The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
We’ve always wanted a sedan as sleek and comfortable as this—but if the Regal’s going to wear a Buick badge, it probably needs more room and more power. The 2011 Hyundai Sonata takes some smart styling and performance risks to raise its profile.
