The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.2
6.3
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Ford Fusion still delivers great hybrid fuel economy and classic good looks, even though it's set to retire. The 2019 Nissan Altima is a sharper sedan now, made better with great active safety features and a newly available turbo-4.
