The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
Riper and more mature, the latest Chrysler 300 has classically handsome looks and in the right versions, big rear-drive fun. The 2013 Toyota Avalon is more responsive and sophisticated than ever before, without giving up any comfort; and in the new Avalon Hybrid, 40 mpg has never been so serene.
