Well, different people will have different feelings about what is comfortable, but...
Based on test drives, I think the Mazda6 seats are very comfortable in 2006 or 2007 models. If you think the new ones are hard, you should sit in a 2005...now those were too hard for me.
I am not a fan of too soft seats. Fusion also has seat that seems very comfortable to me...again only from test driving. Oddly, the Fusion seat seems better than Milan to me .
Accord also had a seemingly comfortable seat, when I test drove one of those.
I think those would be my top 3 picks for comfortable seat, which is a major factor for me and something I am very particular about. Altima and was the worst of those I have tried and Sebring was not too good either. Legacy and Sonata were maybe tolerable, but not something I would settle for.
Have not recently tried Camry, anything from GM, or Passat (which I know I would not like, as I prefer cloth to leather or pleather).

The front end was just awful in my opinion... the rear was a cross between an S-Type Jag and the ole "Russian cab." Other than the front, the car was nice looking though. Much better than the cousin Kia Optima of 2005.

Click here to watch an interesting video on the benefits of these safety control systems in vehicles. This was completed by Fifth Gear Magazine, an excellent BBC Car Program/Magazine.
The second half of the video contains most of the noteworthy footage.
If you are interested in some great car testing with British wit mixed in, you should also search www.youtube.com for Top Gear. Top Gear is a much more entertaining version of a show similar to Fifth Gear, with three funny hosts.

The current generation Sonata profile looks very much like the previous generation Audi A6, which it is exactly supposed to, since Hyundai benchmarked the A6 for the Sonata, not only in the "looks factor," but in other areas as well.

I'm talking about the old Sonata in the post I reply to. At no point recently have I referred to the current model Sonata, and am not disputing anything with the new one.

"Scape2 = by
Scape - why a pseudoname? To make it look like there are other Fusioners just like you?
CamCords owners don't need to resort to covert tactics. "
OK?? don't get this one??

"Everyone talking about the Fusion now, wait till you try to sell it 5 years from now and see what you can get for it. Honda has the best residual values followed by Toyota. You can't even find Ford on the list here...
A Fusion may be a value buy now, but it'll be like junk bonds when you trade it in someday. "
Been over and over this one... You paid $2-$4,000 more initially, not including interest. I sure hope your Honda/Toyota would be worth more. Besides, if you think a car is an investment.. I got a great big Red bridge to sell ya! Interested??

"Other more important factors like reliability and market acceptance have a big impact of those values"
Yet another Honda/Toyota fan in the past, out of the loop. You obviously haven't been paying attention. Fusion/Milan have won awards for styling/quality/fit/finish/reliability. Get on board..
