The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Hyundai Sonata takes some smart styling and performance risks to raise its profile. Honda hasn’t changed much about the Accord, and that’s a good thing. In base four-cylinder form, the 2010 Honda Accord feels sophisticated beyond its price range, and even as a $30,000 coupe or sedan, the top V-6 models offer compelling refinement, performance, and luxury.
