2020 Mazda6 vs. 2020 Ford Fusion | Mission, TX
High-performance, luxurious sedans are known for their striking exteriors, well-appointed interiors, and great power under the hood. If you don’t want to pay luxury prices and still get an appealing car, your two top choices are the 2020 Mazda6 and the 2020 Ford Fusion. Here’s why the 2020 Mazda6 is the better option:
The 2020 Mazda6 tops the 2020 Ford Fusion in terms of power. The base engine under the hood of the Ford Fusion serves up a meager 175 horsepower and 175 lb-ft, and though the Fusion offers an extensive range of engine options, its most powerful manages just 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. The base engine of the 2020 Mazda6, however, is a potent SKYACTIV®-G 2.5-liter DOHC four-cylinder, good for 187 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque. But for true power, go with the available Dynamic Pressure Turbo SKYACTIV®-G 2.5T engine, which produces 250 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque.
With any vehicle, safety should be a top consideration. Both the 2020 Mazda6 and 2020 Ford Fusion offer impressive safety technologies, but the Mazda6 has performed better in Insurance Institute for Highway Safety testing. The Mazda6 earned the institute’s Top Safety Pick+ rating — the highest one offered — while the Fusion only managed a Top Safety Pick distinction. The Mazda6 boasts an abundance of safety technologies, including the Traffic Sign Recognition System, Smart Brake Support, Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Advanced Smart City Brake Support, Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane-keep Assist, adaptive front-lighting system, a Lane Departure Warning System, High Beam Control, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
If you want luxurious details without luxury prices, your better bet is the 2020 Mazda6 over the Ford Fusion. The Signature trim especially boasts luxury details like Nappa leather seating and Japanese Sen wood. The exterior design of the Mazda6 is powerful thanks to the KODO: Soul of Motion design language.
