2018 Mazda6 vs 2019 Ford Fusion vs 2019 Subaru Legacy: Midsize Sedan Showdown

This is going to be an interesting battle. The 2018 Mazda6 is fresh from a major facelift for the current model year. I personally love this car. I think it’s the best-looking midsize sedan in the market today, apart from the fact it is gifted with an athletic demeanor. However, I also like the 2019 Ford Fusion. This is not because it still resembles an Aston Martin at first glance, but it remains a true driver’s car while still remaining civilized for the daily drive.

This is the heavyweight championship fight between three of the top-selling full-size SUVs. The 2018 Toyota Sequoia carries over unchanged from last year’s model.

The 2018 Ford Expedition is now motivated by a twin-turbo V6 motor. It is now more fuel efficient while still having the highest tow rating of all full-size SUVs.

For others, the most important spec might be the display, or the speakers. But take heed: They're all out there, and they don't cost $1000 apiece. What spec matters most to you?
