What!!!!???? What does a stupid Microsoft gimmick do for essential value of automobiles??? It's just one of stupid toys. Horizontal all aluminum engine with symmetric Awd is a jewel. Don't dare compare it with a stretched out econo-box. There is soul in Subaru.

Uhmmm, perhaps you should check your work. You've posted some of the photos twice. Hence no shots of the cars interiors, which it would seem logical to show since you do make comparisons between them.

Looked hard at both (Fusion Sport AWD and the Legacy H6). The Ford has the edge with the Sync system, better bluetooth/ipod integration especially with the Nav system. Reviewer is mistaken, the Ford 6 speed auto does have a manual mode. Styling is a personal thing, but the new Legacy, side profile, does not work for me. The standard interior in the Fusion Sport is all black, garish red/blue is an option.
