The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Toyota Camry may not be as attractive as some of its competitors, but it's now more than ever the most sensible choice for shoppers focused on value, frugality and comfort above all else. Chevy has taken a look elsewhere in its lineup, and in the market, and made the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu a stronger offering--with an emphasis on better gas mileage and more space.
