Ford redesigned its Fusion for the 2010 model year, and while it's still a midsize sedan, it has more passenger and luggage capacity than the Toyota Camry.

The more upscale and contemporary redesign included redesigning the seats to improve comfort and side support, and the gauges to feature daytime backlighting for easier readability. The 2010 Ford Fusion is powered by one of three gasoline engine choices -- a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, a 3-liter V-6 and a 3.5-liter V-6 -- as well as a hybrid powertrain.

Exclusive features include Ford's voice-activated, hands-free communication and entertainment system called SYNC; voice-activated navigation with Sirius TravelLink, which offers real-time traffic and weather, fuel prices and entertainment information such as movie times and sports scores; a capless fuel system, which does not require removing the gas cap to refuel; and a cabin air filter that removes irritants and toxins. Safety features include a backup camera and a blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross traffic alerts.
