The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.4

TCC’s Bottom Line

A great choice for older drivers, the 2008 Ford Taurus excels on its size, safety gear, and large instrumentation, but falls behind the Honda Accord in driving excitement. The 2010 Hyundai Azera appeals to sedan shoppers on a budget who value comfort and interior space above all else.
