2019 Mazda6 vs 2019 Ford Fusion
With its athletic demeanor and tech-savvy interior, the 2019 Mazda6 has been admired as a standout choice for the midsize sedan segment. If we’re looking at the competition, few rival sedans put up a worthwhile fight stacked up to the Mazda6. The Ford Fusion remains one of the few diamonds in the rough to make a good case for itself. Join us now as we dig deeper into the 2019 Mazda6 and the 2019 Ford Fusion for a look at how these models compare.
The 2019 Mazda6 lineup offers five trim levels to choose from – Sport, Touring, Grand Touring, Grand Touring Reserve and Signature – with each more luxurious than the last. The 2019 Ford Fusion also offers 5 trim levels – S, SE, SEL, Titanium and V6 Sport. Though the two lineups feature a similar pricing structure, there’s a vast difference in what you get for feature offerings. Read on to see what we mean.

Comparing the Features of the 2019 Mazda6 and 2019 Ford Fusion Lineups
The 2019 Mazda6 consistently sets itself apart from other models in the segment with a more advanced set of standard and available features. On the technology front, the intelligent MAZDA CONNECT™ infotainment system displays through a vibrant 8-inch touchscreen display. The system keeps you connected with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, which allow you to send and receive texts, make calls and access your smartphone’s navigation seamlessly from your Mazda6 touchscreen. A Leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter finish off the carefully-crafted interior.
If we’re following the Mazda6, the standard package of the 2019 Ford Fusion is a bit of a letdown. In the center stack, a 4.2-inch LCD display leaves you feeling stuck in the past. Genuine Leather doesn’t make an appearance on the lineup until you reach the SEL, the Fusion’s third trim level.
From there, the Mazda6 only continues to advance. The 360-Degree View Monitor, Head-Up Display, Adaptive Headlights, premium Nappa Leather seat trim and genuine Japanese Sen wood accents are just a few of the features found on the higher trim levels that can’t be found on the Fusion line.
