TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Chevrolet Malibu isn't edgy or high-performance, but it has everything that most mid-size sedan shoppers seek. The 2011 Hyundai Sonata takes some smart styling and performance risks to raise its profile. The 2011 Toyota Camry isn’t at the leading edge in any way, but it remains one of the smartest mid-size sedan picks.
