Ask AutoGuide No. 39

Midsize sedans represent a massive slice of the automotive pie. These four-door cars almost single handedly (or wheely?) form the backbone of America’s personal transportation network, shuttling people practically everywhere they need and want to go. Yeah, they’re kind of a big deal, and as a salute to these hard-working automobiles they’re the subject of this week’s installment of Ask AutoGuide.

Is Nissan's Altima the Ultimate Sedan?


2014 Nissan Altima

Although the Mazda6 won AutoGuide.com’s huge midsize-sedan comparison there are some buyers that want extra power from a four-door car without having to pay a lot more, or sacrifice fuel efficiency. The Altima 3.5 deserves the attention of these people.

Nissan’s fully loaded offering is equipped with many of the same modern features found in the Mazda plus a powerful V6 engine, something that’s becoming quite rare in the segment. With extra cylinders and displacement you might just be surprised how well this car fares in testing.

10. 2013 Ford Fusion vs. 2014 Mazda6


ford-fusion-vs-mazda6

This year was a busy year for AutoGuide as we put dozens of vehicles to the test in hopes of making your purchasing decision not only easier, but well informed. As we head into 2014, let’s take a look back at 2013′s most watched videos.

Starting off the list is our comparison video pitting the Ford Fusion against the new Mazda6. Both vehicles are stylish, efficient and fun family sedans that have quite the history together. In 2006, the two automakers were producing the Fusion and Mazda6 on the same platform as Ford held a one-third ownership stake in Mazda. But times have changed and the Mazda6 and Ford Fusion are now standing on their own. How do the two compare against one another?
