I read this just a while ago and wondered why Ford declined to participate. I cross-shopped a Fusion and Accord before buying my 6. I've driven Hyundai/Kia and an Altima as rentals and didn't consider them in the running when shopping.
I found the Fusion to be nice, but didn't fit me well. I also don't care for the MFT and liked the controls in the 6 way better. The Ford is also all over the place now, so the look to me is a bit more "meh" anymore than it was when it first came out. Also, the higher end trims aren't really all that much to look at ... at least for me.
The Accord was nice, in a bland sort of way. I skipped the Sport model since it just didn't have the features in it I wanted, but it looks much better than the higher trim models. Honda needs to rethink the packaging on that. Might have made it a harder choice for me if it went that way. The CVT was OK ... not my cup of tea, but light-years better than the one I've driven in a Altima. I just like the Mazda more, which is why I bought one.
