selling family sedan. A new SR model brings some driving fun back to the 2016 Nissan Altima, while preserving its mainstream family-sedan appeal.
