This topic is about midsize SEDANS. It is not Ford vs Honda. It is not foreign vs domestic. It is not large size sedans. It is not engines. It is not anything but head to head comparisons of the specific vehicles listed at the top of this page.
Those who want to continue to participate here have got to stick to the subject.

"It was a closed course designed to highlight advantages of AWD handling.
They could have put a FWD drive Fusion and a AWD Fusion together and the people would have said they preferred the AWD version on the course just as the people preferred the AWD Fusion to FWD Accords and Camrys.
I wonder how it would have gone if all the vehicles had been FWD?
Please, please, please, read the whole article. They were V6 Accord/Camry. So, since the Accord/Camry come with stability control, and the Fusion does not? then it would have been unfair again? They were "comparably priced". Meaning you can get an AWD Fusion for the same price as the Camry/Accord... It also give numbers of people who chose the Fusion, along with interviews. I just don't understand why it is so hard to believe a Ford could actually win something..

If Toyota or Honda had set up a closed course that they designed to highlight advantages of stability control (such emergency high speed lane changes/obstacle avoidance etc.) it would have been just as biased as Ford's closed course for AWD.
