My brother loves his. He got a 2018 Fusion SE 1.5 Ecoboost as a company car. I think he was able to negotiate down into the low/mid $17K range with the dealer, so you might want to shop around.

Usually I wouldn't buy from CarMax, but their Fusion prices are surprisingly right in the wheelhouse for Fusion prices from what I can tell.

I have a '17 Fusion AWD 2.0t and a '15 Mazda 6. Unless it's wet or snowy out the Fusion sees Mazda 6 tailights every time. Dig, roll, highway roll, always the same outcome.

The '16 2.0t is a different motor so not sure what the performance difference is.

When I do this over again (likely very soon) I'm going for rear-wheel biased AWD.

Interesting...The Mazda6's always felt quicker than the 187HP or whatever they're rated, but I'm surprised the Fusion would be slower...

I traded a '16 Accord EX for the Fusion. Hated the Accord, couldn't live with the CVT and super long gearing.

Passenger seat was also ridiculously low to the ground creating no thigh support. Be aware of this if you plan to use that seat.

My Dad is a huge Mazda humper and he didn't even consider the new 6 when he bought his Regal. They are so slow. The new motors killed he car. He had the old V6 and loved it.

So I'll toss his Regal in, he loves it and TURBO!

Yeah the '18 Grand Touring with the turbos are listing around $25k it looks like. Nice cars for sure. Some of those with less than 10k miles and certified too.

I drove the Regal, gave it a legit chance, just didn't like it. I mean, it was technically fine, but I drove a Fusion and Regal back to back, and the Fusion just felt better. I didn't really like the center stack/infotainment

Also, there was a new 2.0T for '17?
