2020 Mazda6 vs. 2020 Ford Fusion | Edinburg, TX
Are you on the hunt for a high-performance, luxurious sedan? Two of the industry’s most affordable and most impressive options are the 2020 Mazda6 and the 2020 Ford Fusion. But which of these two cars is right for you? When you look at the two side by side, the Mazda6 emerges as the clear victor. Here’s why:
While both the 2020 Mazda6 and the 2020 Fusion offer impressive safety features, only the 2020 Mazda6 has earned a Top Safety Pick+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the highest rating that the agency offers. Among the advanced safety technologies in the Mazda6 are High Beam Control, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, the Lane Departure Warning System, Lane-keep Assist, the adaptive front-lighting system, Blind Spot Monitoring, Advanced Smart City Brake Support, Smart Brake Support, Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go, and the Traffic Sign Recognition System.
The Ford Fusion lineup offers a wide range of engines, but none of them top the peak performance of the range-topping engine in the Mazda6. The base engine of the Fusion musters 175 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque, and at its most powerful, the Fusion can manage 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. The base engine of the Mazda6, on the other hand, is a SKYACTIV®-G 2.5-liter DOHC four-cylinder that pumps out 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. Its most powerful engine, however, is the available Dynamic Pressure Turbo SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T engine that cranks out 250 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque.
The Mazda6 is far more luxurious than the Ford Fusion. The exterior design of the Mazda6 is influenced by the automaker’s KODO: Soul of Motion aesthetic, and its top-of-the-line Signature trim includes luxurious materials like Japanese Sen wood and Nappa leather seating.
