TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Honda Accord is one of the best sedans available, a must-drive for any shopper. The 2021 Hyundai Sonata wears luxury threads in pricey models, but all versions get excellent safety and warranty coverage. The 2021 Kia K5 gives the automaker a new look and a new family-sedan identity.
