Among the above, AWD is only offered on the Fusion.
For AWD and optimum visibility in a sedan, I'd look at the Subaru Legacy. For visibility without AWD, plus better long-term reliability, your best bet would be the Honda Accord. For 2017 the Accord is again available as a hybrid, if you want to go that route.
The Legacy has been very reliable from the 2010 model year on, but 15 years is a long time. The Ford and especially the Chevrolets have been less reliable than the Legacy.
15 years would be pushing it with a hybrid battery. And the system in the Malibu is brand new. The Honda system also has a limited record. The Fusion Hybrid is more proven.
If you are considering the Fusion, also check out the C-MAX. Very good visibility and handling in a tall hatchback. I enjoyed testing it much more than I did the Fusion or the typical small crossover (subject of your other post).
