The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Chrysler Sebring scores big on features, but it doesn’t stand up to its main competitors in most other ways. The 2009 Toyota Corolla has a split personality: the utilitarian base car and the slightly edgy, expensive Corolla XRS.
