Default Really just BS here :)

So my company are offering me a new car. The choice is either the Fusion SE V6 or the Five Hundred SEL.

Both cars have the same engine. The Fusion is more sporty and the 500 has more room. The reviews are actually good for both cars.

I think I like the Fusion more but I have to see how much smaller it is compared to the 500. Dont forget that I will have to take customers out in it and then I'll be able to use it with the wife and 2 kids at the w.e.

One last thing I was looking to see if there are any mod chips Seeing as I will have to turn the car back in when its life is over. The only $$ I will put in it will be tint.

I've driven both cars, and they are a huge step up from the cars ford used to have. I like the fusion overall better, except those stupid ugly clear tail lights. I think the back seat in the fusion is too small for a business car. The 500 is the way to go for you. Looks really good in black.

Well going to have to look at them to be sure. About 90% of the time it will be me driving to customers and then out for those lunches. So if the Fusion drives better then that will be ok even if its smaller.
As for the color I think I like the Alloy which is a dark gray. I had a black one once and I just dont get to the car wash often enough and the company car sits outside.

The fusion is sportier feeling on the road. The v-6 felt pretty quick. The alloy is a nice color too. The 500 seems more expensive inside, more laid back and comfertable. Its a bigger car so the v-6 feels slower.
