The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Toyota Camry is the most fuel-efficient way to transport the family in a traditional-looking, comfortable four-door sedan. After more than a decade on the market, the latest Hyundai Sonata's an overnight success--thanks to great gas mileage, grabby styling, and exceptional value for the dollar.
