The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Toyota Camry isn’t at the leading edge in any way, but it remains one of the smartest mid-size sedan picks. The 2011 Chevrolet Malibu isn't edgy or high-performance, but it has everything that most mid-size sedan shoppers seek.
