The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Chrysler Sebring’s reasonable road manners and wealth of features are at odds with its ungainly looks and interior trim. The 2009 Toyota Corolla has a split personality: the utilitarian base car and the slightly edgy, expensive Corolla XRS.
