Selected Edmunds.com visitor vehicle reviews:

Picked up this car @ the end of May & have to say, so far, it has lived up to past reviews; it is a TERRIFIC car in all categories. The ride, build quality, comfort, tech features, etc. - it's all on point! The interior is VERY quiet & the sound system is like having the Boston Symphony Orchestra riding along with you. I have owned MANY cars thru the years & have to say that by far, this is the best sounding system I have EVER heard; figures, with 12 speakers! The features are all customizable & you can turn on / off, the things you don't need / use. The owner's manual is quite extensive, I use it as a reference, rather than read it in its entirety! Don't walk, RUN to your dealer & get one!

Technical

The 2016 Ford Fusion's6 all-wheel drive makes it the clear choice for anyone who loves off-roading, or simply staying on the road in slippery conditions.
Enjoy the increased safety, fuel economy, and yes, fun, of the 2016 Ford Fusion's4 optional turbocharged engine. Sadly, turbo isn't an option on the 2015 Nissan Altima.

The 2016 Ford Fusion's7 wider wheelbase can mean greater stability. How much more stability? A noteworthy 3 inches' worth.

Pricing

The difference in MSRP between the 2016 Ford Fusion7 and the 2015 Nissan Altima3 may seem significant, until you consider what you're missing when you opt to save that $300: loads of standard features, some for safety and some just for fun. Suddenly, that $300 doesn't seem like much of a "savings" at all, does it?
