The Ford Fusion is set to turn the sedan world upside down. In fact, the new 2010 edition is arguably the most complete mid-size passenger car on the planet. With four different powertrains -- including gasoline-electric hybrid propulsion -- all-wheel-drive availability and exclusive features and options, the Fusion has become the automotive equivalent of a full-course buffet. In the three years since the Fusion, along with its Mercury Milan and Lincoln MKZ sister ships were launched, Ford has continued to benchmark the leading sedan contenders, including the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Chevrolet Malibu and Nissan Altima.

Bigger might not always be better, but the CX-9's dimensions and packaging will no doubt bringing plenty of new shoppers into Mazda showrooms. The company's latest wagon offers truly inspired styling, plenty of room and thoughtful attention to detail. But many who gaze upon this sleek and shapely Mazda will likely think they've seen it somewhere before. That deja vu perception is quite understandable since the Japanese-based, Ford-controlled company also produces the CX-7, a similar-looking, but smaller machine that was introduced last year.

The Mazda6 morphs from competent family car to fast and frenzied grand-touring machine now that it has been given the full-on turbocharged and all-wheel-drive Mazdaspeed treatment. For the uninitiated, the Mazdaspeed sobriquet is applied to those normally benign vehicles that have received an upgrade in power, handling and general appearance. The resulting turnkey "tuner" model allows buyers to forgo the trouble and expense of selecting and installing their own aftermarket accessories at the risk of voiding the factory warranty.

While most auto makers seem bent on churning out a succession of ever-expanding minivans, Mazda has taken the opposite approach by downsizing the format.
