2009 Ford Fusion vs. Its Competition

2009 Ford Fusion

The Altima comes with a manual-transmission option in four-cylinder versions, has great handling, and offers a little more room than the Ford.

Car shoppers want style, and the new-for-’08 Accord has newly sharpened handling and a snappy shape.

Meanwhile, the Camry is the more conservative choice in this class, with the best ride comfort and an especially spacious interior.

7.6
The 2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid melds the automaker's proven, hybrid system into America's bread-and-butter sedan. What's not to like?
8.4
The 2008 Nissan Altima is a little sportier, though not less sensible.
