The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Dodge Avenger has an eye-catching design and is well-equipped, but it failed to provide an inspiring driving experience. With a standout design; perky performance; great gas mileage; and exceptional value for the money, the 2013 Hyundai Sonata is one of the best buys among mid-size sedans.
