The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Honda Accord is one of the best sedans available, a must-drive for any shopper. The 2020 Hyundai Sonata mid-size sedan steps out like Joe Jackson among cut-and-paste shapes from the past. The 2021 Kia Optima is the automaker’s mid-size sedan that not only starts a new look but also a new identity.
