Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Fusion Hybrid 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 Hybrid will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mazda Mazda6.

Convenience
The Ford Fusion Hybrid will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Mazda Mazda6, making it more convenient to drive.

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).

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 Hybrid is much higher than that for the Mazda Mazda6.

Drivetrain
