The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
8.8
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. The 2016 Kia Optima is better than its game-changing predecessor in nearly every way—except it’s a little less distinct.
