TCC’s Bottom Line
More tech this year makes the 2021 Honda Accord a compelling buy, but the options can rack up. The 2021 Hyundai Sonata wears luxury threads in pricey models, but all versions get excellent safety and warranty coverage. The 2022 Subaru Legacy takes a pass on performance, but aces its safety and value tests.
