TCC’s Bottom Line
A riper, more mature Chrysler 300 renews our faith in restrained American styling--and in big V-8, rear-drive fun. The 2011 Ford Taurus isn’t quite a game-changing sedan, but it's a handsome, solid, high-quality choice. For road or track, the 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe is one of the best performance values on the market.
