The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Ford Taurus is the biggest sedan in its lineup, but it's short on rear-seat room, and it's beginning to feel its age. For those who don't want or need the Genesis' price tag, the 2016 Hyundai Azera satisfies the near-luxury need for style and features.
