Don't put in that order for a Ford Fusion just yet — for the same money you can get an equally sexy 2014 Mazda6 that gets the same MPG! Wait, hm. This is going to be tough.
Mazda announced today that the 2014 Mazda6 will start at $21,675 (with destination charge) and get 26 city/38 highway/30 combined with the auto. Knock off one MPG on each of those stats for the manual. Who knows if these will be as high in the real world, as Ford owners are currently finding out.
