TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Ford Fusion blends enduring good looks, a wide variety of powertrains, impressive interior space and comfort along with all the latest electronic safety systems and a few design upgrades. The 2017 Hyundai Sonata is a strong family-sedan value, with inconspicuous looks hiding top-notch safety and fuel economy. The 2017 Nissan Altima remains a fine mainstream choice, but rivals with newer designs offer far more technology.
