Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Fusion offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Mazda Mazda6 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Ford Fusion will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mazda Mazda6.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Fusion as you will with the Mazda Mazda6, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Fusion will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mazda Mazda6. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Ford Fusion is much higher than that for the Mazda Mazda6.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Fusion is much wider than the Mazda Mazda6, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Ford Fusion takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mazda Mazda6.

Drivetrain
The Ford Fusion has much less torque than the Mazda Mazda6, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Ford Fusion has a larger turning radius than the Mazda Mazda6, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Fusion is significantly less powerful than the Mazda Mazda6. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Fusion and the Mazda Mazda6. The Ford Fusion has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mazda Mazda6.

Warranty
The Ford Fusion comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mazda Mazda6.
